Restaurant talk: Ojeda’s coming to Jefferson soon

Ojeda’s, the popular Tex-Mex chain, is returning to Oak Cliff. Sisters Esther Mendez and Carmen Ojeda are opening the new restaurant at Jefferson and Polk. They are two of the nine Ojeda siblings whose parents opened the first Ojeda’s on Maple Avenue 40 years ago. And they expect to open the newest Ojeda’s by Nov. 15.

"It’s usually our brothers who open new restaurants," Ojeda says. "But we thought, it’s time for the girls to do one."

Mendez had an Ojeda’s restaurant in Oak Cliff before, but she closed it several years ago to focus on a new Ojeda’s in DeSoto. "She really misses Oak Cliff," Ojeda says. "So she wanted to come back, and I said I would go in with her."

The Ojeda’s Oak Cliff likely will have a smaller menu than the Maple store, which seats 300 people. The new store will seat about 80, Ojeda says. "We’ve already been hearing from Oak Cliff customers who come to the store on Maple," she says. "They’re already excited."
