I was just at Santiago's XII at 2925 West 38th Avenue -- my favorite place to get the most awesome $2 breakfast burritos on the way to work -- and spotted a sign in the window telling customers that this restaurant will be moving to 2505 Federal Boulevard at the end of May.
That spot at the corner of 25th and Federal (right across from Jack-n-Grill) has swallowed many Mexican joints over the years, including Lienso Charro, Fritangas and the short-lived Las Parrallida. But Santiago's has such a strong following that it's likely to make a go of this location.
Guess I'm going to be taking a new route to work.
