Wild Taco
Yoon Terry

Wild Taco is a culinary-driven concept that originated from a professional friendship between the COO, Yoon Terry and the CEO, Rico Aragon years ago in Vail, when the two worked together at various Vail restaurants. The friends’ culinary paths would cross again in 2022 when they realized they shared a vision to bring a unique taco concept to Denver and Wild Taco Denver was born. The two experienced industry veterans, Aragon and Terry, have capitalized on their common love of modern Mexican food, with Terry’s South Korean heritage as the distinguishing factor and added a twist to the otherwise classic Mexican cuisine and cocktail program. Maximizing on its uniqueness the popularity and potential for the future has been more than evident.  Their aim has always been to create the ultimate casual, fun but most of all creative yet still classic taco restaurant-bar-patio lounge experience with friendly service, crave worthy food and libation menu, served a lively atmosphere.
