El Alteno Mexican Restaurant On Tom Austin Hwy next to the Catfish House by WalMart in Springfield, TN has been Seized by the Tennessee Department of Revenue due to non payment of taxes, according to a sign posted in their window today.
There is a Black Hummer blocking the driveway and the doors have been chained closed. The restaurant appears to be deserted.
We reached out to the Nashville office of the Tennessee Department of Revenue and spoke to their press agent, we were told that due to confidentiality laws they can not discuss the case.
The popular restaurant could be closed for a day, a week or a month, it all depends on the circumstances. Smokey will keep an eye on it and if any new developments are presented to us we will bring them to you.
El Alteno has been a popular spot in Springfield for many years, we’ll just hope it’s a technical accounting glitch so the restaurant can open back up as soon as possible.
