2nd eatery gets beer license

Pueblo Viejo, 117 S. Main St., Hillsboro, has received approval from Hillsboro City Council to become the second Hillsboro restaurant to sell beer.

“Having that available and knowing that’s what the public wants is not bad for Hillsboro,” Mayor Lou Thurston said Sept. 7. “The choice to choose to consume alcoholic beverages is something personal. With us, it’s not as much of a personal question as it is a business question.”

Country Haven has been urging local businesses to sell alcohol, but restaurant manger Erik Porres said it wasn’t a factor.

He has not yet seen an increase in customers, but said, “I think people don’t know yet.”

He is planning to add new street tacos to the menu and potentially open on Mondays.
