Unfortunate news for Fort Worth's West 7th district: Andrew Zimmern-approved Revolver Taco Lounge is closing its doors.
Per a statement posted to the restaurant's Facebook page this morning:
Dear Amigos, we would like to inform you we will not be renewing our lease at the 2822 W. 7th Street location. Our lease ends June 30, 2015. Our landlord decided to sell the building without giving us an opportunity to buy the property. We all know W. 7th has changed dramatically during the course of these years and in a way we are happy to be part of it but we will not be part of the corporate monopoly money creates. We will not stay in an area where money will force you to eat what they want, drink what they want, we were not raised like that. We know this side of the street has been neglected by city officials because they have other plans for the area and those plans are all about money and not about the community. We love the people and we thank the people of Fort Worth for all the support. In the meantime come and enjoy Revolver, we have till the end of June to have fun at this location. For questions please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
However, all hope isn't lost: Owner Gino Rojas recently opened a second restaurant, Campestre Chula Vista, serving traditional Michoacan-style Mexican cuisine (plus $2 tacos on handmade tortillas) in a sprawling space complete with what is now arguably one of DFW's coolest patios.
