Casa de Tamales celebrated the opening of its new restaurant in Downtown Fresno today during a ribbon cutting ceremony with Mayor Ashley Swearengin.

The restaurant is now open Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and features the same menu of homemade tamales, tacos and sangria as the Tower District location, which opened in the summer.

“It’s been a lot of work to get the doors open here and we’ve had a lot of support in the community,” said Liz Sanchez, owner of Casa de Tamales. “This is our third time with a ribbon cutting ceremony in Fresno and I say, ‘third time’s the charm’ because this time we are joined by the Mayor.”

The 1,600-square-foot spot is located on the ground-floor of the T.W. Patterson Building along the Fulton Mall and Sanchez said she is excited to have a front-row seat to the changes coming to the neighborhood. 

“We believe in the revitalization that the Mayor has ignited here in Downtown and along the Fulton Mall and we want to be a part of that change,” she said.
