1st Restaurant by Ford that burned a few years ago

I can not remember the name of the place but everyone asked when they were going to re-open. It is on 1st across from La Azteca Tortillaria. I was getting some hand made flour and corn tortillas and when I was leaving I noticed the building / restaurant across the street was fixed and had a fresh coat of paint. I hope the old place comes back. Sorry I can not remember the name, I never got a chance to go.

      Looks like the damage is fixed and a fresh coat of paint. Could not see inside.

        Yup! I did the same thing last weekend and things look incredibly promising, new paint, new fixtures, windows uncovered but after ALL these years, I'm NOT getting my hopes up until I'm sitting in that patio again!
