If there’s a cuisine that Dallas has in abundance, it’s definitely Mexican cuisines of all stripes. From cheesy Tex-Mex to authentic Oaxacan fare, there’s already plenty of options inside the city limits for a killer bowl of queso or sizzling platter of fajitas. Now, two familiar concepts plan to bring even more Mexican goodness to Dallas proper.

CultureMap reports that El Bolero will open its second Dallas outpost at 2650 N. Fitzhugh in Uptown later this year. The self-described “authentic, regional” Mexican restaurant opened its first location in the Design District in Spring 2015, and even boasted Chef John Tesar as its chef for a few months.

Also in the works is an outpost of Fort Worth institution Salsa Limon, which uprooted and moved its original location across town to the River District last year. The fifth outpost of this Mexico City-style eatery is set to make its debut in Downtown Dallas in February in the newly-renovated Mayflower Building at 411 N. Akard.

Whatever else 2017 has in store for Dallas’ restaurant scene, one thing is for sure: the tacos are going to be excellent.
