Now, we find out something dark has been going on. The owner of Ranchos has apparently posted signs in the windows explaining that they are moving – and why they are moving.
In hand-lettered signs – in places hard to decipher – , the Ranchos owner charges their landlord with racism and a hatred of Mexicans.
And the Ranchos owner says they will be moving in a month to another location in San Diego – and invites his loyal customers to a new place with mariachis – and fresh fish and lamb added to a new menu – with better prices. No address of a new location was listed.
Here (to our best of our ability and with spelling corrections) we reprint what the signs state:
Dear loyal friends of Ranchos –
In one month Ranchos will move to a new location in San Diego. The reason for our moving is because of Mr. Mark Bitterlin (is) a racist person who hates Mexican people as you will find out through Channel 10, 8 and all local stations. They will print his letter of him saying we have to leave if he does not get the rent check that same day.
Never been late. It was my 3rd day late. But I cannot have some red neck come and humiliate me in front of my customers – telling and yelling if I don’t give him the rent he will throw me out.
Have him in video you will see in the news. And my lawyer will tell you another day how much all this month of racism will cost him.
Thanks, loyal customers.
We love you and will see you in a much bigger Ranchos with mariachis, home-made tortillas, everything organic, fresh seafood and lamb added to the menu.
Much better service and cheaper prices. Catering and delivery will start.
See you next month – will have first day half price everything.
Here are photos of the signs – thanks of South OB Girl.
