Longboards Taps Out
Longboards Tap & Taco is the first casualty of the Mexican restaurant wars on East Blvd. They shut the doors this past week even before newcomer Tijuana Flats even opened. What went wrong? I don’t think you can open a restaurant in Charlotte without one parking space? Maybe you don’t need parking in New York City to run a successful restaurant but here you are dooming yourself to failure. Throw in Longboards mediocre food and you have a recipe for disaster. I drove by Longboards on Saturday and it looked like buzzards had picked the place clean, even the booths are gone. We give credit to groups that take it upon themselves to try to open restaurants and feel bad when they don’t make it. Longboards tried and failed.
