Lime Fresh Mexican Grill to Replace Johnny Rockets in Winter Park Village

Written By Scott Joseph On February 11, 2011

John Kunkel, founder and CEO of Lime Fresh Mexican Grill, plans to bring his Tex-Mex style restaurant to Winter Park Village. Kunkel said he expected to sign a lease today to acquire the Johnny Rockets restaurant next to the shopping plaza’s movie complex. According to Kunkel, Johnny Rockets, the malt shop-style burger restaurant, will have 60 days to vacate the property; he estimated it would take another 60 days after that to convert the space to a Lime.

Lime Fresh Mexican Grill opened its first location outside of its South Florida home in Orlando in October of last year. Lime is a fast casual restaurant where guests order at a counter but have their selections brought to them at a table. The menu features tacos, burritos, quesadillas and other Tex-Mex standards.
