Taqueria de Zandra renovates dining room and adds rooftop bar


July 08, 2021

When COVID-19 hit, many businesses struggled to stay open and considered creative changes in the way they operate.

Miguel Pires took advantage of the pandemic to renovate his restaurant, Taqueria de Zandra in Manassas.

“My goal was to get out of burgeoning COVID, instead of just hanging on to my dear life,” Pires explained.

Over the past year, the downstairs dining room has been renovated. A rooftop bar and lounge have also been added.

Pires, a native of Manassas, founded the company in October 2014. Located at 9114 Center Street, its name is based on his wife’s childhood nickname.

La Taqueria de Zandra focuses primarily on taco creations, an idea that was sparked by Pires’ trips to Charleston, SC, Los Angeles, and New York.

New tacos and other items are popping up on the menu, which should be fully available by the end of July.

“We just appreciate all the support we’ve received… from the community throughout the past year, and none of this would have been possible without them,” Pires said. “So we’re just thankful to be up and running again and to start doing what we’re doing again.”

La Taqueria de Zandra is currently open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. on weekdays. Its hours are from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. on weekends.
