West Douglas in Delano is becoming quite the dining destination, and during the next couple of weeks, two more restaurants will open there.

The first will be (finally!) Ruben’s Mexican Grill at 915 W. Douglas, which owners Ruben an Anita Acosta hope to have open by Friday. The restaurant has been in transit since April, when it moved out of its spot at the corner of Douglas and McLean (which has since been demolished.) The Acostas originally hoped to be reopen last spring, but a long list of delays slowed them down.

The new restaurant will have an upgraded dining room and Ruben’s already familiar menu of Tex-Mex favorites.

About a week later, Big B’s Beef should complete its move to 605 W. Douglas, right next to Hatman Jacks’s. Owners Liz and Brian Bathgate are moving their restaurant from its original spot at 4628 S. Seneca and hope to be open by Dec. 2. The restaurant will be open for lunch and dinner Mondays through Saturdays and will offer delivery to businesses in Delano and downtown.

Big B’s serves Chicago-style hot dogs, Italian beef and gyros and will add soups and salads. For more information, call 316-522-2333.
