Prickly Pear Taqueria is no longer open for business in Midtown.

The Mexican eatery closed its doors for good last week, at 950 West Peachtree Street NW #220.

A representative for The Plaza Midtown, the mixed-use where the restaurant is housed, confirmed the news in a telephone interview with What Now Atlanta (WNA) Friday.

Prickly Pear Taqueria first opened in The Plaza Midtown in 2009.

The 2,567-square-foot space, sandwiched between Vibe Ride and Marlow’s Tavern, won’t sit dark long.

Domino’s Pizza is taking Prickly Pear Taqueria’s place, according to The Plaza Midtown representative.

Domino’s was in the space Friday making preparations for construction.

It’s unclear why Prickly Pear Taqueria closed its doors after ten years. The restaurant’s owners did not immediately respond to WNA’s request for comment.

It did fail its health inspection in May.

Prickly Pear Taqueria is the second restaurant in The Plaza Midtown to close its doors this year.

Kuroshio shuttered in February and is being replaced by Park 27 Korean BBQ.

  1. A friend worked there and they mistreated their employees terribly. They would steal tips and ‘adjust’ timesheets to reduce their labor costs. The kitchen was foul and they were caught watering down their tequila several times, although I think they were only prosecuted once for it.

    Sad to say, but we’re better off with Domino’s there.
