BIZ BUZZ BLOG – Restaurant news: Waffle House open, Patron’s fate unknown

By Biz Buzz Blog

The Waffle House on South Gloster Street in Tupelo has opened.

While it was scheduled to open in June, diners are now getting their smothered, covered and chunked fix and other favorites.

It’s located next to Walgreen’s, between Dossett Big 4 and the North Mississippi Medical Center.


Meanwhile, Patron Tex Mex restaurant has been closed for several weeks in the Tupelo Commons shopping center – which houses Ashley Furniture, Hancock Fabrics, Kyoto and others.

A sign posted on Patron’s front door says it is “temporarily closed” and to “come see us at Margarita’s Mexican Grill.”

A phone number for Patron has been disconnected.

Margarita’s is on North Gloster Street, in the shopping center with Dollar Tree, Bed Bath & Beyond and David’s Bridal.

The person who answered the phone at Margarita’s said he didn’t have any more information about the future of Patron.
