The popular Mexican restaurant El Sauz will open its second Long Beach location this month.

Initially, owner Javier Frias planned for a Nov. 9 soft opening but had to postpone pending a sign-off from the city. Frias said he hopes to open by mid-November.

The family-owned chain has been a staple in Long Beach’s Cambodia Town for decades, and the new location on Fourth Street will have exactly the same menu with a huge variety of seafood options like soup, fried fish and aguachile.

It will also serve tacos, wet burritos, tortas, sopas and more.

The restaurant will open at 8 a.m. to accommodate the breakfast crowd and will serve beer, wine and mimosas. When Frias bought the Anaheim Street location almost 15 years ago, he knew he wanted to expand the business.

When owner Javier Frias bought the Anaheim Street location almost 15 years ago, he knew he wanted to expand the business.

“He’s always out looking for locations. My mom gets mad at him sometimes,” Frias’ son, Brian, said. “He’s the hardest working guy I know.”

Frias began working at El Sauz around 25 years ago. It’s where he met his wife, Alicia. After closing up the restaurant late at night he would run to his second job delivering for Domino’s until 3 a.m.

“I would barely see him,” Alicia said.

Frias eventually left El Sauz to work as a truck driver for 12 years before coming back to buy the Cambodia Town location from its owners and then expanding the brand with El Sauz Jr in the city of Anaheim in 2018. Now Long Beach will get its second location across from Gusto Bread and Shady Groves Foods on Fourth Street. It was important to Frias that the location came with a small adjacent parking lot, which is much coveted on the busy street.

The restaurant has been under construction for over a year, Frias said. In 2020, A fire destroyed the building where a Filipino restaurant, Bebot Community Kitchen, previously operated. Now that he’s rebuilt the space from the ground up, the restaurant is — for the first time — exactly Frias’ vision.

“It’s basically the style of our house,” Brian said.

A beautiful mural of Long Beach is painted on the side wall next to the cashier, and sleek, tall, black booths give customers privacy from one another. Its design is modern with square lamps and an exposed ceiling.

The restaurant is wholly a family affair. Brian and his sister, Daisy, are helping get it up and running, especially with some staff being borrowed from the Cambodia Town location. While this is Frias’ third El Sauz location, he has other businesses too. He owns two car and auto shops and Long Beach Bionico serving delicious Mexican dessert near the Long Beach Rescue Mission.

“Once he sets his mind to something, he just keeps going,” Daisy said.

Frias wants people to leave his restaurants happy, fulfilled, and satisfied. Creating jobs in the community and expanding the business motivates him to keep going, he said.

The restaurant will be open until 10 p.m., but he hopes after the initial soft opening they can expand hours to serve a late-night crowd. El Sauz’s Cambodian Town location operates a taco stand until 3 a.m. and has become a hot spot after midnight.

A grand opening is planned for the coming weeks. Updates on that announcement can be found on the restaurant’s Facebook page.

El Sauz is at 2741 E. Fourth St.

Editor’s note: This story has been updated with new information about when El Sauz will open.

Amy Littman, Ivanka Priymak help Long Beach to a sweep in Nassau AA girls volleyball final

You wouldn’t think the Long Beach girls volleyball team was playing a team they lost to twice this season.

The No. 2 Marines defeated No.1 Mepham in a 3-0 sweep, 25-16, 25-18, 25-20, on Tuesday night at SUNY-Old Westbury in the Nassau Class AA finals.

“I’m so proud of this team,” coach Kerri Rehnback said. “This is amazing, and this was the goal we set for ourselves back in August.”

The Marines came out strong in the first set, leading 17-8, shocking the team that thought this would be another easy win. Mepham started to come back, but Long Beach kept its composure, and three aces in a row by senior Amy Littman secured the first set victory, 25-16.

“Our serving was on point today,” Littman said. “I felt like I’ve been in a little bit of a serving rut, but today something changed. I was super focused and felt more confident behind the service line.”

Their energy continued into the second set where the Marines led by nine at one point. Long Beach totaled 12 kills in the set; four of those from junior Ivanka Priymak who finished with 12.

“Ivanka was just lights out today,” Rehnback said.

Priymak credits her impressive performance to thinking about the bigger picture, and what she wanted to accomplish on the court today.

“I just kept my mind on pushing toward that main goal of earning a county championship for the first time in five years, and that really motivated me,” Priymak said.

Mepham fought back in the third set and had it tied at 7, but the Marines were too close to a victory to give up. They ended the set 25-20 and secured the county crown; Long Beach's first since 2018.

Mepham defeated Long Beach 3-2 in early October and 3-1 later in the season. What changed that led the team that lost twice to not only victory, but a sweep? Rehnback says the teamwork and energy.

“They [Mepham] caught us at a time when we weren’t our best, but I told the girls it’s very hard to beat a team three times,” Rehnback said. “Everybody chipped in what they needed to today and we really came out and brought an energy we haven't seen this season."

Heading into the final rounds it was anyone’s fight. The last round was razor close and at the end the bout ended in a draw. Scorecards read 76-76 across the board.

“I thought I edged him out,” said Lopez, “It was a close fight but definitely thought I won. I’m ready to run it back if he wants to. I’ll wait to see what that looks like. I just want to get back in the ring and get a victory.”

“I thought I did more damage and I’m not disappointed with my performance,” said Briceño. “I’m sure a rematch will be presented and I’m all for it. I’ll be back in the gym soon waiting for the call. I know I have some more fight left in my career and I’m willing to fight anyone.”

Ellis couldn’t recover and the bout was stopped at the 1:05 mark of round two.

The second televised fight of the night, a 4-round middleweight weight bout, saw Nelson Oliva (10-0, 8 KOs) of Los Angeles, CA, go the distance for only the second time in his career against Dario Guerrero-Meneses (3-7-1, 1 KO).

In round two, Silva landed a straight right hand that send Gonzalez to the canvas. Gonzalez was able to get up only to get dropped with another right hook to the head, this time ending the bout at the 2:05 mark of round two.
