Amacate Tortilla Bar to open soon

A.J. Design & Construction is working on an $85,000 remodel of the old White Horse Bar & Grill at 7150 Eastex Freeway in Beaumont.

The newly remodeled, 3,700 square-foot restaurant will open in April as the Amacate Tortilla Bar, said Jon Hutcherson, operations director for Del Rio Properties LLC, owners of the restaurant.

“We are fast-casual, authentic tacos and enchiladas. You’ll go through the line and then we’ll bring your food to you within five minutes,” said Hutcherson, who added that Amacate in Spanish means, “love of avocado.”
