Lupe’s, Aldo’s shuttered

Lupe's AztecaAnother longtime restaurant has closed.

Lupe’s Azteca Mexican Food in Redlands/Loma Linda has shut down.

The restaurant had been in operation since 1952.

A recent visit found a giant notice posted on the front door indicating that the restaurant was permanently closed.

Thanks to reader Vaughn, who contacted us via Twitter to let us know of the closing.

I remember going to Lupe’s at least once when I was a kid, but I don’t think I’ve been there in the decades since.

Lupe’s was at 25735 Redlands Blvd.

Also on the “closed” list is Aldo’s Mexican Food, 601 E. Foothill Blvd., Rialto. Aldo’s replaced another Mexican place, Ajuberto’s, which replaced Tasty Goody Chinese Fast Food.
