Moving into a prime, hard-to-miss location, Tex Mex & Tequila had expected to be up and running by last fall, but newly filed paperwork suggests it might be a while before the casual restaurant debuts on the Strip.

Moving into the vacant 17,000-square-foot Harley-Davidson Las Vegas Cafe, progress has been stalled by permissions and an upcoming design review to overhaul the two-story restaurant building, featuring a four-story garage to the rear.

Shuttered in 2016, following an impressive 19-year residency, a 63-foot high Harley-Davidson motorcycle mounted on the facade was removed and replaced with a temporary sign promising the bar and grill is coming soon.

The creators of the Red Palms Mediterranean restaurant and Smokey’s Bistro & Bar at the Hawaiian Marketplace will operate the Mexican restaurant, adding an upgraded patio and outdoor bar, remodeling the indoor dining space and lounge, and including a retail section.

New construction work has yet to begin and an updated arrival timetable has not been released.
