Coming soon: Las Tias de Beto

Local foodie extraordinaire Andrew Gough alerted me to a new Mexican restaurant in progress (gracias), and after lunch today, I stopped by to check it out.

It’s called Las Tias de Beto Family Mexican Restaurant and is set to open in the middle of March right next door to the Juarez Bakery at 1068 N. Waco Ave.

Manuel Fernandez, who is one of the owners of Juarez, is a partner in the new restaurant, too. He said it will offer the standard fajita/taco/burrito options plus fish and steak dishes typical of Northern Mexico.

It’ll be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and will offer margaritas, beer and possibly wine. The dining room, which at the moment is a swirl of dry wall, cement and test-paint-splotches, will seat about 58.

I’ll let you know more as construction continues.
