The Greater East Dallas Chamber of Commerce will host a ribbon cutting for the new Manny's Uptown Tex-Mex Restaurante Lakewood on Thursday. October 20 at 5:00 p.m. Complimentary appetizers while supplies last.
The new restaurant takes over the former Rex's Seafood Restaurant at 6465 E. Mockingbird at Abrams Road.
It is a branch of Manny's Tex-Mex, the restaurant at Lemmon and Oak Grove avenues. Manny's is the concept founded by Manny Rios, who opened the original location in Uptown in 2005. Rios has family connections to some of the oldest Tex-Mex in town: Ana "Mama Mia" Enriquez, the matriarch behind Mia's Tex-Mex, which spawned much Tex-Mex restaurant action in Dallas, is his sister. He's also planning to open a branch in Southlake at Wyndham Plaza later this year. There's another Manny's Tex-Mex in Frisco, but it has a different owner.
Manny's will join other Mexican Restaurants at that intersection: Taco Joint, Meso Maya and ZuZu Handmade Mexican Food.
