One of downtown El Centro's more popular eateries closed Friday in anticipation of moving to a new location on Evan Hewes Highway.
Junior's Cafe closed its doors Friday.
"There just doesn't seem to be room for growth downtown," said Carlos Salcedo, Junior's owner, adding with the limited parking there is only so much business that can be conducted in the downtown area.
Salcedo said he will reopen Junior's at the former location of the Asadero Jalisco, which before that was a liquor store. He said he could not run the Main Street restaurant and remodel the new location simultaneously. The Main Street location could accommodate a maximum of 60 people, while the Adams Avenue can seat about 80 comfortably.
