Kesaris and Nettles debuted their Cali-style tacos at Workshop in September 2018, occupying the largest stall until the coronavirus pandemic temporarily closed the rotating food hall. Although they did not return to Workshop, Rebel’s food truck has continued to roam the Lowcountry during the pandemic and will remain operational for select events once the restaurant opens.

Fans of Rebel’s specialty tacos, burritos and beverages will be pleased with the restaurant’s new menu.

“Our motto is tacos, tequila and cold beer, and we will continue to focus on that,” said Kesaris. The expanded offering will feature food truck favorites and hits from their Taco Tuesday Takeover at The Brick, a weekly residency that’s been going on for three years.

Kesaris said he hopes to have the new restaurant up and running within three months.
