The former Amigos/Kings Classic at 48th Street and Leighton Avenue, which closed last fall, appears to have a new tenant.

There is signage up on the building for Abelardo's Mexican Fresh, which is a small Omaha-based restaurant chain.

It sounds a bit similar to D'Leons, especially the fact that it keeps its drive-thru open 24 hours a day.

It has a Facebook page for the new Lincoln location, but the last time it was updated was Feb. 14. It appears the company hopes to open sometime this month.
