If you were saddened by the closure of the original Mecca on Harry Hines, now is your chance to bring on a smile. The new Mecca will swing open its doors with little fanfare at 4pm today. You will find The Mecca in its new digs at 5815 Live Oak in East Dallas.
This is not the first move for the iconic restaurant. The first location was opened in 1938 and eventually moved to its location you might be most familiar with on Harry Hines in a house where the sisters who ran the restaurant actually resided just above the dining room.
The original sign made the move and stands as a beacon for those wanting breakfast any time during the day or night.
