Alfonso’s Taco Shop is coming to Owensboro and will be located in the former Penguin Point building off Frederica Street.
There are signs on the building that say “coming soon” and a Facebook Page has been created for the restaurant, but no opening date has been announced.
The Facebook Pages says Alfonso’s will offer “simple, easy, and tasty Mexican Food.”
According to Duncan CRE News, “Anne Marchal and Alan Cheek were able to sublease 830 Chuck Gray Court, Owensboro, KY to Alfonso’s Taco Shop. This 2,562-square-foot space, a former chicken and burger restaurant, came with a fully equipped kitchen and all dining furnishings.”
Penguin Point renovated the building in 2020 and closed just seven months after opening in May of 2021.
According to a Facebook post, Alfonso’s is currently hiring and is looking for cashiers and cooks. Those interested can send a message via Facebook.
