Welcome to ToucanTaco.com, the website for Laurel Maryland’s favorite Mexican restaurant. We are located at 315 Gorman Ave. in the heart of Laurel, just minutes from the Baltimore-Washington Parkway and Interstate 95.

A Laurel landmark since 1972, Toucan Taco began as one of the Tippy’s Taco House franchises. In 1992 the franchise agreement expired and that forced the owners to change the name. Inspiration for the new name came from a family pet, a toucan bird called “Cyrano.” After 35 years of running the business, Laszlo and Lita Payerle decided to retire and sell the restaurant. Their daughter, Ginger, decided that the family business should remain a family business and agreed to purchase it from her parents in January of 2008. Throughout it all Toucan Taco has strived to maintain the same level of excellent quality that our loyal customers have come to expect. From our family to yours….~Enjoy.
