El Canelo Mexican Restaurant

When life gives you an abandoned Circle K turn it into a taqueria.  That is what the owners of El Canelo Mexican Restaurant did at the intersection of Capital Circle SW and S.R. 20.  I found myself on this side of town during lunch and decided to pay the unassuming former gas station a visit.

The fuel pumps and islands are gone.  The only thing remaining in the parking lot is a drab gray building that was previously home to the convenience store. Signs advertising specials on beers and a neon Corona sign were displayed in the windows.  A simple white and red sign displaying the restaurant’s name was tacked about the front door.
