Fort Worth's favorite taqueria Salsa Limon is shutting down a location that has been a staple in its neighborhood for the past three years.

The restaurant is located at 3005 S. University Dr., which prior to Salsa Limon had been home to a short-timer called Sol de Luna and before that, Red Cactus.

According to a Facebook post, the Salsa Limon will close on August 12.

This location was the only one owned by a franchisee, and according to the Salsa Limon team, the franchisee decided to call it quits.

"We are sad to inform that our Universidad location, across the street from Texas Christian University, will no longer be a Salsa Limón," the restaurant said. "Unfortunately, the franchise at that location elected not to renew the franchise agreement so our last day will be August 12th."

Salsa Limón serves what it calls "un-apologetically Mexico City-style tacos," which are generous in size and include a range of fillings, from grilled steak and pork shoulder to garlic mashed potatoes and barbacoa. Its accolades include making the Texas Monthly list of best tacos in Texas.

Their other branches include one in Dallas and one they've nicknamed "Maggie," under construction on Magnolia Avenue.

In any case, the chain vows to return to the TCU area.

"Do not worry Horned Frogs Salsita fanatics, our relationship with this awesome community goes back a long time," they say. "We are working hard on some exciting opportunities for a new location in the TCU area. Thanks for your support, love y'all. Good luck going back to school and Go Frogs!!!"
