Former Chuy’s Panaderia gets a new name

Jesus Guevara opened his bakery and restaurant, Chuy’s Panaderia, on Research Boulevard in 2009. But the name of his neighborhood joint that has expanded to include a location at 8701 E. William Cannon Dr. landed Guevara into some problematic waters with the more well-known Chuy’s; so 10 months ago he removed signage from the two restaurants. They’ve operated without a name since then, but on Friday July 19, Guevara’s restaurants, which serve more than a dozen tortas (try the torta Cubana, with breaded steak, ham, sausage and cheese plus jalapeños, beans and chipotle mayonnaise), will officially change their names to Mi Tradicion. Same menu, same Guevara, new name. Mi Tradicion locations are at 8716 Research Blvd. Suite 290 (374-9910), and 8701 E. William Cannon Drive, Suite 125 (445-9128).
