WICHITA — The party is heading south.
The La Fiesta Mexican restaurant group, which has locations in Salina and McPherson, is opening in the former El Rancho space near 47th Street South and Broadway.
Joel Santillan says he has a state liquor license secured but not one from the city.
"We didn't know it took so long for the city license," he says. "That's what's holding us back."
He hopes to be open by Oct. 27.
Santillan would like to do at least a couple more La Fiestas depending on how his Wichita business does.
"You never know."
