The shuttered former site of Roznovsky’s Hamburgers is now dark on the outside as well, as Tacos A Go-Go makes final preparations to dance into the space. A reader sends this shot of the current state of remodeling of the building at 3401 W. T.C. Jester (at the corner with 34th St.). The burger joint shut down last year a few months after proprietor Ron Roznovsky passed away in February.
This will be the third go-round for Tacos A Go-Go, which was previously thought to be headed for the former La Fendée’s spot on Westheimer as an addition to its Midtown and Heights locations — that spot got claimed by Cafe Layal instead, and the current location was announced in June. The strip center behind the once-and-future restaurant may be getting some other new neighbors in the coming year as well; the Leader reported at the end of last year that several spots were open for tenancy between 1 Stop Food Shop and Mirage Cabaret.
The Roznovsky’s spot was snapped up in April by Braun Enterprises, which previously bought up and redeveloped Harold’s in the Heights on 19th St. into a Torchy’s and the Heights General Store. Braun’s laundry list of other projects include recently opened Thai restaurant Foreign Correspondents and drive-thru Vietnamese spot Oui Banh Mi, headed for the former site of Lucky Burger’s barrel.
