Named after the daughter of owners Mario and Elizabeth Cortez from Mexico, the new eatery located at 6646 Highway 51 North will feature authentic Mexican food.
General Manager of Paige Properties Eddie Guzman has been a part of the process of bringing Marluzby’s to it’s new location just south of Plantation Oaks.
The Cortez family will run and operate their business featuring authentic Mexican dishes like guacamole and Mexican spaghetti. Marluzby’s is occupying the location were former restaurants Cattleman Jack’s and Neighborhood Bistro called home.
Marluzby’s joins the Millington Mexican restaurant scene with Los Pilares, Francisco’s, Los Reyes and El Mezcal.
“There’s nothing wrong with our other partners in the Mexican restaurant industry in Millington,” Guzman said, “as you very well know we don’t have anything as far as the South end of 385 as for an eatery. Any type from fast food to fine dining, so they are on point in regards to starting a business here.”
On Thursday some Millington’s leaders and members of the Rotary Club got a buffet preview of Marluzby’s. Mayor Terry Jones, some aldermen and other dignitaries got a taste of the menu and gave positive reviews.
Monday’s grand opening featured members of the Chamber including President Charles Gulotta introducing the family and staff.
