The mystery about what will replace the former Tennessee Roadhouse in south Alexandria is over.
It will be a Mexican restaurant.
El Loro Mexican Grill is scheduled to be on the Alexandria City Council’s Monday, April 26 agenda at 7:10 p.m. It’s applying for on-sale and Sunday liquor licenses at its location, 4820 Highway 29 South.
Rumors and wishes swirled around Alexandria this past February when a “sold” sign went up on the property. At the time, the 4,950-square-foot building was listed at $663,000.
The Tennessee Roadhouse closed in 2017 after the owners filed for bankruptcy.
El Loro Mexican Grill has 14 locations in the Twin Cities metro area. It offers a wide variety of Mexican dishes and specialties for lunch and dinner, including nachos, quesadillas, fajitas, burritos, chimichangas, tacos, combinations and more. It also serves vegetarian meals and desserts.
