The full name of Eric's business is Eric's Mini-Market and Carniceria Hispanic American Restaurant.

That's a mouthful so we just keep it at Eric's Restaurant, which is how it appears on the carry out menu they gave us.

He's been working seven days a week for a long time. His wife seemed ready for a vacation.

I didn't have time to mention in the piece that they have a liquor license. Another customer was sucking on a beer with his soft-shell taco.

Doug really can be picky and does not like many places we visit. He really liked Eric's. Made to order goes a long way in a small business. This is the kind of restaurant I would like to visit every week.

You could go to Eric's and run across the street to the Miller Park Zoo and make it a great day.
