Al's Pizza turns to Tacos
« on: December 11, 2012, 01:51:42 PM »
Pizza and tacos seems to be our M.O.

Quote
The owners of Al’s Pizza restaurants will open a taco-themed restaurant at the site of the recently-closed Sun Dog restaurant in Neptune Beach, the Jacksonville Business Journal reported Monday.

Is there a taco place in Neptune or Atlantic Beach? I'm sure there's not one in the Town Center now.
Do you believe that when the blue jay or another bird sings and the body is trembling, that is a signal that people are coming or something important is about to happen?

When you have a place that is as profitable as Taco Lu, you're going to get a few copycats.  Lu is serving a dollar's worth of ingredients for $5 and people love it.  Lola's tried their luck, Al's is trying theirs, and I'm sure we'll see a couple more before the new trend takes over. If we get a really successful and trendy noodle bowl place, you guys will soon be complaining about too many noodles in town.
