No bueno: Las Tias De Beto is closed

Me, my sad shadow, and the bad news on the Las Tias De Beto door.

Las Tias De Beto, the delicious Mexican restaurant that opened in July, is closed. Sunday was its last day in business.

The restaurant, which was at 1064 N. Waco, right next to Juarez Bakery, belonged to Juarez owner Manuel Fernandez and a partner. It sold authentic tacos, tortas, enchiladas and more. Fans of the restaurant were bemoaning its closure this weekend on the restaurant’s Facebook page.

Fernandez didn’t want to go into too much detail, but he said there was a disagreement between the family members operating the restaurant about how it should be run. The disagreement couldn’t be worked out, he said, so he decided to close the restaurant.

Financial health was part of the issue too, he said. “How can I say this? You can’t spend $10 if you only make $6 or $7.”

Fernandez said he’s already had two or three offers from other entrepreneurs hoping to open a restaurant in the space, which is all brand new. But he’s going to need a while to consider those offers, he said.

He promised to update me when he made a decision.
