Nicha’s Mexican Restaurant, whose owners opened the first Nicha’s eatery in 1977 on the south side, has opened its first north central San Antonio location.

Nicha’s opened on March 2 at 12403 West Ave. near Walker Ranch Park. The location has been home to different restaurants over the years, the last one being Tilo Tex Mex, which closed last fall.

Nicha’s offers homestyle traditional Mexican food, according to the Garcia family, who own and run the original south side Nicha’s and a second location on northwest Loop 410.

Restaurant representatives said the new Nicha’s has indoor and outdoor seating, and temporary hours of 6 a.m.-9 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday, 6 a.m.-11 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 8 a.m.-9 p.m. Sunday.
