When a restaurant is dark and deserted during the dinner hour, it’s usually a bad sign.

But fans of two dark west-side Wichita restaurants can rest assured that they will reopen.

Mexico Viejo, the Mexican restaurant that took over the La Fiesta spot at 6920 W. 21st St. a year ago, was closed on Wednesday night and will remain closed until Tuesday. The reason for the closing is some broken pipes in the kitchen, a manager said, and the repairs will take several days. Normal hours should resume on Tuesday, he said.

Also, When Pigs Fly, the barbecue restaurant at 7011 W. Central, also is closed while the owners take a vacation. The restaurant has been closed since earlier this week and also will resume its normal hours on Tuesday.
