Marlo's Taco Shack?

https://twitter.com/fayflyer/status/685596219184295936




Yep! That's it. The last time I was there it had moved next door and they were using this (the original Casa Taco) as the drive thru window.

Marlo's was awesome!  Casa Taco moved to a different spot in the same shopping center.  At one time, like 2002 or so, there was an infamous bullet hole in the window. 

My friend used to get trashed and order Casa taco at 4 am.  By the time they delivered, he was passed out and unable to answer the door. Haha. Sorry, delivery dudes.

They eventually move to 6th st under a different name. Closed now. Any form of the old Casa Taco is now gone.

Longtime local restaurant Marlo’s Taco Shack recently closed its doors.

A post on the business’ Facebook page indicates that a family dispute and some issues with the landlord of the property are partly to blame for the closure.

That whole Mt. Comfort Rd. plaza needs to be redone. 

I'm not a commercial property genius but it seems like that would be a prime place for restaurants. 

Plenty of parking, along the path of game-day traffic, and easy access for students.


ADD: Mojo's and Lucky Luke's are fine dining establishments but they could redo the old buildings in bring in some new blood.

Casa Taco had the best hot sauce ever. I grew up in Fayetteville and know 100% what you mean.
Also King Pizza was some real good cheap pizza. Grew up on that stuff too.

Oh Casa Taco!!!  Was in school in late 90's-early 00's.  Only place I know where multiple friends got DWI's passing out in the drive-through and would let you stand on tables tops like it was no big deal.  Plus, it would take so long to get delivery it wasn't uncommon to pass out waiting.  Sometimes paying and all your buddies eating the food.  Ah, the memories.

I'm plying my Keystone Ice drunk brain from about 1992 but I seem to recall walking down from Hotz Hall for all-you-can-eat something or other at Casa Taco (renamed Taco Casito for a bit?) with some regularity.

Both of these responsible for the "freshman 20" pounds I put on in college back in early eighties. Late night munchies. King Pizza on Leverett had the first real video arcade I can remember too. Tron and space invaders. Those were the days...

There really isn't a good Mexican restaurant in Fayetteville.

La Huerta though is absolute dog food.

Uplift Education, based in Dallas, is an organization of college-prep charter schools. Most campuses, not all, are inner-city or in low-income areas. And they are amazing in their results getting kids to college. And staying in college. They're a client of mine, which is why I know about them. This was in today's news—

Also remember Fuzzy's real well. Was great friends with one of the cooks there named Sam. Cool dude.

The Tennessean ‏@Tennessean 25m25 minutes ago

#NashvilleGulch, Mt. Juliet getting upscale extended stay hotels http://tnne.ws/24374Na  via @getahn



Quote
The 120-room Staybridge Suites on the drawing board for land behind Adele's restaurant in the Gulch is one of two Nashville area hotels planned under the local debut of that upscale extended stay brand.

Construction is expected to start in spring 2017 on Staybridge Suites Nashville at 1212 McGavock St. with opening targeted for a year later. That property is owned by Rajesh Aggarwal, whose local holdings has included a pair of downtown area hotels and the inner core of Global Mall at the Crossings in Antioch.

Mt. Juliet's planning commission in December approved site plans for a Staybridge Suites off Belinda Parkway under that InterContinental Hotel Group brand. Construction should start this spring on that four-story, 100-room hotel, which will be owned by the family of Clarksville hotelier Kunal Shah.

"The city is very much growing well, so we want to cater to that," said Shah, adding that his hotel will be the first upscale extended stay hotel in Mt. Juliet.

The pair of planned Staybridge Suites openings reflect strong performance of the Nashville area's lodging market.

"Over the last three years, Nashville's RevPAR growth has outperformed the nation, which has put the city squarely in the crosshair of most developers in the U.S.," said Jan D. Freitag, senior vice president for lodging insights with Hendersonville-based industry tracker STR. "As occupancy and room rates continue to increase, I would expect continued active development for this city to continue."

By RevPAR, Freitag was referring to revenue per available room, which is a key measure of hotel performance.

Among the 25 largest U.S. lodging markets, Nashville last year finished behind only Phoenix and Tampa in growth in revenue per available room. STR's tracking shows an 11 percent RevPAR growth here to $93.11 versus a just over 6 percent average growth nationwide.

Meanwhile, Nashville's average daily room rate increased 8.7 percent to $126.67 at year's end. That was below the $147.30 average at year's end for the nation's 25 largest lodging markets and just above the $120 overall U.S. average.

Staybridge is a nice brand but I don't consider it upscale. But they have to categorize them somewhere in the mix. Nashville and central Tennessee is a hot market right now though. Memphis is also seeing an uptick in  development of lodging in west Tennessee.

I lived across the street from Fuzzy's back in the day.  Man, the paradise that a Beefeater, Casa Taco and a liquor store were all within stumbling distance was awesome.
