One new restaurant has opened at the Tucson Mall, and another is slated to open in August, although the owner may have to rename it before it does.
Shane’s Rib Shack—a national chain—opened its first Tucson store at the mall late last month, said Tucson Mall general manager Jeff Berger. The eatery serves ribs, chicken, sandwiches, salads, sides and desserts. Call 887-0790 to contact the Tucson store, or visit the website here.
Berger said the same person who opened Shane’s Rib Shack is also opening a place called Yogurt on Tap. It will specialize in self-serve yogurt and is expected to open in August.
While researching Yogurt on Tap, we found another store with the same name in Palm Springs, Calif., and the owner was quick to point out that she had nothing to do with the Tucson store. She was also quick to point out that the name is trademarked, and that she was quite interested in speaking with the owner of the Tucson store.
We let Berger know of her concerns, and he said he'd follow up on it.
