Rutherfordton, N.C. (WSPA)- 7 News traveled to Rutherfordton, North Carolina to visit Mi Pueblito, a Mexican restaurant open seven days a week serving lunch and dinner.
The restaurant was opened by a couple who met in Rutherfordton working at a local restaurant. Rodrigo Chavez and Cynthia Cope opened the restaurant and knew opening Mi Pueblito was a good idea because they loved family and food.
The Texas fajitas, Chavez said, are the best seller of their Rutherfordton restaurant. They’re made with shrimp, steak and chicken and come out of the kitchen made fresh and hot.
The guacamole is made fresh as well and most every table orders a cheese dip as soon as they sit down for their meal.
The tortilla chips are also made to order and many recipes are from family passed down through generations.

Mi Pueblito is open 11-10 Mon-Sat and 11-9 on Sundays. They have four locations
