MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - The Memphis restaurant community banded together to help a fellow eatery in need.
Popular restaurant Maciel's on South Main has been closed since its roof caved in a week ago.
Sunday night, Rizzo's Diner and City Tasting Tours teamed up to help Maciel's hold a pop-up taco bar.
All of the proceeds went toward helping Maciel's reopen.
Rizzo's owner and chef Michael Patrick said he can relate to their situation as a fellow small business owner.
"I've known Manuel since he opened, been a regular at his restaurant," Patrick said. "We're both mom and pop operations, so I know what it feels like when the bottom drops out, you know."
Patrick said he hopes this event gives Maciel's some sustainability for at least a few weeks.
A GoFundMe account has also been set up to help Maciel's.
