43. Tepeyolot Cerveceria
Luis Melgarejo is in the process of opening an Aztec-inspired themed craft brewery called Tepeyolot Cerveceria in San Marco. Tepeyolot will lease the entire 5,407-square foot building at 2136 Kings Avenue from owner TC Jax Holdings. It will be a brewpub with seating for 199, and Melgarejo plans to focus as much on the food as the drinks. The menu will feature Mexican light fare including tacos, sweet tamales, Mexican street corn, churros, and chips and salsa.
