George Lopez is bringing his restaurant to Arizona.

The actor and comedian will open "George Lopez's Chingon Kitchen" at Vee Quiva Hotel & Casino in Laveen, Arizona "early" next year, the casino announced Monday.

"Whether you’re a fan of mine or a fan of Mexican food, the restaurant offers something for everyone in a fun and high-energy environment," Lopez said in a written statement.

It will be the second location for Lopez's restaurant. The first opened in 2017 at the San Manuel Casino in Highland, California.

The fast-casual restaurant is said to pay homage to Lopez's heritage.

The menu will feature scratch-made tacos, burritos, bowls, spit-fired al pastor, handmade guacamole, the release said. The bar is said to have a vast selection of Agave-based spirits.

It is slated to open in early 2019.
