A new Mexican restaurant is coming to Beaumont. Campestre Mexican Bar & Grill is opening up in the spot where Mark’s Feed Store was.

Mark’s Feed Store closed in January after about a year in business at 910 Beaumont Centre Parkway, a former Applebee’s location.

Campestre, which means “country” or “rural” in Spanish, could open before the end of the year, said Juan Aguirre, spokesman for the restaurant.

“We’re really excited to be in Lexington,” Aguirre said. “We have restaurants in Virginia and West Virginia and were looking for a great place to grow our business. I think we have something different to offer the community.”

The menu includes all the classics, the equivalent of Mexican comfort food, he said, and it will have a full bar, too. But look for some surprises, he said.

“We know what the trends are, and a lot of dishes are tasty and flavorful for the customers,” Aguirre said.

The restaurant location is undergoing about $200,000 in renovations, according to a building permit filed with the city.

When it’s finished, it will seat about 200 indoors. There are no plans for an outdoor patio, Aguirre said. It will be open for lunch and dinner with a full menu of Mexican favorites, including fajitas, burritos, enchiladas, quesadillas, nachos, salads and appetizers.
