Mi Pueblo Mexican Grill has opened in the Belgate Center at 7003 University City Blvd., near IKEA.
This regional chain of restaurants began 20 years ago in Winston Salem – the realization of a longtime dream by Jesus and Maria Ruiz.
Mi Pueblo now has 10 locations statewide, offering a broad selection of lunch and dinner entrees.
Diners will find the usual Fajitas, burritos and enchiladas, along with vegetarian dishes, seafood dishes such as Camarones Acapulquenos (shrimp cooked in Mi Pueblo’s special sauce) and numerous chicken and beef dishes.
University City’s Mi Pueblo is open for lunch and dinner. Breakfast will be added soon, the website says.
