Taco Palenque was founded by Juan Francisco Ochoa from Sinaloa, Mexico. Juan Francisco Ochoa and Don Chicho were the creators of the Pollo Loco secret chicken recipe. They both opened several Pollo Loco fanchises in Mexico in the late 1970's and the United States in the 1980's. In 1985, Juan Francisco moved to Monterrey where he planned to create a Mexican fastfood chain in the United States with drive thrus that served authentic Mexican food. In 1987, his plans came true when he opened his first Taco Palenque in Laredo, Texas. The chain expanded to McAllen in 1998, Brownsville in 2001, San Antonio in 2007, and to Nuevo Laredo, Mexico in 2008. In 2005 Palenque grill was established.
