This is news that may make my co-workers happier than your co-workers: Taco Joint, located in the long-vacant Sonic at 134 E. Riverside Drive, opened for business last week. It is the second location of the Austin-born restaurant, which has a location at 2807 San Jacinto Blvd. The new restaurant, steps from the Statesman building, is opened 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday-Friday and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
