what happened to El Patio in Antioch?

lmswartz | Jun 15, 200412:31 AM

Had a hankering yesterday for some pupusas near our East Bay home, so we headed for our favorite Salvadoran place, El Patio, in Antioch. Imagine our surprise when we pulled up and found that El Patio is is now "Mike's", a Mexican place and tequila bar. What happened to El Patio? It wasn't the most popular place around (sadly, most far East Bay dwellers that we know are afraid to try any Latin American food that isn't Mexican), and they definitely had the Latin thing going when it came to pace and timing, but this place had the BEST pupusas I'd tried anywhere in the US, and I've lived and traveled all across this country. My Cuban husband swore that their platanos maduros were the best anywhere outside of Cuba. Just curious: anybody know what happened to them?
