'Latino Waffle House'

Posted By on Thu, Sep 17, 2009 at 6:57 AM

News from Stephens Media on a new alcohol permit in NWA:

An all-night Springdale restaurant described as a “Waffle House for the Latino community” received approval today from the state Alcoholic Beverage Control Board to serve beer, though customers will not be able to order beer all night. ...

In a 3-2 vote, the board overturned ABC Director Michael Langley’s June 18 decision to deny a beer permit to Taqueria Los Primos on South Thompson Street in Springdale.

Bill Horton, attorney for the restaurant, told the board the taqueria is in a converted gas station and seats 30 people. Food is served all night, he said.

“Think of it like a Waffle House for the Latino community,” he said.

State law prohibits alcohol sales past 1 a.m. on weeknights and past midnight on Saturdays and Sundays in wet counties. Horton said the taqueria would follow the law.

As a confirmed taqueria junkie, I'd like to see one of these in LR.
