Gumbo at Mouth of the South. The Southern and Cajun restaurant is reopening in west Omaha.

With most fairs cancelled during the pandemic, you can hit up local restaurants and food trucks for equally tasty treats.

Mouth of the South, the popular Southern and Cajun restaurant that closed in 2019, is reopening, according to its website and Facebook page.

The new location is near 168th Street and West Center Road. Facebook posts don’t indicate when it will launch, saying only that it is coming soon.

Mouth of the South opened in the historic Florence neighborhood in 2014 and quickly gained a following for its authenticity.

After a fire in 2017, owner Ryan Ernst moved the restaurant to 7051 Ames Ave. in September 2018.

Just 15 months later, Ernst closed that location but said he would reopen at a later date.

Mouth of the South serves barbecue, steak, po’boys, burgers, gumbo, soups, salads and more. There will be patio seating at the new location, according to its website,
