After 5½ years of serving up rave-worthy chips, salsa and soup at Carmen’s Casa Nachos, Carmen Fraser is closing shop.
She said the last day of business at the restaurant at 350 W. Grant Line Road will be Oct. 31. The eatery has operated in Tracy under different owners for about 25 years, Fraser said.
Fraser said that for the past year, she has been running promotions to try to drum up business, and a reduction in rent a couple of years back helped her stay in business. But she said construction on Grant Line Road, which she said negatively affected business, and a failure to negotiate a lowered rent made the decision to close necessary.
The city construction to replace utilities under Grant Line, she said, “has just about killed it.”
Fans of her chips, soup and salsa, however, need not despair. Fraser said she received so many complaints that her specialties would no longer be available that she decided to continue catering those items.
Those interested in Fraser’s specialties should call 833-0807, even after Casa Nachos closes.
