Early morning hours and a new late night menu are in the works for fall at Swell Taco in Patchogue Village.

Previously closed for the night at 10 p.m., Swell will be open soon until 1 a.m. Thursdays through Saturday nights, said co-owner Brooke Jankow, who also operates a Swell in Babylon.

The late night scene will only be happening in Patchogue, however.

Ownership had found this summer they would get a rush later into the night, so they decided on a 1 a.m. closing time and came up with a late-night menu.

“We’re adding lots of chips, nachos, and snack options right now,” said Jankow.

Swell Taco, which serves up California-style Tex-Mex, is located at 30 East Main Street, across from The Amazing Olive and Paper Doll Curiosity Shoppe.

The 1 a.m. hours start next weekend.


The Swell Taco team is also working on some fall dinner specials for the season.

“We’re going to be serving enchiladas suizas, shrimp empanadas, chimichangas. It’s a little bit different from what we’ve done but we’re really excited to present it [the menu] to the community,” said Jankow.

Each meal will be served as a platter, which will include rice, fried black beans, sour cream and salsa.

Queso lovers will not want to miss out on the enchiladas suizas, she says.

“It’s a flour tortilla filled with cheese and smothered and baked in salsa verde.”

There will also be more live music with DJ’s that will accompany the Taco Tuesdays parties.

“We have a lot of fun ideas and things that we’re going to do to embrace the fall season,” Jankow said.
