The lone vacancy was home to El Fenix Cafe' Mexican food restaurant that closed in 2020 after nearly 20 years there. If you've ever been interested in owning your own restaurant, well here's your chance.

The Entire Burro Alley Retail Center Is Priced at $1,600,000 Dollars

Nonetheless, this historic yet iconic set of buildings that make up the Burro Alley shopping plaza is all available for $1.6 million dollars. As mentioned above at an additional price the El Fenix restaurant owner is willing to sell the El Fenix concept and recipes for the restaurant business, for an additional price.

Learning that this historic 12 shop plaza sends memories of the Alley as early as I can remember. It was back in 1975 when it was Casa Herrera that occupied the restaurant where El Fenix was. The rest of the shops as far as I can remember were a hair, nail, clothing, souvenir, insurance, and an arts & crafts boutique.

As far as the restaurant goes I found out that the kitchen is been renovated to code and is ready to be occupied, whether or not a deal is made for El Fenix Cafe' Mexican Restaurant. One thing is for sure the photos keep bringing back memories.

Oriented around a courtyard with a fountain, each retail space allows tenants to their own entrance and identity - the reason 11 of the 12 retail spaces are leased. The lone vacancy was home to El Fenix - a popular Mexican food restaurant that closed in December of 2020. The restaurant's area is ready for occupancy whether a deal is negotiated for El Fenix or if a new owner brings an alternate dining concept to the space.
