Adios Acapulco, Hello Chipotle!

Acapulco had a good run here in Monrovia.  Prior to Acapulco, it was Garcia’s Mexican restaurant.  Unfortunately, like many businesses, Acapulco restaurants have suffered during the recession and have closed many of their restaurants, including the one in Monrovia.  Luckily for Monrovia, the Huntington Oaks Shopping Center is a sought after location and Chipotle is the first of four new food outlets to sign on to occupy a new building which will replace the Acapulco building.

In October, the Planning Commission approved the new building and a conditional use permit for the service of alcoholic beverages.  The new building will have outdoor seating on a patio.  Construction should start at the beginning of the year.  As soon as we hear who will be occupying the other spaces, we’ll let you know.
