Mexican restaurant coming to south Sioux Falls

Sept. 3, 2019

A Mexican restaurant is the latest business to lease space near 85th Street and Minnesota Avenue.

Betito’s Mexican restaurant will be in a 2,500-square-foot end-cap space next to Orangetheory Fitness in one of the retail centers in front of Walmart.

It will offer a full Mexican menu and a drive-thru.

“We’re excited,” said Melissa Quiroz, who owns the business with her husband, Filadelfo.

The couple originally ran restaurants in Arizona but found the market saturated with them.

They moved to Omaha and then were going to co-own Abelardo’s Mexican Fresh in Sioux Falls. When that didn’t work out as planned, they decided to open their own location.

“It (the food) is really good. We’ve had really good results in Arizona, so hopefully we can bring it here,” Quiroz said.

Betito’s joins new businesses opening soon in the same area, including Code Ninjas, Solidcore and Silverstar Car Wash.

“We have so many great tenants currently at 85th and Minnesota and more to come at Liberty Square,” said Norm Drake, manager of 85th and Minnesota LLC and CEO of Legacy Developments and Consulting Co. LLC, who developed the project. “This site really has become the epicenter of the fastest-growing retail development in Sioux Falls.”

There continues to be strong interest in the remaining retail space, said Ryan Tysdal of Van Buskirk Cos., the leasing agent who brokered the deal.

“We’re seeing interest from both national and local retail tenants and are currently working on additional deals, with announcements expected in the coming months,” he said.

Betito’s hopes to be open before the end of the year.
