Dallas doesn’t exactly need any more Tex-Mex restaurants, but a newcomer called Lupe Tortilla will soon bring its fajitas and tacos to the metroplex.

The restaurant will set up shop at 4535 Belt Line Road, bringing Lupe Tortilla to yet another queso-obsessed city, according to a press release. Founded in 1983 in Addicks, Texas, now a part of Houston, the restaurant operates locations across the state, including outposts in Austin, San Antonio, and several restaurants in its home city.

In Addison, Lupe Tortilla will occupy an 8,377 square foot space, complete with a patio and expansive dining room. The restaurant is known for its lime and pepper fajitas, which are served with corn tortillas that are made fresh for every order. Enchiladas, riffs on carne asada, grilled meats, and seafood dishes round out the offerings on the dinner menu, all of which can be paired with one of Lupe Tortilla’s margaritas.

Lupe Tortilla is expected to arrive in Addison in early 2019. Stay tuned for an official opening date.
