We had to go back a bit for background, but the work going on next to Best Western Plus in Tupelo is for the long-awaited Mexican cantina we first mentioned three years ago.
In an updated story in October 2017, we posted that the restaurant would be called Mi Pueblo. We’re not sure if that’s the name that they’ll stick with, because a year earlier, the plans were to call it Cantina Del Rose.
Until we get confirmation, we’ll stick with Mi Pueblo for now.
And according to plans filed in 2017, the restaurant will measure 6,315 square feet and will accommodate up to 255 people. That includes a bar with 11 barstools and seating for 24 in the bar area. A buffet line also was in the plans.
Once built, it will be the third Mexican food restaurant in the Barnes Crossing area (four if you include Taco Bell) joining Salsarita’s and Rita’s Grill & Bar.
Work on the site next to Best Western Plus on North Gloster.
