Two restaurants say: ‘We’re still here’
Two Wichita restaurants are reminding longtime customers that they’re still in business. One is Ruben’s Mexican Grill at 915 W. Douglas. Owner Anita Acosta says her husband and the restaurant’s namesake, Ruben, has been battling health problems since January. Anita has struggled to run the place by herself, she said, but has never considered closing. She became concerned when her landlord called recently and said he’d heard a rumor she planned to close. That’s not the case, she said, and in fact, Ruben has been able to come back to work for a few hours at a time. The Acostas moved their Delano restaurant several blocks west on Douglas last year.
Meanwhile, DeFazio’s, the family-owned Italian restaurant at 2706 N. Amidon, also is reassuring customers that it’s still open. Roadwork that’s about to begin in front of the restaurant has caused its street sign to be removed, owners said. But they’re working on getting new signage up that will point the easiest way to the restaurant, which will remain open throughout the project. Managers say they’ll keep customers posted on the progress of the construction via their Facebook page.
