Mandez's Seafood Bar & Grill will be opening a second location in Youngsville in early 2023.

The announcement was made by Youngsville Mayor Ken Ritter on his official Facebook page and locals are already excited to have Mandez's moving into the neighborhood.

Mandez's restaurant has been open at its Doucet Road location for five years, locally owned and operated by Jeff & Renee Hernandez. Their food and drinks have built a stellar reputation in that short time, so when locals heard they were expanding to Youngsville there was immediate excitement.

Mandez's will be moving into the old Bourée location which means they will be open a lot sooner than later—with a target date of February 2023.
