Heights Taco & Tamale Company, the new Tex-Mex restaurant from Yellow Rocket Concepts, the restaurant group behind Big Orange, Local Lime, Lost Fort Brewing and ZAZA, is planning to open February 2015. The restaurant is located at 5805 Kavanaugh Boulevard in the former home of Browning’s.

Scott McGehee of Yellow Rocket Concepts has described Heights Taco & Tamale Company as akin to a Tex-Mex restaurant one might find in San Antonio or Austin with a bit of homage to vintage Little Rock Tex-Mex such as Browning’s, Taco Kid and Blue Mesa, a restaurant co-owned by McGehee’s late father, Frank McGehee.
McGehee said he expects to get into the Heights’ kitchen next week to begin testing more than 90 recipes. He’ll split his time between that kitchen and the one in Lost Forty Brewing, which is scheduled to hold a soft opening in mid-December.
