Anyone have an opinion on El Vallarta Mexican Restaurant? From what I can tell their original location is in Blair and they have a second location in LaVista that has been there a year or two near 84th & Giles.

They are opening a third location in a new strip that is not yet completed. Have not made it to try one of their exciting locations yet but would be curious what anyone thoughts here are.

I have been to the one in LA Vista, and it was decent enough. Nothing spectacular, but I would say it was above average. I would go back.

I have heard that Amigos is opening a location in Gretna. It is in one of the new strips that is being completed. From what I understand it is the end location on the one that is furthers along and has an Insurance agent and a Supercuts already open. Anyone able to confirm this?

It looks like Amigos is more than a rumor. The developer has applied for a special use permit for a drive through at the strip plaza where they want to go.

Also, it looks like Runza wants to move and is looking at a free standing location at the entrance to Plum Creek next to the new Dental building that is just being completed.

A special use permit allowing for a drive thru was approved for 11922 Standing Stone Drive. For those that know Gretna this I believe this is the South end cap for the new strip where Super-cuts and the State Farm agent is. The business that was stated when the permit was is Zesto's.

Looks like Zesto's will be Joining Amigos (in the neighboring building) whose permit was approved recently in this general area.

Wonder if the ownership is the same as other any other Zesto's

It will be nice to have a Zesto's out there. I usually end up driving that stretch about once a week.

The zoning variance for a drive through at the location that Runza is going to build passed earlier this week. The area they want to build was zoned for what they wanted but not as a drive through location. There was plenty of resistance and concern voiced by the adjoining neighborhood, much of it valid, but it moves forward.

The on again, off again, on again free standing Runza Location in Gretna broke ground this week after looking at alternate locations for a while from what I had heard.

The Amego's that got city approval has backed out and will not happen at this time. They were going in the opposite end of a new strip plaza and the other end housed the relatively new El Vallareta Mexican restaurant and word there is that this was part of why it got shelved with some resistance directed to the building owner.

The Zesto's that was approved by the city including a drive through variance has not happened. I believe the franchise owner that was doing this location is From Elkhorn and my speculation is they moved there focus to the new location that recently opened Near Hyw 6/31 & Pacific.

Mentioned elsewhere that the Runza being built as a replacement in Gretna is said to be a next generation design.


Here is what I consider to be the standard free standing new build location look

AS you can see from a few crappy cell phone photos I took on my way home tonight there is a pretty big difference to this building

Amigo's is remolding and going in to the old Runza location in Gretna. They already have a sign up saying NOW HIRING.

Unofficially I heard 60 days to open
