Camp Taco empire expands

Fans of Camp Taco who ventured into Homewood in recent days may have done a double take after seeing the logo hanging over a former Qdoba location.

It appears that the Five Points South-based restaurant is preparing to open a new location on Greensprings Hwy, one that gives them much more space and an outdoor patio so regulars have another option of where to enjoy their meals.

The Qdoba location it replaces was the last one operating in Alabama. The metro area had two locations as late as early last year. The other location, at 18th Street and 5th Ave. S., closed in early 2010 and was replaced that May by a Moe’s Southwest Grill.

There may be a few folks that are wondering where their downtown FedEx Kinko’s store is? Well, it’s just opened this morning at 312 20th Street North in Birmingham’s city center. For those new to the situation, they were the last tenants on the block that’s been slated for redevelopment by Corporate Realty as apartments.

Their former neighbors have all found new locations in the greater downtown area as well, including Reed Books on 2nd Avenue North, Scott’s Koneys (now on 21st Street South). And yes, we’d argue that the new payment center for the Birmingham Water Works on 1st Avenue North is at least pretty close to downtown (it’s even got drive-thru lanes).
