Reader Brian tells me that Altamirano’s Mexican restaurant at 422 N. Milpas Street has closed. I stopped by and the place was indeed closed and locked during regular business hours. The fact that business no longer answers the phone is another sign of their demise.

    Just talked to an inside source who imformed me that owners couldn’t come together with the landlord on new lease. The landlord wanted more money and the decided the numbers just wouldn’t pencil out. So after 20 years they called quits on Milpas. They are still open in downtown Goleta with the same menu.

    They’ve been operating down in the Funk Zone in the old
    Hidden Dolphin space too.

    Maybe another restauranteur will pick up the space. They’re leaving the fixtures in place hoping for that. It’s a good spot and will see more traffic now that a 7-Eleven (yuck and alas) is moving in three doors down.
