After two years of searching for a restaurant space in Westchase, Alvaro Mellado finally found the perfect spot for Señor Tequila Mexican Grill.

This spring, Mellado's restaurant will take over the space formerly occupied by the Golf Club. With locations in Winter Springs and Carrollwood, this will be the company's third restaurant in Florida.

Mellado said there have been a lot of requests for him to open another location.

"We have a lot of people that are coming from Westchase to this restaurant in Carrollwood," Mellado said. "People tell us that we need to open in Westchase."

Señor Tequila Mexican Grill is a full-service restaurant that features an extensive menu of freshly made Mexican cuisine.

House specialties include a variety of fajitas, steaks, chicken, and seafood dishes. Customers can build their own combos with a choice of taco, enchilada, burrito, chile relleno, chalupa and flauta.

Vegetarian dishes are also available, as well as appetizers, soups, salads and a kids menu.

"Freshness, quality, and service," Mellado said. "That's what we focus on."

The new location will have outside seating for about 50 people, and there will be an inside bar area with televisions. Señor Tequila Mexican Grill features a large drink menu that offers margaritas, sangria, daiquiris and mojitos.

Señor Tequila Mexican Grill is at 11115 N Dale Mabry Highway, and is open daily at 11 a.m. The restaurant will be at 12950 Race Track Road, and is slated to open in April. For more information, call (813) 280-9955, or visit thesenortequila.com.
