If you enjoy Mexican food, there’s good news and bad news: the good news is that Great Falls will soon be home to Cafe Rio, a Utah-based chain. It’s taking the spot formerly occupied by Hollywood Video. The bad news is that La Pastada on 9th Avenue South will be closing in a few days.
Surprisingly, I never got around to trying La Pastada, but I did enjoy their commercials. Never heard of Cafe Rio until today – sounds pretty good (but their website makes my head hurt).
Of course, this will generate a whole new round of “local versus chain” arguments.
