The tough economy has battered many restaurants’ bottom lines, but Wilmington’s Islands Fresh Mex Grill is experiencing growth, which come as a bonus to football fans this NFL season.
Islands owner Lucas Jones has added the space next door to Islands Fresh Mex Grill, 260 Racine Drive, as another dining room for daily customers and private parties. The restaurant’s bar serves both rooms simultaneously.
Especially popular is Islands daily 5-10 p.m. $1 taco special, Jones said. On Sunday, $1 draft beers sweeten the taco deal. Plus, Jones noted, Islands just added Direct TV’s NFL Sunday Ticket, allowing the restaurant to broadcast every Sunday NFL football game.
