Jalapeno's should open on Friday

A few weeks ago, I told you that Pimiento, the Mexican restaurant that opened last summer in the former Quizno's space at 738 N. Waco, had been sold to Hector Hernandez of McPherson.

Hernandez now has a new sign up at the restaurant, and he hopes to open it on Friday with its new name, Jalapeno’s.

He had a restaurant in Dodge City called Jalapeno’s from 2007 to 2010, and it was known for its giant hamburgers. Hernandez will offer the same menu here and also will serve tacos, burritos and other Mexican dishes.

The hours will be 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. Once open, Jalapeno’s can be reached by calling 316-425-5189.
