MooSa’s, a fast food concept serving burgers and custard, has closed its Near West Side location. Opened in 2021, the restaurant was located at 405 N. 27th St., inside of the BP gas station at the corner W. St. Paul Ave. and N. 27th St.

As MooSa’s exits, another business is already slated to take its place. Amandeep Dhaliwal and Bhinderpal Singh would open Milwaukee Fish & Chicken at the address, with plans to serve hot meals for carryout only.

On the license application, the owners noted that they have previous experience from owning a Subway restaurant.

A menu for the restaurant features a variety of classic fast food fare including burgers, chicken sandwiches, french fries, chicken wings, tenders, nuggets and fish fry. The menu shows the restaurant would also sell fried okra, fried mushrooms, biscuits, salads, ice cream and shakes.

Milwaukee Fish & Chicken could open as soon as next month. The restaurant plans to operate daily from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Prior to MooSa’s the 1,848-square-foot restaurant space was home to Chester’s fried chicken, another fast food restaurant.

The Near West Side MooSa’s was the second location for the restaurant, which also operates a seasonal stand at 2272 N. Lincoln Memorial Dr., at Bradford Beach.

Nasser Musa was the owner of MooSa’s on 27th Street. His brother, Alaa, owns the other location. Musa also opened Casablanca at 728 E. Brady St. with his brothers in 2005. A second location opened in Brookfield in 2018. A liquor license indicates his brother, Alaa, is the sole owner of the Brady Street location today.

According to Musa, the lakefront location for MooSa’s is preparing to reopen for the season, with plans to officially launch on Friday, May 5.

The owners of Milwaukee Fish & Chicken did not respond to a request for comment by the time of publication.
