Second Poblano's opening Tuesday

The owners of Poblano’s Mexican Grill are opening their second Columbia County location on Tuesday.


Poblano’s will initially employ 18 to 20 workers at 341 Baston Road, said owner Tony Onate, who also owns the three Augusta area Monterrey Mexican restaurants.

“It’s a growing area. On this side, you don’t have a whole lot of restaurants,” Mr. Onate said. “It’s in a great location. It’s on the corner, so it’s pretty visible.”

The 5,000-square foot Baston Road building was formerly the location of Loco's Grill and Pub.

Mr. Onate and his brother, Juan Onate, opened their first Poblano’s restaurant in 2005 at 7005 Evans Town Center Blvd. They also have one in Lawrenceville, Ga.

Poblano’s serves Tex-Mex and traditional Mexican cuisine.
