Bobby Heskett is the founder of Capital Tacos, a fast-casual Tex-Mex taco chain based out of Tampa, Florida.

Capital Tacos has garnered numerous local, regional, and national distinctions for its fare, including being named by Foursquare as a Top 3 Taco In The United States. Capital Tacos is also a pioneer in the fast-casual space, recognized for providing a uniquely rounded combination of quality, variety, speed, and experiential value to its customers. Or, as The Tampa Bay Times and Tampa Bay Tribune put it, Capital Tacos is a “breath of fresh air” that makes folks “deliriously happy.”

Raised in the restaurant business, Bobby started working at a young age as a busboy, moving throughout the ranks at his family’s restaurant until founding Capital Tacos in 2013.

He prefers cooking Tex-Mex, as the food best represents regional American standard, and remains flexible as our tastes and preferences develop over time.

The taco is his main focus. The tortilla presents itself as a ‘blank canvas’; the perfect medium to receive a myriad of proteins, vegetables, fruits, salsas, herbs and spices. The ‘blank canvas’ comes to life everyday in his restaurants throughout the Tampa Bay Area.
