We receive a lot of “news tips” on a daily basis at WDAZ. Some don’t pan out. Some have “elements” of truth in them. And some are 100% accurate. Sadly, that was the case yesterday when a call came through to the newsroom from an unidentified source alerting us to the possibility that Mi Mexico had closed.
My mind immediately began racing for reasons that one of my top three favorite Grand Forks restaurants was closed at 3:00 p.m. on a Tuesday. But I knew better. And less than an hour later we had indeed confirmed that it was closed.
I will really miss Mi Mexico. As will my parents who enjoyed coming to the big city for a chance to take me to lunch. And more often than not we chose Mi Mexico. I’d like to think we did our part in keeping it open.
In addition to the food, I will also miss the very, very friendly staff at the restaurant. Good people who always took the time to talk for more than just a few seconds.
Eighteen months of Mi Mexico wasn’t enough for this guy.
