Plans have been announced for two new restaurants in downtown Owensboro. And one of them will be a full scale Salsarita's Fresh Cantina.

The brand new Salsarita's will be located here . . . at the site of what used to be El Toribio Mexican Restaurant on the Owensboro Riverfront.


According to Salsarita's owner, Mike Baker, the current building will be torn down.  Deconstruction of the current site will begin approximately February 2016 and construction of the new building will take place over the course of six to nine months.

Upon completion, the new structure will house two new restaurants.  One will be a full-scale Salsarita's Fresh Cantina, with full bar and full patio.  The second restaurant has not yet been determined or announced though, according to Baker, there are multiple themes and ideas on the table.
