FORT GEORGE — An Uptown Mexican restaurant that closed this summer may soon be serving up burgers instead of tacos.

Tequila Bar and Grill, at 4460 Broadway, closed last month after a little more than a year in business. A new sign posted on the storefront announced that a gastropub called Angry Burger would open in the space.

Tequila was owned by Angel Tejada, who has also been involved in other Uptown venues including Altus Café and Mia Sushi and Steakhouse, according to records from the state Liquor Authority.

It was not clear if he owns Angry Burger or if the business would open under new ownership.

Tejada could not be reached at Mia Sushi, and an employee at the recently reopened Altus Café said he was not longer involved with the restaurant.

The sign at 4460 Broadway did not say when Angry Burger would open.

Burger joints have become more popular Uptown in the last several years.

Locksmith Wine and Burger Bar opened at 4463 Broadway in 2009, followed by Burger Heights at 177 Wadsworth Ave. and Rebounds at 5025 Broadway, both of which debuted last summer.
