A Mexican restaurant serving cafeteria style breakfast, lunch and dinner will soon occupy the site of the old Landmark Breakfast shop at 129 W. Main St. in the Jonesboro area, according to signs in the window and information from the Sanford/Lee County Planning Department.

Fonda Lupita is “coming soon,” according to the signs. The plans on file call for a “Mexican market and restaurant” serving a cafeteria-style breakfast, lunch and dinner. Some cosmetic renovations will need to be done prior to the restaurant’s opening.

Biridiana Frausto described the concept as similar to Chipotle in that customers will order their meals from behind a glass counter, and said the menu will differ some from other Mexican restaurants in the area.

“Everything will be handmade, like something you would get at a Mexican grandmother’s home,” she said. “The dishes will mainly be stews – like potatoes with chiles and chicken, steak with peppers and poblanos. It won’t be a set menu, there will be like a stew of the day. More like comfort food, I want to say.”

Breakfast options will include quesadillas and traditional Mexican drinks like atoles.

Frausto said she’s looking at opening in mid-January. The Landmark Breakfast Shop vacated the location and moved to a storefront on South Horner Boulevard in mid-2019. Visit Fonda Lupita on Facebook here.
