Alamo Drafthouse shopping center will get a Fuzzy’s Taco Shop

Fuzzy’s Taco Shop has signed a lease at Creekside, future home of Alamo Drafthouse at Skillman and Abrams, and construction of their space is set to begin August 1st. They’ll be in 3,600 square feet on the Skillman corner, former home of Rent-A-Center (before that Blockbuster, before that TCBY).

Fuzzy’s, which originated with a taco shop near TCU and has grown to more than 100 corporate-owned and franchise locations in 9 states, consistently lands on foodie’s “best taco” lists. They serve fish tacos, nachos, burritos and queso in the Baja-Mexican style, with colorful décor, corrugated tin accents and sports on big screen TVS. Ordering is done at the counter, including beer and margaritas, and they open early for breakfast. You can view their full menu here.

The new Fuzzy’s will have a patio out front and is expected to open in late 2017 or early 2018.

“We’re really excited,” said Cory McCord, leasing director for Retail Plazas, Inc. which handles Creekside. “We are getting close to finishing the exterior work on both the main building and the outlying building, and we have 4 other deals working right now. Things are happening.”

    Well it is always nice to get the back story when this kind of thing happens. Not trying to be argumentative but this still does not address my comment in re their food. I wish the franchisee all the success possible. I WILL give them another try to see if they can get the little things right like food being HOT when received by the customer.

    The Mockingbird/Abrams location did not fail. It was actually quite successful yet Twinrose Properties, the owner of the shopping center at the time, would not renew their lease because of a deal they had with the new tenant Dream Cafe. In addition to the prime anchor space Fuzzy’s occupied, Dream Cafe also took in a large, adjoining storefront facing Mockingbird that had sat vacant for about four years. I am sure that if you did a little digging, you would find that the new Fuzzy’s location is probably owned by the same franchisee that established the one at Mock/Abrams.

    This is not good news.

    No to be Mr Negativity, but isn’t that the same chain that failed at Mockinbird and Abrams? I never was that impressed with their food to be honest.
