On Wednesday Guerra’s Krazy Taco reopened for evening carryout.

Owner Felix Guerra III said he decided to close the weekend before Gov. Mike DeWine announced the order to close restaurants to in-house patrons because he wanted to “get in front of it and eliminate any problems.”

He explained that Guerra's Krazy Taco has two employees that are considered higher-risk for COVID-19.

“For me, my employees’ safety is worth every penny,” Guerra said. ”They are like family to me.”

Reopening for evening carryout was a way for Guerra’s Krazy Taco to get back “in the groove” smoothly without having a rush of people.

Guerra’s Krazy Taco, located at 229 N. Belmont Ave., is open 4 to 8 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday. For more information, search for Guerra’s Krazy Taco on Facebook or call 937-325-0799.
