Las Mesas Mexican Grill is opening soon in Armuchee. The business, believed to be back by several area chefs, is quickly coming together with crews spotted both inside and outside in recent weeks.
The site, off Martha Berry, was home to Chuck Patel’s WOW Cafe & Wingery for a decade. Patel chose not to renew the franchise agreement and the site later was leased by La Conquista Mexican Grill, which had been based further north on the highway. It closed around a year ago.
You can track the restaurant on its new Facebook page.
In late September, the folks behind the Krab Kween food truck announced they were pausing for a few months, citing pandemic concerns, approaching winter and other factors. They vowed to be back this spring and that vow goes formal with a grand reopening on Saturday, April 17, from 12:30-1 p.m. at 1444 Joe Frank Harris Parkway.
The husband-and-wife team blend Louisiana and Florida seafood favorites. Past specials have included creole dishes, soul food and others. Adding to the reopening: Blue Velvet Cupcakes.

The Krab Kween food truck was very popular in Cartersville prior to the temporary closing. Mobile seafood, you ask? It has worked before: Just ask the folks behind Crawdaddys, which evolved into brick-and-mortar at 239 Broad St. The Bradys started with a mobile unit that became the region’s most popular food truck.
The Rome Floyd County Development Authority is scheduled to meet Tuesday, April 20, at 10 a.m. at 800 Broad St., Suite 102.
