Poco Loco Has Closed

Content is from the site's archived pages and other sources.

Poco Loco has closed as those of us who used to frequent the restaurant can attest. Service and food sort of went down hill for the last couple of years which was unfortunate. A proposal to open a second restaurant at the former site of Poco Loco by the owners of the Kyma restaurant, located opposite the old Poco Loco site, ran into resident opposition at the Village of Roslyn’s Board of Zoning Appeals in April 2016. According to a news article, Jeff Blank, a partner in an Ameriprise Financial franchise in a building located next to the former Mexican restaurant at 1431 Old Northern Blvd., said another restaurant would exacerbate existing parking problems in the area. But renown NYC attorney Benjamin Pred thought this might have been a red herring, since other new restaurants in the area did not cause any such issue. Further studies were required to assess the traffic / parking issues the local residents were concerned about. Since I've moved to Manhattan I have lots of options for great Mexican fare and will not miss Poco Loco, but my folks who still live out on Long Island and remember the restaurant in its heyday do miss it.

Meanwhile peruse the menus and take a nostalgic trip back to when Poco Loco was the place to go on Long Island for tasty Mexican food.
