Death by Tacos

Owned by husband and wife James and Clair Smith, Death by Tacos is a cornerstone of the Chester Market food hall, providing the best tacos around and authentic Mexican drinks.

Project Brief

James needed a website as a permanent home for their food and drink menus, and to open up an additional revenue stream. An online shop was to be included that would sell branded clothing and accessories.

A key part of the brief was that the website was in line with the established branding of their social media channels.

Soon after I launched my first website I started to compile a list of target companies, local independent business with a unique feel to them… Death by Tacos was one of the first to jump to mind. 

I approached James with a (very) rough single page website prepared over a couple of evenings to show him, he liked it, but potentially already had something lined up. I said I’d keep in touch… and I did, every few weeks popping into say hello and to see whether anything had progressed. 

Eventually, James must’ve got sick of me coming in to check on progress and said he’d work with me. 

Having spoken that often I already had an idea about what he wanted, but we ironed out the creases over a few emails and DMs and I set off to work.


I created on WordPress using the web builder Elementor Pro, and the WooCommerce plugin for the online shop.

James had already established a cool brand for Death by Tacos, so I knew I could just harness this to create a look and feel to the site that would fit right in.

The website consists of five static pages (a homepage, food and drinks menu pages, an offers page and a how to find us page) and an online shop with a few bits of Death by Tacos merch’.

As much as I liked that rough single page site I showed James over a year ago, the end result is leagues above it.


I love the site. It looks and operates exactly as I wanted it to. I was taking online orders straight off the bat when we went live without an issue.
