Guaca Mole

by Robin F. » Fri May 07, 2021 2:43 pm

Hey - I just heard that Guaca-Mole is moving, but they couldn’t remember if it’s to Nulu or the Highlands. Anyone know? Even though I think they’ve done ok in the current spot, it is hidden and you have to be going there to see it. (Or going to McDonald’s).

It's moving to where Rye used to be -- 900 E. Market St. They filed construction plans with the city a few days ago.

That means three Ole restaurants will be located within easy walking distance! That makes it easier to manage and run, although I think the Rye space seems a lot smaller than Guac's current location?

Is it moving or they adding a 2nd location? A move that far would mean they were going to lose their present customer base (including us) and have to develop a completely new one.

I thought the same thing, but after seeing NULU this weekend I don't think they will have any problems. Every restaurant was packed. People were literally beating down the door at La Bogadita at 4:00 to get in. They were completely booked, we scored the last 2 bar seats.

That location is much more convenient to me, so, selfishly happy.
We ate at Chick'n Mi Friday night and they were busy. Went to Biscuit Belly in St. Matthews Sunday and there was a constant line until we were leaving about 1p. People are definitely eating out now. Yay, vaccinations!

I’m happy for their business, but sad too. The current location puts it in our regular rotation and we have so many memories of amazing meals. I wish them luck and hope for something good to go into that location....it’s been so many things!

My concern for the east end restaurants is growing. Springhurst is a chain graveyard, with many shuttered businesses in a row. (Steak n’ Shake, O’Charley’s, Payless shoes, Old Chicago) I guess they’re being replaced with new chains like Culver’s, Jaggers and the like.

Guaca Mole posted some renderings of what the NuLu location will look like. It doesn't say when it will open, but I suspect it will be a while. The renderings show an addition that they haven't even built yet.

Once Guaca Mole has moved, a Mexican restaurant called Tres Amigos will take over the Ormsby Station Road building. It appears to be the second location of a relatively new restaurant in Georgetown, Ky.

Hopefully this move will be delayed forever! We love going to the present location but the new location is way outside of our normal travel distances for dinner. Tres Amigos also appears to have a restaurant north of Cincinnati however by looking at their menu they don't look like there any different than all the other Americanized Mexican restaurants around town. To say that we are disappointed would be a major understatement. :(

They have done what appears to be most of the digging around the side and back. They started pouring some of the foundation on the side as well. So its going to be a while. But it looks like it will be well worth it.
