Dallas--Romacorp Inc. is continuing to study a nearly year-old test of small Tony Roma's Express units in Venezuela and has plans to bring the fast-casual version of its rib restaurants to the United States. The scaled-down units feature walk-up counter service and a smaller menu, about one-tenth the size of the traditional Tony Roma's menu.

Tony Roma's is currently finalizing an agreement to open its first express location in the United States. -Nation's Restaurant News
