If you haven't swung past Avila's on Maple Avenue in the last week or so, you might be surprised by the sudden turn that's left the time-honored Mexican spot looking more This Old House than Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.
It's a stirring cautionary tale of what can happen when you let Guy Fieri in your door, a mixed blessing that's made the last few months a tumultuous time at the home of 2008's best meatless enchiladas (and an 8 on the Dude Food scale, if you're scoring at home).
So is Avila's looking at a renovation or a move? Robert's keeping up with the latest over on Unfair Park.
Update Friday morning: A follow-up piece on Unfair Park says Judge Ken Molberg has ordered Ricardo Avila to replace everything he's removed from the restaurant by Sunday. There's a court hearing this afternoon.
