Popular Ramon’s Restaurant Reopens on Lansing's Westside

Ramon’s, a Tex-Mex restaurant in Lansing, reopened in a new Westside Lansing location on Saginaw Street earlier this year and has seen a steady increase in business.

According to excerpts from the article:

The restaurant, which opened in January, has seen a steady increase in costumers since its new start. Many of them were patrons of the restaurant’s previous incarnations on Washington and East Grand River avenues.

For store owner Rieger (ne Fuentes), the new location on Saginaw Street is a slow return from the renowned Lansing restaurant her parents owned. But for Rieger and her husband, Steven, the return of her family-oriented Tex-Mex restaurant is a dream come true. "I daydreamed about when I would get my own restaurant," she said. "I think I’m a dreamer. I mean, how else do you get what you want than to have dreams?”

Out at 806 1/2 Saginaw St., Lansing, the primarily take-out restaurant, which shares a building with Pope´s House of Style, is a sight for sore eyes for former patrons who remember the original, pure Tex-Mex flavor of her parents´ cooking.

The small, white sign out on the parkway that reads "Ramon´s. We´re back," points to the rich and often painful history of the restaurant and the family behind it.
