Oscar Rodriguez, general manager and co-owner of Mode X Tequila Bistro, said he wants to bring a unique, new concept to the Dayton area.

“When it comes to Mexican food in the area, there is no such thing. There is more of Tex-Mex,” Rodriguez said. “What we want to do is introduce real, authentic food with tequila.”

Rodriguez, who is from Mexico, created the menu from scratch. He said their authentic, classic recipes are elevated by cooking with tequila.

Mode X Tequila Bistro’s menu will include tapas, tacos birria, chile en nogada and much more.

Rodriguez said they will have a wide selection of tequila, as well as a full service bar. The bistro will also have 12 signature cocktails featuring tequila including the 1948. The 1948 is their version of a margarita that uses a secret ingredient from Mexico, he explained.

“This is not just another Mexican restaurant,” Rodriguez said. “We’re something unique. We want to really focus on tequila and food.”

He explained that when people think of a bar, they often think of drinks specifically. He said Mode X Tequila Bistro is a good hybrid between food and drinks.

Mode X Tequila Bistro will have indoor and outdoor seating with a fun, upbeat atmosphere.
