Tony Roma’s just reopened its Laredo, Texas, location in the Mall del Norte after an extensive remodel.

The restaurant offers a fresh new look for the brand and it’s the first location the chain remodeled in the United States following the launch of Tony Roma’s new global prototype in Orlando, Fla.
