Why be normal when you can B Loco?
That’s the question the owner of Carrollton’s newest restaurant, called B Loco, is asking.
“We just kind of grabbed the idea and it has taken off,” said owner Deanna Glecker. “We now have t-shirts with the logo on them that we offer for sale.”
The Mexican Restaurant is located at 715 Canton Rd., Carrollton in the plaza across from McDonalds. Burritos, quesadillas, tacos and more are on the menu and served up for take-out or dine-in orders. Glecker said the lunch menu is offered all day (from 11 a.m. until 9 p.m.) and a sit down menu is offered in the evenings. Seating is available inside for about 30 people and tables are located outside the entrance for customer convenience. Orders can be called ahead for pickup by calling 330-476-6138 and delivery is available on a limited basis to local businesses.
On Friday nights of home football games, B Loco is open until midnight and on Sunday the restaurant closes at 8 p.m.
“We plan to begin offering soups during the winter months,” Glecker noted. “The loco pretzel, chips and salsa and deep fried ice cream have quickly become favorites of our customers.”
For Deanna , owning a restaurant has been a lifelong dream.
“This is something I’ve always wanted to do,” she acknowledged. “I have a background in business and chips and salsa (with a margarita) are my favorite foods. When the opportunity presented itself, I found some authentic Mexican recipes and the business flourished.
B Loco is the second restaurant in the chain. A new one is under construction on the campus of University of Akron. The other is located in Jackson Township.
Glecker noted she was immediately impressed with Carroll County and its residents and is in the process of moving to Carrollton.
