Taco Town to open in former Taco Tico space near Central and Greenwich

WICHITA — Taco Tico may be gone from the Central and Greenwich area, but Taco Town is moving in to its former space at 11333 E. Central.

Larry and Rosemarie Ross are relocating the restaurant from Scottsbluff, Neb.

Larry Ross says his in-laws opened the business, and he and his wife have been running it for almost two decades.

They're relocating to Wichita because their daughter, Amber Hehnke, and her family are here.

"I know I've got to start all over," Ross says.

He hopes to open the restaurant by early July, but Ross says he’s encountering more red tape than he thought he would.

"I didn't realize it was such a hassle,” he says of opening a restaurant in Wichita.

Taco Town will seat about 70.

Don Piros with Landmark Commercial Real Estate handled the deal.

Ross says the restaurant will serve homemade food but no alcohol.

"I believe in my mother-in-law's philosophy," Ross says. "If you want a drink, go out to a bar."
