The Fresh Mex restaurant closed its Ellisville location this week. But for Mexican food enthusiasts, the nearby area has several Mexican options, including one restaurant that just opened last week.
Chevys Fresh Mex said "adios" to Ellisville patrons. The Chevys location, in the Dierbergs shopping plaza at Clarkson and Clayton Roads, closed its doors to operations this week, and appears to have all items marked for an auction.
