Fort Worth restaurant moved using flat bed truck

A Fort Worth taco restaurant moved its location through the middle of town today.

Salsa Limon's historic cafe was placed on a flat bed and hauled to its new home in the river district. The 1947 building is one of only a handful of Streamline Moderne cafes left in the south.

Salsa Limon's co-founder said he's grown attached to the building and didn't feel right about leaving it behind.

“It’s a building with history, and it’s a building with personality and it’s a building that has a relationship with a lot of people in this town and it’s not easy and it should not just be erased no?" said Milo Ramirez.

With a new location also comes a new name -- the restaurant will be re-named Distrito, and should be open around the middle of next month.
