"There's no rent dispute.  Native is closing locations all over due to slow business.  They closed the location at Presidential Towers in the West Loop and the Clark Street location is also slow."

New Restaurant in Fuego Loco Spot

We just noticed that there is a new restaurant in the Fuego Loco space called Lola's Cantina.  Has anyone tried it or know anything about it?  We live half a block away but weren't huge fans of Fuego, so we're hoping it will be good.  Can't really find any info on the internet. See More
