La Michoacana Meat Market bought the old Kip’s Big Boy restaurant at 2600 S. Zang, which is being demolished for a new store.

The former restaurant, which had been used as an event center for the past several years, was built in 1959. It is adjacent to another grocery, Ann’s Health Food Center and Market.

Houston-based La Michoacana has at least two other stores in our neighborhood, one on Jefferson at Vernon and one on Westmoreland near Fort Worth Avenue.

The building, which backs up to Interstate 35, is an example of mid-20th Century roadside architecture, which the Old Oak Cliff Conservation League included on its list of Oak Cliff architecture at risk in 2012.
