SOUTH PORTLAND — El Rodeo Restaurant will take over the former Outback Steakhouse location on Western Avenue, marking the chain's first move into Maine.

Outback Steakhouse closed its only Maine location in July. Now, El Rodeo will bring its Mexican-themed restaurant to the location at 147 Western Ave., according to real estate firm CBRE | The Boulos Co, which represented the landlord.

El Rodeo is expected to open this spring, said CBRE | The Boulos Co.

El Rodeo, which operates a chain of eight casual dining Mexican restaurants in Pennsylvania, did not immediately return calls seeking comment.

The company opened its first restaurant in 1992, according to its website, and is "family owned and operated."
