El Balazo Closed

Original post made by sandy n., another community, on Mar 12, 2010

Seems all (7)but the original El Balazo restaurants shut their doors without notice to employees and public (Tri Valley Herald). Leaving hundreds of workers without pay due them.They are also delinquent in sales tax due the state. The owners live at 5910 Bruce Drive, off Tassajara (via public records), look where all the money went.

I thought they just opened the Mama Rosa restaurant by Trader Joe's. I was told the El Balazo owners own it.

OMG! My favorite place to get my nails done closed and they didn't contact me, either! Sandy, would you please find out where they live, too? Cuz that's totally not even creepy! :-)

legally bland - my point posting their address (which is public record) is because this house is a monstrocity and you can see they have pumped millions of dollars inside and out...yet their not paying their sales tax to the state or their employees...I guess they think they are better than the rest of us.

I talked to a worker at Mama Iosa and she told me there is no change there and that the Pleasanton El Ballzos have reopened.

Hey Sandy N !

Where do YOU live? What neighborhood do YOU live in? Come on. Tell us. It's "PUBLIC RECORD" - like the property tax rolls. You're in the phone book. Your name is in the school phonebook. So why not tell us?

You told us the address of the owners of the restaurant that just declared bankruptcy. You pointed a finger at them and encouraged disgruntled people to check out their home - where they live with their children. Did you want people to look on the internet, or to actually go there in person? You gave directions so I guess you wanted people who are upset at them to go there in person to the home where they live with their children. Should that mob take gasoline? ...or do you want them to just point and yell and terrorize the old folks and the children who are home with words? Are you sure?

So where do you live? Is it not very nice? Are you jealous of the nice home that the owners of a chain of restaurants built when they thought they could afford to live there?

What is your deal?

Bitter? Resentful? Or do you just like to point an angry mob at someone's family for fun?

How do you guys think that the owners of a popular mexican restaurant, who obviously dont do things by the book, suddenly have the recipes and knowhow of an Italian pizza and pasta restaurant in their son's name? Well, They stole it.
