Las Tias de Beto scheduled to open Friday

Las Tias de Beto, a Mexican restaurant going in at 1064 N. Waco, right  next door to Juarez Bakery, is scheduled to open at 6:30 a.m. tomorrow.

The restaurant is owned by Manuel Fernandez, owner of Juarez, and a partner. It’ll offer the standard fajita/taco/burrito options plus fish and steak dishes typical of Northern Mexico. It also will serve breakfast dishes such as chorizo and eggs. Fernandez is working on getting a liquor license.

I stopped by this morning to take a peek. There’s a subtle sign on the door, but so far, no big outside signage. The biggest challenge for me with this place will be avoiding the Mexican pastries next door. There’s almost nothing I love more than Mexican pastries.

Hours for Las Tias de Beto will be 6:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. For more information, call  316-977-9336.
