A new Nicha Comida Mexicana location is slated for 3331 Roosevelt Ave., on San Antonio's South Side.
A new 7,800-square-foot restaurant slated for construction at 3331 Roosevelt Ave. will replace homegrown Tex-Mex chain Nicha Comida Mexicana's original location, the San Antonio Business Journal reports.

The $4 million project — which includes a patio, drive-thru and adjacent parking area — would replace the restaurant's current Southside location at 3119 Roosevelt Ave. near Mission San Jose. According to the 40-year-old company's website, the 3119 Roosevelt is its original location, and the owners have since opened newer restaurants in Northwest San Antonio and Live Oak.

Approval for the new Southside concept was granted by the Historic and Design Review Commission earlier this year, the SABJ reports.

Work on the project was originally set to begin January of 2021. However, the completion date for the building is now set for Dec. 1, 2022.
