  1. Now that the wonderful Del Rio restuarant is open again, I just had another great lunch there. Leticia Rohas, the owner of Del Rio, and an active member of the White Center Chamber of Commerce, has initiated exceptional management controls and the health department has given the Del Rio a clean bill of health. The restaurant is open until 5 pm every day. The dining area has been expanded and the White Center Chamber of Commerce will be holding a luncheon meeting at the Del Rio this spring.

    Great job Leticia! I love to eat at your great Mexican restaurant.

    Mark Ufkes, President
    White Center Chamber of Commerce
