"Cabana Grill" Coming to Toco Hill
Addison, Texas-based Fiesta Restaurant Group Inc. is planning a second location of its newest concept, "Cabana Grill," at Toco Hill. The restaurant would be built on the wooded parcel in front of Kroger, adjacent to the AAA Auto Care Center. The parcel once had an old white house on it, but the house was demolished many years ago. The parcel is owned by Bennett-Johnson Properties, LLP, descendants of the woman who lived in the former house.
W. Clyde Shepherd III of Toco Hill Inc. has sought for many years to purchase the parcel and apparently his offer was lower than the family thinks the property is worth. Toco Hill Shopping Center was developed in 1956 by William Clyde Shepherd Jr. Shepherd III has reportedly refused to allow curb cuts from the parcel to Toco Hill Shopping Center, meaning that access to and from the restaurant would be exclusively via LaVista Road.
