1. Tepeyolot Cerveceria 2130 Kings Avenue

Tepeyolot Cerveceria, an Aztec-inspired brewpub serving Mexican food, is proposed for 2130 Kings Avenue. According to owner Luis Melgarejo, the brewpub will seat 199, serve Mexican-style lagers, IPAs, stouts, ales, ciders, wine and possibly sours. Street corn, tamales, churros, tacos, chips and salsa and quesadillas will also be on the menu. The brewpub will occupy a 5,488 square foot structure that was built in 1953. The building is one of the last remaining from the areas days as a San Marco Square-style streetcar anchored district called Times Square. Times Square was largely razed for the construction and additional widenings of I-95 decades ago.
