As long as a 2000 square foot restaurant cost a minimum of $60,000.00 a month, anyone who starts an independent restaurant that is not apart of a chain-Applebee's, Panda, etc. is the worst businessman in the world.
Unless that businesswoman is laundering money.
Think about how much money is needed per day to just break even.
Figure it out in very broad terms and it does not make since that these "operations"-restaurants, Hello Kitty, and other chatskyesq huge storefronts in San Mateo, Burlingame, and Millbrae are even close to being above board."
Then again, I may be just another poor money manager.


You are just another poor money manager.


Dear Mr. Hill,
Thank you for your comment.

12 hours a day and a semi full house will pay the rent. Problem is when someone new is on the block and you lose the fickle patron. Very hard dollar to make in the restaurant business. Will try it but the Taco place on the Ave.(Cornett) is a better deal.


Forget La Corneta. If you want a great cheap Mexican meal, go to any one of the places on B Street in San Mateo. Pancho Villa is my fav. Staying local Sixtos blows La Corneta away.
