It’s almost two months later than she planned, but Maria Pinales finally got her second Tacos Lopez open on Friday.

“Just a big mess with the hood” kept her from opening in early November as planned.

Longtime fans of her restaurant at 795 N. West St. have been calling, e-mailing and stopping by 2110 N. Maize Road hoping it would be open.

In fact, during her final inspections on Friday, Pinales says there were customers sitting in the dining room waiting for a health department employee to finish.

The traditional Mexican restaurant, which is in the same center where AAA is just south of 21st and Maize Road, has a drive-through and seating for about 40.

There’s no website for Tacos Lopez, but the phone number is (316) 260-5949.
