Taco Inn closed its location near 27th Street and Fletcher Avenue last week.

In a Facebook post, the company said its 15-year lease was up and it couldn't negotiate terms to continue at the spot. The post said it is looking for another location in north Lincoln.

Country Inn & Suites near 27th and Superior streets has apparently found a replacement for Beacon Hills restaurant, which closed last year.

According to both a liquor license application and a corporate filing with the Secretary of State's Office, it's something called JB's Burger Kitchen.

It appears to be something local, but I have been unable to find anything about it online, and the company that owns the hotel has not responded to requests for comment about it.

Big Red Restaurant & Sports Bar is building a second Lincoln location in the shopping center at 84th Street and Nebraska 2 that has Wal-Mart, Sam's Club and Menard's. It's supposed to be ready to open sometime in the summer.
