When did this happen? The place is at the end of my street and I never heard/seen anything. I kinda wondered about that place. We used to eat there all the time. Once one of the employees told us not to come there on Sat. night (i think) when they had the bands because it was a "rough" crowd.

Why were they there if they're both under 21? I hope the police close the place down if they were serving kids.

Wondering, I was thinking it was restaurant also. However, the news is saying a nightclub. I think their business had been going down as a restaurant and they were bringing in more on Friday and Sat as a nightclub. Im betting there was some underage drinking occuring there, just like every other bar.

Mom, you are right. Wondering, if you think a twenty year old and an eighteen year old were going there to eat tacos, you're nuts.

Is that the same kid that was in the news with his brother about a year ago for beating up a kid because he did not want to be in his cv 155 gang?

My condolences to the family.

"You Guys Are Nuts" <- Is a thread troll. Like an evil person who hides in wait and cannot rest until they've destroyed the life of another, so is this mouth who speaks trash trying to make trash of others but instead only revealing the trash they are.

They have THE BEST shrimp enchiladas, anywhere--but on Fri-Sat nights, the music gets loud and the crowd is completely "ethnic". Sad for the affected families, but those underage kids had no business being there, except to find trouble.

Live by the gang...die by the gangs. When will these young people realize gangs are not worth it?
