Taco Land: San Antonio’s Famous Dive Bar

Taco Land was a classic dive bar loved by the fringe element and run by the exquisitely profane Ram Ayala. He started booking punk shows in the early 80s and rock shows throughout, becoming a home for native and touring rockers, and the club was immortalized in a 1987 Dead Milkman song. Sadly, Ayala was murdered during a 2005 robbery, but he remains a legendary figure in the San Antonio music community. The Current gathers some predictably colorful anecdotes from the regulars.
