Five months after they closed their Evelyn Hills location, Osegueras is returning to Fayetteville in the space formerly occupied by Mariachi’s at 25 E. Center, just off the Fayetteville square.
According to Roger Valdez, general manager for the restaurant, Osegueras could open in the new location as early as next week.
“We want to open as soon as possible,” Valdez said. “We’ve had painters working, and our chef has been cleaning in the back. We are working to get some permits transferred, but we’re basically ready.”
Osegueras closed its Fayetteville location in Evelyn Hills back in August. According to an email to patrons sent by owner Jose Oseguera in November, the lease was up in the Evelyn Hills location, and Oseguera wanted to find a more visible location for the Fayetteville store.
Arkansas Business reported earlier this month that the restaurant closed due to a tenant/landlord dispute.
Osegueras has continued to operate locations in Springdale, Rogers, and Elkins. Valdez said they’ve been anxious to reopen in Fayetteville, though.
“We haven’t been in Fayetteville for a couple months. It’s kind of our home, and it’s where we want to be,” Valdez said. “We have a lot of loyal customers there.”
