For fans of authentic Mexican fare, Oak Cliff’s Mesa is an obvious choice. But for folks outside of Dallas proper, that drive can be a little taxing, especially when you’re fighting traffic to make that 7 p.m. reservation. Now, suburbanites won’t have to travel far to enjoy Chef Raul Reyes’ killer mole enchiladas.
A spokesperson for Mesa tells Eater that the Grapevine outpost of Mesa is set to debut at 1000 Texan Trail early next month. Construction on the space has been underway for the past several months, and now the restaurant is putting on the finishing touches before its grand opening.
The new Mesa outpost is three times the size of the original on Jefferson Ave, and Chef Raul Reyes himself is responsible for much of the building’s interior construction. Reyes even created a welded metal art wall sculpture that will occupy prime real estate in Mesa’s dining room.
Some folks may recall that Mesa was planning to open an outpost in Southlake back in 2013, but that deal ultimately fell through. The Grapevine location marks the first expansion for Mesa, though hopefully not its last.
Mesa Grapevine will officially open its doors on November 7.
