Lindo Mexico shows off new location

WYOMING, Mich. (WZZM) -- A Wyoming restaurant offered a sneak peak at its new and improved location Monday evening.

The official opening for Lindo Mexico is scheduled for December 2. That's 15 years to the day when the original location opened at the corner of Clyde Park and 28th Street. It's moving down 28th Street to a spot near Taft.

"We're excited to be investing in this corridor of 28th Street, at a time when not everybody is really interested in doing that," spokesman Raul Alvarez. "We felt we're putting faith in our customers, we're putting faith in the city of Wyoming who has been working closely with us as we continue to grow. We're excited about making an investment in this area."

Another perk for the new location: Lindo Mexico now has the room for a bar.
