A new restaurant called Fuego Picante is set to open in the property that housed Kansas City Smokehouse at 2367 Hempstead Turnpike.
According to the new eatery's Facebook page, the restaurant will serve Mexican cuisine.
Kansas City Smokehouse was open at the location for around five months before it closed. It replaced RUB BBQ, which was also open for less than a year. The property is adjacent to a Pearle Vision and a vacant building that once housed a Prudential Real Estate.
Jitin Choudhry, owner of the nearby Blimpie, said he wishes that the business has better luck than the others.
"I hope it works for them because about four restaurants opened there before," he said. "We really don't have any good Mexican food around here, so it should be nice."
