YAKIMA, Wash. -- A popular Mexican restaurant that had to close due to a fire two months ago has reopened in a new location.

Mercedes & Family has opened at 2201-A W. Lincoln Ave. The restaurant was forced to close in July due to a kitchen fire at its previous location at South 56th Avenue and Tieton Drive.

Prior to Mercedes & Family, several restaurants had been at the building on West Lincoln Avenue. Sharky's Pizza Shack closed in 2017 after five years, and Anita's Restaurant was there for a few months before closing a few weeks ago.
