Here’s a sentence we thought we’d never say: it looks like George Lopez is following in Wiz Khalifa’s footsteps. The rapper partnered with restaurant management company Nextbite last year to create Hot Box, a delivery-only wing and tater tot restaurant that operates out of ghost kitchens in various cities.

Now, comedian George Lopez and Nextbite will drop George Lopez Tacos on cities across the country, including Atlanta and San Diego, on June 8th. Like Hot Box, George Lopez Tacos will operate out of local Atlanta kitchens that will serve as pick-up points for online orders through systems like UberEats, DoorDash, Postmates, and GrubHub.

According to Eater, George Lopez may be the brains behind the street taco recipes at the new virtual restaurant. And while we love a good laugh, we’re expecting these tacos to be no joke.
