C. Señor, one of Dallas’s best destinations for a Cuban sandwich, has officially departed the Bishop Arts District.

A keen-eyed tipster spied the closure on Instagram, and sure enough, the walk-up sandwich and taco shop’s signage at 330 West Davis Street has been taken down. C. Señor made its Dallas debut in 2014, and has since been a stalwart of the city’s sandwich scene thanks to its hefty pork-laden Cubanos and crispy yucca fries. Before that, the space housed beloved taco stand El Padrino. Fortunately, it appears that not all hope is lost — according to CultureMap, owner Tony Alvarez has plans to relocate the stall to a new location in the neighborhood, though an official address has not been announced.

Additional digging indicates that the space will soon be occupied by an all-day breakfast spot called the Last Stand that will serve street food until late-night hours. An employee at Brass Tacks Barbershop tells Eater that the new spot is a project of Shawn and Michael White, brothers to Brandon White who owns the local chain Brass Tacks Barbershop.

UPDATE: Eater reached out to the duo for more details on what will become of the space formerly known as C. Señor and co-owner Shawn White had this to say about the incoming concept: “We should be open within the month with a built out patio. It’s going to be Southwest fare that serves up beer and cocktails with breakfast options all day.”
