Taco Cabana closing 19 Texas restaurants

One of the locations is in Austin.

AUSTIN, Texas — Taco Cabana is closing 19 locations across Texas, according to the chain's parent company, Fiesta Restaurant Group. The closures are effective immediately.

One of the locations that is closing its doors is the Taco Cabana at 8620 Burnet Road. There are notices posted outside the location, telling customers about the closure. According to our partners at Austin360, the Burnet location is the only greater Austin area location that will be affected, as the majority of the 19 closures are coming from the Houston and Dallas-Fort Worth areas.

The restaurant owners said most employees at the closing locations have been offered jobs at other Taco Cabanas.

According to Austin360, this is the third Austin Taco Cabana location to close in recent years. The location on South Lamar closed and briefly became a Pollo Tropical, another restaurant chain owned by Fiesta. And the location on Martin Luther King Boulevard briefly became a Taco Ranch and will soon become a P. Terry's.
