How long did it take Tempe Town to decide it wasn't in need of a restaurant concept where all the food items contain garlic and the shots number over one hundred?
Around seven months.
Garlic & Shots, located at 909 East Elliot Road (at the corner of Elliot and Rural), has closed for business.
The family-owned bar and restaurant was the first U.S. location of a small, European chain established in 1989 and with locations in London, Stockholm, and Palma.
