Betty and Luna Barrios, the grand-daughters of La Rondalla’s original owner, have to once again delay the re-opening of their family restaurant. Earlier this week, crews were busy putting tiles in the dining area.

The Barrios have had to apply for a liquor license transfer with Alcohol Beverage Control and that permit is pending.

They now expect to open by June at the latest.

In the meantime, we snapped some pictures to show you what the interior will look like.

    1. In a previous article, the owners said they have already spent $500,000! Is it really that expensive to open at this location?

      1. well, considering they probably had 50 years of code violations, AND had to fix all the apartments upstairs before they could work on the restaurant, $500,000 could be pretty accurate.

        1. “had to fix all the apartments upstairs before they could work on the restaurant, ”

          why is that?

          1. “Forget it Jake, it’s Cholo-Town”; not ‘Gringo-Ville’. Massa ain’t never gonna stop messing with us.
