Nearly a year after fire, Los Arcos restaurant to reopen soon in Abilene
ABILENE, Texas - The Los Arcos restaurant that burned down back in late February 2016 will soon be reopening its doors.
According to Grisselle Castro, the daughter of the restaurant owners, they are hoping to reopen by the end of January or early February, though no exact date has been confirmed yet.

She also wanted to thank the restaurant's customers for their support over the past year. She said the owners will let us know as soon as they figure out an opening date.
Fire damage repair is underway at the former Los Arcos restaurant on Abilene's north side.
The restaurant, located at 1902 Ambler, was declared a total loss by authorities earlier this year after a fire burned in the morning hours of Feb. 23. The cause of the fire was ruled accidental and electrical in nature.

Permits filed with the city of Abilene throughout the spring and, most recently Aug. 4, show fire damage repair to be underway. The estimated value of the August repairs is $215,000.
In a previous interview with KTXS just after the fire, the owners of Los Arcos expressed their intent to eventually rebuild and re-open the restaurant.
