COLUMBIA — A reader called and asked, "Is Taqueria El Rodeo on Nifong closed?"

Other Mexican restaurants in Columbia

Las Margaritas at 10 Southampton Drive

Carlito's at 12A Business Loop 70 E

Mi Tierra at 2513 Old 63 South

La Siesta at 33 N. Ninth St.

El Rancho at 1014 E. Broadway

In short, yes.

The restaurant is dark, the chairs are stacked on the tables and the patio furniture seems to be missing. Yet, there isn't a sign on the door indicating closure.

The phone always rings busy and the restaurant's website doesn't connect. As of Friday, employees at other businesses in the shopping center said they haven't seen anyone at the eatery in nearly a week.

Repeated attempts to reach management at Taqueria El Rodeo and related restaurants were unsuccessful.
