The Niagara Falls branch of Colosso Taco is opening another outlet in the Town of Niagara, with new offerings like a quesadilla burger and jumbo taco dog.
The new place will be located at 7101 Packard Road, in what was last a Dickie's Donuts.
The Colosso Taco at 2440 Pine Ave. will remain open as before, said owner Rami Abdellatif. The original Colosso Taco, opened in 1978 in the City of Tonawanda, has a different owner.
Another location will serve the customers who don't want to drive as far as Niagara Falls for a meal, Abdellatif said. "A lot of people don’t want to come downtown, it's too far," he said.
The new Town of Niagara location will offer the same menu of hard and soft tacos, subs, chicken fingers and quesadillas. Plus a few newcomers like low-carb wraps, extra large tacos, quesadilla burgers (Colosso seasoned beef patty inside tortillas with two kinds of cheese) and during the summer, a taco dog (jumbo dog, taco meat, cheese and onions).
The place can seat about 70, roomy enough to book birthday parties and other events. He's applying for a beer license, has a wifi network, and plans to offer free coffee for the first year, to welcome new guests.
The schedule will be six days a week for lunch and dinner, closed Sundays.
Abdellatif hopes to have the place open in November.
