Tex-Mex ‘vil­lage’ va­cated af­ter 8 decades

Austin American-Statesman - - BUSINESS & PERSONAL FINANCE -

Af­ter 79 years, Jaime’s Span­ish Vil­lage served its last lunch crowd Fri­day. The res­tau­rant at 802 Red River St. was clos­ing be­cause it lost its lease. Owner Char­lie Tames, right, said the fur­ni­ture and other items will be re­moved to­day. He said the art and mem­o­ra­bilia will be stored for use in a pos­si­ble fu­ture ven­ture. Tames’ late un­cle, Jaime Tames, bought the res­tau­rant about 40 years ago. Char­lie Tames said he worked as a bus­boy at the res­tau­rant as a teenager when he first came to the U.S. from Mex­ico.
