Gorditos Mexican restaurant has reopened after being heavily damaged in the March 9 natural gas explosion that destroyed three businesses around the corner, and damaged another 50.
The restaurant, at 213 N. 85th St., announced on its Facebook page Saturday morning that it was reopening that day, and crowds appeared brisk. KING 5 had a nice story that night.
Mr. Gyros, which was one of the businesses that was destroyed in the blast, is parking its food truck most afternoons and evenings in the now-empty lot on Greenwood Avenue North between North 84th and 85th streets.

The popular food truck Now Make Me a Sandwich is opening a brick-and-mortar location in Greenwood, at 8202 Greenwood Ave. N., where Kalbi Grill Express used to be (Kalbi closed late last fall because of an extended family emergency).
Now Make Me a Sandwich owner Ryan O’Toole, who lives in the area, tells me they plan to open sometime in September, with favorites from their current menu plus a few more choices. They will serve beer and wine, but it will be family-friendly.
The food truck will be open for business in their parking lot this Saturday during the Greenwood Car Show.
