Adelitas grand opening Oct. 27

NORTH LIBERTY– Walk into Adelitas, and you won’t see too many sombreros, or other symbols of traditional Mexican culture for that matter.
“I tried to make it look a little bit more like a sports bar, something you would actually see in Mexico,” said Jose Antonio Hernandez, the young general manager and co-owner of Adelitas.
An avid sports fan, Hernandez wanted to go for the feel of a modern Mexican sports bar, as opposed to what most Mexican restaurants aim for. “It’s a little bit different. It’s not something that you would see in every place.”
