To someone on Facebook, it must have seemed like every day the question has been posted “Is Eric’s San Jose open yet?”
After repeated comments and speculation, and eventual deviation into which other Mexican restaurants are worth eating at, that burning question has its own site, IsEricsSanJoseOpenYet.com, where you can go for the answer... or not.
The State wrote about Eric’s San Jose moving to the building that previously housed Moe’s Grapevine Italian and later Rooftop Pizza Pub restaurants on Rosewood Dr., near Midlands Tech, back in November 2017. At that time, an opening date was not known.
Since then, starting around the second week on January, at least once a week Facebook posters have been asking innocently enough if Eric’s had opened.
Then this happened...
While there’s still no firm opening date set for Eric’s, Eric Leon, the restaurant owner, said that the restaurant has passed final DHEC inspections and he has obtained a liquor license. Leon is in the process of hiring staff before he can open Eric’s San Jose “in a couple of weeks.”
