The restaurant was unable to extend its lease at the 4720 South Congress Ave. location, according to the message from Chief Executive Officer Jhonatan Aldama.

The Kesos Taco House at 600 W. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. will remain open, and the restaurant will shift its focus to that location, which has been in business for more than a year. The restaurant will soon be selling beer and liquor and is working to extend its hours.

The restaurant thanked its customers for their support during the South Congress location’s three years in business:

“Thank you so much for all the love and support you have given us since we opened our doors back in 2014. Every single one of you has made our journey amazing, and we hope to continue seeing all of y’all at our other location, and at our future locations to come. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause for any of you taco loves, but rest assure Kesos Taco House will continue to grow, and we hope to relocate this original location in the near future. Also, stay tuned for other exciting news we have in store.”
