Robert Braboy showed up at the store Friday afternoon for lunch and was disappointed to find it shut down.

“I’d usually get the burrito platter,” he said. “I was just getting to know it (the restaurant).”

Braboy said he appreciated supporting the family owned business.

“Our little bit of money doesn’t mean much to a big business but it means a lot to these little mom and pop shops,” he said.

I am surprised. They were always fairly busy when I went in. Best Pollo Asado Burritos anywhere, and prices were just great.

I'm very disappointed as well. I always felt it was the cleanest Mexican restaurant in town and the only one to serve my favorite chill verde burritos. I wish you well Pablo

I was just telling my friends at work about this place. They had the best carnitas. Too bad they couldn't make it. I try to eat a local IB eateries whenever possible. Gene Hillger

Try El Tapatio on Palm near 3rd if you are looking for some good Mexican food.

I hate to see a local business go under, I wish them well. Try El Cilantro near the back of the center at 13th & Palm for good carnitas.
