Tacos and Tequila, Haymarket VA

Another great restaurant build with Jim Speros and the Velocity Restaurant and Hospitality Group. The newest addition to their group of restaurants “Locals Tacos and Tequila” located in the Merchants View Square Shopping Center in Haymarket VA. This 3,400 square foot restaurant and bar offers indoor and outdoor dining in a festive, fun atmosphere. 

“They were able to make changes efficiently when needed and the success to each project was the ability to communicate effectively throughout the entire process.”

– James L. Speros, Chairman & CEO, The Velocity Restaurant & Hospitality Group

Upon completion, the vibrant and top quality interior of this restaurant showcases itself as another polished gem in Area Construction Group’s portfolio of Build-outs. This was a fun project for ACG and we thoroughly enjoyed working with Jim Speros and the Velocity Restaurant and Hospitality Group. Here’s what CEO Jim Speros had to say about working with ACG:


“I would personally like to share my experience from working with Area Construction.


Over the past two years I have been involved with Area Construction in two significant restaurant construction projects – one in Fairfax, VA and one in Haymarket, VA. I found my experiences with them to be very rewarding.
They led and navigated us through all of the phases of construction which included budgets, scheduling, permits and construction.


They were able to make changes efficiently when needed and the success to each project was the ability to communicate effectively throughout the entire process.
In the restaurant business there are a lot of moving pieces. They worked tirelessly to meet all deadlines and keep the project moving in a timely manner to completion.
I would highly recommend Area Construction for any construction project – whether large or small.“
