Wonder if the Larkin location will be kid friendly?

What does that mean?
You can't smoke in any of'em, so... ?
High chairs and boosters specifically.
when our kids were that age, they didn't have high chairs. Also, it was difficult to find seating for groups of 5 or more. And they really gave the impression that they had no use for any amount of lingering. Then Holy Taco opened 9 years ago.

Yeah, Holy Taco charges a premium that Tacqueria del Sol does not, that helps pay for some degree of camping.
TdS works on a flow the people through rapidly model. If people camp, there's nowhere for the people still coming in to sit.
I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence or insanity but they've always worked for me.

yeah, and taqueria can be a bit intense.  my boss has a broken leg and he wasnt allowed to go sit down and wait while we ordered.  there were only 2 sets in front of us so it wasn't a table issue, it was mostly just their intense rules. 
I dont recall seeing any boosters but i dont usually look for those sort of things.
Yes, I agree, with that I knew someone close that smoked and went to chewing tobacca. Used a spit can which was yuck, and then the door of his car.~Denise

Their model is definitely high transaction and doesn't encourage sitting down and taking a load off for a while.  And no, they don't have boosters or high chairs at any of their locations (that I have seen).  And more power to 'em.  It would make the already oppressively long lines even more so.

That's a respectable business decision. It's good to have choices.
