Los Compadres re-opens Wednesday

Los Compadres patrons were shocked when representatives of the Internal Revenue Service showed up at the second Lebanon location on South Cumberland at lunchtime on Tuesday.

Owner Jose Gutierrez assured the public that they will remain in business.

We hired a new accountant through an attorney that was assisting us. He was handling the books and this accountant kept ignoring filing our taxes the right way. All of our mail was coming to their office, he said of the mix-up.

Gutierrez said they have addressed the issue and that the restaurant will be open again today (Wednesday, Jan. 16).
