Frank’s Taco Grill closes, Roma’s Pizza and Italian moves into the space

Just a year after it opened, Frank’s Taco Grill on Upper Greenville has shuttered its operations. Francisco “Frank” Salinas, a Lake Highlands dad, had hoped to fill the niche for healthy and affordable family friendly fare. His tacos, which ran just $1.50-$4, seemed popular with diners based on online reviews. A line on the restaurant’s website simply reads, “We are closed until further notice and apologize for the inconvenience.”

But the site at 7033 Greenville didn’t sit vacant for long.

Roma’s Pizza and Italian Restaurant made quick work of revamping the space to add archways and other European-inspired design touches (see the video here). The pizzeria previously sat a few blocks down at 7402 Greenville Ave. As part of the grand opening at the new location, expect to find food specials and discounts throughout May.

    I was sorry to see Frank’s close; his tacos were excellent. But it takes a lot of money to open a new restaurant and the location, not right on the street, would require even more to hang on while building up up a base of regular customers. Roma’s probably won’t have the same problem, given that it is already well established with many loyal customers (including us).
