Has Corner Tex-Mix Closed on S. Walter Reed Drive?

Update at 11:20 p.m. on 1/12/16 — It’s possible that reports of The Corner Tex-Mix’s demise were premature. Another tipster says it was open Tuesday evening. However, Google’s listing for the business says it is “permanently closed.” The tipster notes that the restaurant seems to be keeping “odd hours.”

The restaurant Bermuda Triangle that is the intersection of S. Glebe Road and Walter Reed Drive may have claimed another victim.

The Corner Tex-Mix, at 1621 S. Walter Reed Drive in Nauck, has apparently closed, at least temporarily.

“I have driven by the restaurant about 5 times in the past six or so weeks anywhere between 5 p.m. and 9 p.m. and the place is completely dark and the parking lot/patio is completely empty,” a tipster told us last week.

The restaurant opened last spring, promising a mix of Latin American, North American and Mediterranean cuisines. Online reviews suggest that diners were not satisfied with the quality of the food compared to other options along nearby Columbia Pike.

The stand-alone building at 1621 S. Walter Reed has housed a succession of failed restaurants including, in just the past four years, Las Delicias Restaurante and El Manatial III.
