MOLINE, Illinois-- Workers were at the El Pavito Mexican restaurant location on Monday morning, May 16, 2016 knocking down the building. The restaurant was located just east of 27th Street, near Fields of Pizza.
The plan is to replace the old restaurant with what is called a "Plaza on the Avenue."
So far city leaders say they haven't seen a design plan for the plaza yet. Although that does not stop the developers from building, that does put a hold on any sales tax or property tax incentives they may ask from the City of Moline in the future.
