Open in new windowAbuelo’s Mexican Restaurant announced this week that on February 15th, it’s location on 2520 S. I-35E in Lewisville will close its doors. The property has been purchased through eminent domain by the Texas Department of Transportation for use in the Interstate 35 expansion project. The state’s purchase price was not listed as of Thursday, but the property was on the tax rolls at $2.6 million. The restaurant had been in business at the location since 1999.

Food Concepts International, the Lubbock based parent company of Abuelos, said they were in the process of finalizing plans for a new location in The Colony, near the new Nebraska Furniture Mart on SH 121. They hope to open the restaurant there by September of this year.

“With regret, we are closing our location in Lewisville,” said Robert Lin, president of Food Concepts International. “We are very thankful to our guests and employees for their loyal patronage and service over the past 15 years in Lewisville. We invite everyone to visit us at any of our other DFW locations, and we are looking forward to a new opening in the Colony area soon.”

Lewisville diners hoping to get their Abuelo’s fix will have to visit one of their five other DFW Abuelos restaurants:
· Hurst at 850 Airport Freeway, 817-514-9355
· West Plano at 3701 Dallas Parkway, 972-781-1613
· East Plano at 3420 N. Central Expressway, 972-423-9290
· Arlington at 1041 West I-20, 817-468-2622
· Fort Worth at 4740 S. Hulen Street, 817-386-5600
