Farragut Mexican restaurant expected to open by November

Twenty-four-year-old Alberto Bedolla has never ventured into the restaurant business before, but believes it will be a successful venture.

Bedolla is owner and operator of Estelita’s Mexican Restaurant, located at 120 West End Ave., the former Tijuana Taco location.

“I’ve never run a restaurant before, but I think it’ll probably be a lot easier than what I’ve been doing,” he said in Spanish.

Bedolla, 24, has worked as a construction worker for the past several years.

“This is something new to me,” he said. “It’s going to be an interesting experience.”

The 3,500 square-foot restaurant should have room for about 200 people, he said. The fare is expected to consist of traditional Mexican food, such as enchiladas, tamales, rice, beans and a host of other items. Guests would be able to wash it down with ice cold beer.

“We haven’t really worked out all the details yet,” he said. “We’re not sure what the average cost of the meal should be. Probably around seven dollars.”

Bedolla said the Farragut area attracted his attention and he grew to like it.

“I really like the people in the area and look forward to joining them,” he said.

Estelita’s makes the second new Mexican restaurant to spring up in the West Knox area in as many months. Abuelos has grown to a thriving business in the Turkey Creek Lifestyle Center.
