El Novillero to break tradition, open on a Sunday

Fans of El Novillero, the popular Mexican restaurant on Franklin Blvd., have always been stuck if they've wanted to eat there on a Sunday. For 30 years, family tradition has held that the restaurant stay closed on Sundays. But that's about to change, for the first time in three decades.

El Novillero will open its doors this Sunday, as a kind of Valentine's Day gift. So, if your sweetie is craving some family-style Mexican food, drop by El Novillero (4216 Franklin Blvd., Sacramento) from 2 p.m. - 9 p.m. on Sunday.

"We just decided we can't miss this opportunity to serve and be there for our loyal customers," said Joe Davalos Jr., El Novillero's owner, in a press release.

Enjoy this Mexican dining on a Sunday while you can. After Valentine's Day, the restaurant will go back to honoring its family tradition, with a big "closed" sign in the window to wind down the weekend.
