TEPITO TEX MEX GRILL CLOSES IN LANSDOWNE

Tepito Tex Mex Grill has closed in the Lansdowne Town Center after roughly a year in business. The doors are locked, lights are off and center representatives confirm the closure.

The well-reviewed restaurant, known for its margaritas and its fajitas, is the latest in a string of eateries to operate in that space. It was previously Roxy’s Rotisserie Chicken before it became Tepito.

It’s surprising as the dining scene at Lansdowne Town Center has been picking up in recent months with stalwarts such as Not Your Average Joe’s and the recently expanded Deli Italiano joined by the new French Hound Brasserie and Ford’s Fish Shack. Mr. Sushi & Mrs. Roll, a new sushi place, will be opening soon and there are rumors circulating of more restaurants to come. No word yet on who will take over the Tepito space.
