In what seems like decades since it was first announced, Rockford is getting a new addition to the downtown restaurant scene.

According to Instagram, Taco Betty's opened for lunch today at 11 a.m.

Announced in December of 2015, Taco Betty's, located at 212 E. State Street, was scheduled to open in May of 2016.

Nearly a year later, Rockford residents get their first taste of what Taco Betty's is all about.

According to the Rockford Register Star, investor Brett Hughes says Taco Betty's menu will consist "of around five gourmet tacos that will rotate on a regular basis and a variety of a la carte items."

Taco Betty's Facebook page says they offer "modern tacos, beer, large format cocktails, urban setting downtown Rockford, lively atmosphere."

The Taco Betty's Instagram says it's #worththewait, but is it? If you're going to Taco Betty's let us know what you think.
