Formerly known as Rex's Seafood

Formerly known as Rex’s Seafood

Located just south of our neighborhood, an area patronized by many Lake Highlands residents, Mockingbird and Abrams, has had a busy month.

Meso Maya opened its first East Dallas location on Aug. 15, and a few days later H-E-B announced it is buying the Minyard Sun Fresh Market at the southeast corner.

The news keeps coming for the busy crossroads.

According to new signage on the northeast corner, Manny’s Uptown Tex-Mex soon will replace the former Rex’s Seafood & Chop House, which has been vacant since May.

Angelica Castro, a manager at the Oak Grove Manny’s, confirmed the news, but couldn’t give a timeline for when the new restaurant will open.

Rex’s Seafood held the location for seven months before being locked out reportedly “because it has failed to pay rent.”
