The Mecca has been in business in Dallas, TX since 1938, at its current location on Harry Hines since 1968 (see the Roadfood.com review). A new era for the diner begins next week, as The Mecca is moving to East Dallas. They'll be closing after business this Sunday, August 12th, and are hoping to be open at 5815 Live Oak Street on Friday, August 17th. There's talk of a price-rollback and retro uniforms for their Sunday sendoff.
Why the move? The building (which they don't own) is falling apart, and the neighborhood stinks, which is why they currently close at 2:30 p.m. daily. They will be offering dinner in the new restaurant, which manager Cheryl Hurt says is necessary to their financial health.
