  • Fiesta Mexicana could open as soon as next week

    More than a year after vanishing in smoke and flames, a longtime downtown restaurant has risen from the ashes but in a different location.

    After burning to the ground in a March 2013 fire that also took down two other buildings in the 600 block of Main Street, Fiesta Mexicana is preparing to reopen very soon in a standalone building at 1815 Midland Trail.

    Except for some finishing touches, work on the restaurant is basically complete, so much so that it was ready for a final inspection yesterday.
