Three weekend food events
Now open: Pho Cuong
Ruben’s expected to reopen by Oct. 15
Construction is progressing at the new Ruben’s Mexican Grill spot at 915 W. Douglas and the owners plan to open it by Oct. 15. Owners Ruben and Anita Acosta started their movefrom their longtime spot at the corner of Douglas and McLean back in April, hoping to be reopened within four weeks. But unexpected delays held things up. Anita said that the new restaurant’s dining room will be much nicer than the old one, which was in a former gas station.
The food will be the same, though they may pare the menu down a bit, she said. Customers have been calling frequently wanting to know when the restaurant will reopen, Anita said. She can’t wait for them to see the new and improved Ruben’s. “It’s going to be totally different,” she said. “It’s going to be really great.”
