Homestate – Los Angeles’ popular Tex Mex restaurant – is opening its new location today in the former Lincoln Restaurant. Owner Briana Valdez took over the space earlier this year, and she’s already making breakfast tacos as you read this.
The location is slightly south of Woodbury near John Muir High School, and it’s a solid reconfiguration that already sports that Homestate style with a massive logo on the side of the building, Texas art, a full menu that includes on-site or on-site cocktails, and plenty of indoor and outdoor community seating.
For now, Homestate Pasadena’s hours of operation are 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily, with extended hours on the horizon.
