UPDATED: Kuba Kuba Dos Now Open

Paperwork is a pain.

Posted By on Mon, Apr 27, 2015 at 2:22 PM

UPDATE: Co-owner Manny Mendez says the Henrico health department just left and Kuba Kuba Dos is open for business. "Four parties are in [for lunch]," Mendez says, "and we're ready to go."

And the roller coaster ride has begun.

The new Kuba Kuba Dos, at 403 N. Ridge Road, Manny Mendez, and Johnny Giavos' second location of the popular Fan restaurant, Kuba Kuba, debuted its expanded menu at lunch today. Unfortunately, there was some confusion, as far as the Health Department is concerned, about the restaurant's paperwork. Because it's part of an umbrella corporation, the owners (which also include Hugo Jordan) didn't realize that submitting a name change form was necessary. An agent driving buy noticed that the restaurant was open and ordered it shut down until all the proper paperwork is submitted.

Giavos is confident that Kuba Kuba Dos will be open for business tomorrow, as planned.
