Maverick Rock Taco on Montford Drive is closing its doors. Its last day of operation will be Aug. 7.

The Tex-Mex restaurant announced its closure this weekend on its Facebook page, though it didn’t say why it is closing. An employee said a concept called Carmella’s Pizza is taking its place.

“We’ve had so many laughs here with you all and we wanted to announce that as our community continues to grow, so will we,” the post read.

The restaurant’s last day will include a “Sunday Funday” celebration. Ahead of the closing, Maverick said it is encouraging customers to share photos from the restaurant using the hashtag #maverickrocktaco‬. It’ll share the photos on its social media pages.

Maverick Rock Taco at 1513 Montford Dr. is owned by Xenia Group, the same group that owns ilios noche and Big View Diner.
