Fans of the authentic Mexican cuisine served up at La Flama's Moline location might be disappointed to see a note on the door after Saturday, their last day of operation.

La Flama

The note explains that they are closing the restaurant that has been a downtown Moline staple for a decade, and opening up in Davenport, at Riverview Plaza, 114 Myrtle St., near Modern Woodman Ballpark.

Owners Martin, Alex and Juan could be seen daily at the family business, and more recently at the Davenport Farmers Market and 'La Flama on Wheels' truck business.

We are looking forward to the new venture, and the food! See you at the new location in July! Their note to customers is below.

To Our Valued Customers –
We sincerely want to thank all of our loyal customers for supporting us the past 12 years. We are excited to announce to you that we are expanding and opening a new La Flama location in Davenport, IA. Our newest adventure will be located at the new Riverview Plaza, 114 Myrtle St., Davenport, IA. We look forward to being able to provide you with our Great Mexican Taste at our new location starting in July, 2016.

Over the years our families have grown and our personal and business needs have changed. With the growth of our families comes the need for a change in the format of our business. Along with the need for change we have not been able to come to a mutual agreement with our current landlord. With that being said, we will be closing our current downtown Moline location on June 18th, 2016. We are actively seeking a suitable downtown property to continue to service our valued customers. In the meantime, you can continue to get your fix for La Flama at our La Flama on Wheels Taco Truck. La Flama on Wheels is located Tuesdays – Thursdays, in the parking lot of K&K Hardware Store, 1818 Grant St., Bettendorf, IA., as well as at the Freight House Farmer’s Market on Saturdays. Please check out our Facebook page, as we are in the process of adding more trucks and locations.

Once again, we are very grateful to everyone who has supported us throughout the years and we are excited to be able to continue serving you at our new locations.

Martin, Alex, Juan
