Cedar Hill residents John F. Conway Sr. and his granddaughter, Tianna Conway, recently opened TLC Tropical restaurant in Duncanville. The family-owned restaurant is located at 700 South Cockrell Hill Road in Duncanville.
Conway Sr. is also the owner of Tropical Moon Delight LLC, a margarita company based in Cedar Hill. The company services a number of Dallas and Tarrant County cities with frozen Margarita machines, beverages, and bartenders for special events.
Tianna said, “I have always wanted to open a business with my initials in the name. With my grandfather owning a Margarita business, when the opportunity came for us to help a family friend out with closing her daiquiri shop, we decided to open TLC Tropical.”
“We hope to be able to have a grand opening, and do a lot of things once COVID-19 restrictions are lifted,” Tianna said. “We want to have family movie nights, karaoke night, a DJ night, and a luau night with hula dancing and Hawaiian food when restaurant capacity goes to 100%.”
While the restaurant is open for both indoor dining and pickup or delivery service, the state’s regulations due to the pandemic have kept occupancy at 50%.
