I'm 100 percent sure the guy runs on really great caffeine. How else can chef Johnny Hernandez keep opening La Gloria's and Fruterias inside airports across the land while adding two entirely new concepts to our fair city in 2017?

During the official grand opening of the Flats at Big Tex on Tuesday, Hernandez announced the upcoming opening of Villa Rica, a Mexican seafood joint, and Burgerteca, a Mexican-inspired burger joint. The eateries will take up some of the 6,400 square feet of the ground floor retail space the Flats at Big Tex holds.

The two eateries will follow the example of the original Fruteria, which is housed on the ground floor of the Steel House Lofts.
