Friday morning, La Posada, a Mexican restaurant in Big Spring, was welcomed as the newest member of the Big Spring Area Chamber of Commerce with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. They were joined by family, friends, staff, and Chamber Ambassadors.
Previously owned by Connie and Demetrio Alvarado of Big Spring, La Posada had been closed for over 10 years. It is now owned by Linda Brito-Smith, Connie’s sister, and her husband Michael Smith.
According to Michael, the reopening of the restaurant has been in the works for 3 years and was finally able to open its doors for a soft opening in May of this year.
Linda told K-BEST News that they feel really wonderful to be able to re-open the restaurant.
“We worked really hard,” she continued. “It’s good to open the restaurant again, bring back memories and have something to give back to the community.”
La Posada proudly stirs up nostalgic memories with the original decor and original recipes from when they had been previously opened.
Michael told KBest News that La Posada brings back a lot of memories for many generations of people - memories of being children, in school, and eating dinner after baseball games. It’s an experience that customers want to share with their children.
La Posada still has the all-you-can-eat buffet and all-you-can-eat fajitas on Friday night. They also have menu items, which include ribeye and T-bone steaks. They also offer a full-service bar that is connected to the patio.
This Saturday they’ll have live entertainment on the patio with The Band Big Spring. They’re open from 11 am - 2 pm Wednesday-Sunday for lunch, and for dinner from 5-9 pm. Guests can dine in or take out.
Linda advised that Connie Alvarado and her husband Demetrio are the brains behind the operation of the restaurant and also thanked her staff for all of their hard work.
