Tijuana Flats has closed its doors after less than two years of operation at its Dilworth store.
Charlotte Restaurant Traffic, a local restaurant blog, reported that the Orlando-based Mexican restaurant closed last Friday, and that there’s no indication of what will go into its 2,700-square-foot site at 1608 East Blvd. next.
The restaurant, however, tweeted last week that it’ll open another Charlotte location in June, and “more to follow nearby.”
Never miss a local story.
When the East Boulevard location opened in 2013, Tijuana Flats had said it wanted to open 15 locations in North Carolina eventually. The Tex-Mex restaurant previously operated stores in Charlotte on Prosperity Church Road and Pineville-Matthews Road and on Gilead Road in Huntersville – all which have since closed.
Before Tijuana Flats, the East Boulevard spot was occupied by Italian Pie. Other Tex-Mex restaurants nearby include Moe’s and Bakersfield.
Tijuana Flats has over 100 locations across Florida, Georgia, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Indiana, South Carolina and North Carolina, including one other Charlotte-area location in Gastonia.
