Taq Amor

Tim Spinner rose through the ranks in some of Philadelphia’s most prestigious restaurants getting his start at El Vez back in 2003. He then went on to open Amada and Distrito along side Iron Chef Jose Garces. From there he branched off with his business partner to open Cantina Feliz, La Calaca and Taqueria Feliz. Cantina and Calaca Feliz went on to be awarded 3 Bells from Philadelphia food critic Craig Laban. Taqueria Feliz has become a mainstay in Manayunk for the past 7 years.


Spinner’s love for the vibrant cuisine and adoring culture are translated through his menus. From the streets of Mexico City to the mountains of Puebla Spinner and his team built the foundations for Taqueria Amor.


After 25 years in the industry and 17 years running many of Philadelphia’s premier Mexican restaurants Spinner now resides in Lafayette Hill with his amazing wife and 5 wonderful children. Upon their 5th child Mack “Surprise” Spinner, Tim felt his own rebirth. It had always been a passion of his to branch off on his own and after the birth of #5, Spinner saw that as a unprecedented sign.
