It’s official. Taco Diner is serving their final customers today.
Taco Diner closed their West Village restaurant in September of 2021 after 20 years in operation, and they closed five more spots in the months leading up to that. The Lake Highlands Town Center location, which opened in 2018 and is part of the MCrowd conglomerate which also owns Mi Cocina, had been the only remaining Taco Diner.
Waiters at Taco Diner told surprised patrons stopping in Saturday that they’d miss the familiar faces which return regularly with their families. Some staff members may go to work at the thriving Mi Cocina across the street, and some may move on to other things, they said.
Loyal readers saw our November post, which hinted that Cane Rosso, an authentic wood-fired pizza joint with locations in Dallas, Carrollton, Frisco, Arlington and Fort Worth, recently signed a contract to open a new spot in the town center. The big mystery was which location in the fully-leased center they’d be taking. That mystery is now solved.
No word yet on what renovations the Cane Rosso folks have in mind or when they’ll host a grand opening.
