KENT, Ohio — Come this summer, residents in Kent will have something new to chow down on: tacos. Barrio announced it's opening a sixth Ohio location this summer in Kent on South Water Street.

"We are so excited to see Barrio grow into more neighborhoods in just 7 years since we opened the first in Tremont, Ohio. Our initial intention when opening Barrio was to give Tremont a taco joint, so we are very grateful to introduce Barrio to new neighborhoods where people of all ages can enjoy," said owner Sean Fairbairn in a news release.

If you haven't been to the popular taco joint before, the restaurant features a build-your-own menu. You can customize your tacos with a wide range of freshly prepared topping and ingredients.

The restaurant's chief artist, Mac, will head down to Kent soon to paint his recognizable Day of the Dead celebrations on the restaurant's wall.
