The task was to position a small local Mexican fast food restaurant, Roberto’s Taco Shop, against its larger, well-known counterparts on a minimal budget.


Roberto’s Taco Shop, situated in Oceanside, CA, is renowned for its delectable Mexican cuisine, prepared by chefs hailing directly from Mexico. An intriguing observation was the high turnover rate of employees, attributed to their immigration status, which further emphasized the authentic nature of the cuisine. Roberto’s commitment to traditional Mexican recipes and authentic cookery set them apart from the crowd, even attracting attention from the U.S. Border Patrol due to their Mexican chefs.


We decided to highlight Roberto’s authenticity by developing a playful, yet thought-provoking print ad campaign. The campaign leveraged the narrative of their genuine Mexican chefs to create a memorable, humorous, and engaging message. We launched these mini-posters throughout the local community, attracting attention and conversation.
