It's been a couple years since Motel 6 at 1025 E. Benson Highway has had a restaurant on site.
The last restaurant tenants were Irma and Mario Hinojosa, who operated their Benson-born Country Folks Restaurant on Tucson's south side for years before closing in 2014.
Yoly's Mexico Grande Restaurant officially opened Monday, although it's not open on Mondays. So its real first day in business will be Tuesday, April 26, serving up a breakfast menu of American and Mexican classics, from eggs and bacon to carne seca and eggs. Its lunch and dinner menu also crosses culinary borders, from the classic burger to Mexican combo plates featuring chile rellenos, tacos, tamales and burritos. Prices run $4.50 to $10 for breakfast; lunch/dinner starts at $7.95.
Yoly's is open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesdays through Sundays.
