"I was looking to get some breakfast tacos," Keona Dumas said.

"My friend is going to be pretty bummed out when I call her and tell her, 'no tacos for you.’”

The restaurant closed temporarily after fire alarms were triggered Sunday afternoon, Manager Alan Jordan said.

"We had a major electrical panel, that controls our HVAC system shortened out overnight for some weird reason," he said.

He doesn’t know how long repairs will take or when the restaurant will reopen.

"We're going to try to get open as quickly as possible and provide opportunities for our people to continue to draw their paycheck."
