A Mexican restaurant will open in the former location of Buffalo Wild Wings in the Auburn area

Get ready for a new Mexican restaurant in the Auburn area.

Casa Azteca will open at 1624 Clark Street Road in space previously occupied by Buffalo Wild Wings, The Citizen reports.

This will be the third location for partners Fernando and Jose Reyes.

They currently operate Casa Mezcal: Flavors of Mexico in Bath, as well as Old Mexico Restaurant & Cantina in Ithaca.

The duo said it was all about opportunity. They told The Citizen that the lack of Mexican restaurants in the Finger Lakes region prompted them to pursue the Auburn location..

It is also a large space. Once the work is completed, the restaurant will be able to accommodate approximately 260 people. The partners expect it to take a few months.

The building is part of the Fingerlakes Crossing shopping center.
