We've reported on the supposed reopening of La Rondalla so many times in the past that I'm not certain I believe this, but Grub Street is claiming that the beloved Valencia Street shithole is due to reopen in the coming weeks:
Before shuttering in 2008, Mexican dive La Rondalla (Valencia & 20th) was affectionately referred to across the webs as a “Rosarita crack den” and a “diarrhea factory,” but it was nonetheless a beloved neighborhood hang with cheap drinks and lots of Christmas lights. We've been hearing for over a year now that sisters Betty and Luna Barrios were trying to reopen their father Carlos Barrios's restaurant, since he never chose to lease it out, and renovations have been proceeding really slowly by all accounts. But Eater now brings word that that a reopening is close! By June at the latest, they say.
