Permits have been issued for the third De Leon’s Taco & Bar in Spokane.

The new location, anticipated to open in early 2019, will be at at 1801 N. Hamilton St. in the Logan neighborhood near Gonzaga University. Permits show $300,000 in work.

The 4,000-square-foot building at the corner of East Nora Avenue recently housed Chapala Mexican Food. Eric and Anthony De Leon purchased the property in March for $550,000.

Though De Leon Foods has owned two local grocery stores specializing in Mexican fare, ingredients and products for years, it opened its first taco bar in May 2017 near Whitworth University at 10208 N. Division St.

This year, it opened a second taco bar on the South Hill, 2718 E. 57th Ave., near South Regal Street.

The eateries serve De Leon’s tacos, burritos and stewed meats for lunch and dinner. On weekends, menudo and pozole are available.

Permits do not list a general contractor.
