Tacos are about as plentiful around here as coneys and pizza, which doesn't keep a national player from jumping in anyhow.

Condado Tacos, which expanded to Michigan last August with a Royal Oak spot on South Main Street, now plans a March 12 arrival on Selden Street in the Cass Corridor, Eater Detroit posts. It'll be the 16th location of the build-your-own chain that began in 2014 in Columbus, Ohio, and is in four states.

Diners at Condado can choose from taco shell options ranging from a hard corn shell to a spicy Firecracker hard shell to a soft shell flour tortilla. The choices for filling include tequila lime steak, house-made chorizo, scrambled eggs, barbecue pulled jackfruit, Thai chili tofu and more.

Customers can then add on toppings like jicama-cabbage slaw, pickled red onions and queso. ...

The chain also offers a long list of margaritas sold by-the-glass and in pitchers.

The full bar features mezcal, tequila and beer as well.

Thirteen food photos are below, after six links to job openings in the kitchen, bar and front of the house. 

Location: 634 Selden St. (next to Smith & Co.)

► Hours: 11 a.m.-2 a.m. daily; 4-7 p.m. happy hour on weekdays

Menu: Fill-in sheet for scanning looks like a ballot.
