After 63 years in business, Brownings Mexican Food has decided to start serving liquor. By way of explanation, owner Greg Phelan says, “Mexicans have jumped the border, and I’ve got to keep up with them. I plan to kick their butt in at least one thing — margaritas.” The venerable (at least in certain circles) Heights eatery has been making margaritas for years, but with some kind of malt liquor. We’re going to go ahead say their new ones will be better. Phelan says July 6 will be the first day serving.
After opening late last year, Montana Steaks on McCain Boulevard in North Little Rock has closed.
