August 7, 2009

NEW — 7:55 p.m. Aug. 7, 2009

Acapulco Fresh Mexican Grill, 1480 N.W. Gilman Blvd., unexpectedly closed earlier this week.

According to Acapulco Fresh employees at the Redmond and Sammamish locations, the Issaquah restaurant closed Wednesday.

By Friday afternoon, plastic sheets and a for-sale sign from JSH Properties, Inc. covered the windows and made it difficult to tell if remnants of the restaurant’s décor remained in the space.

A sign listing the hours of operations hung on the entrance, but no other messages were left for would-be customers.
