Primo’s in Uptown closed
It's not likely that it'll reopen, said a manager.
DALLAS Primo's Tex-Mex Grille, known for its $2 margarita Tuesdays and 30-and-under clientele, is shuttered on McKinney Avenue in Uptown Dallas, confirmed a manager at the sister location on Lake Ray Hubbard in Garland.
It was closed temporarily on Friday, December 13, after a Dallas County constable delivered a writ of execution from the district court, confirmed by Assistant Chief Deputy Constable Frank Bromley last week. Primo's reopened over the weekend, but today we learned it's locked up -- with no intention to reopen, said Chris Abshire, manager at Primo's in Garland. He wouldn't give a reason for the closure.
The constable has not returned calls.
According to a lawsuit filed October 23, Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI) is suing the restaurant for 11 counts of copyright infringement on September 20, 2011, "based upon Defendants' unauthorized public performance of musical compositions from the BMI Repetoire."
A Dallas Morning News story from 2008 calls Primo's "an Uptown institution."
