Colorful stringers hung from the ceiling of Greenville’s newest Mexican restaurant as the owners were putting the finishing touches on San Pedro’s Mexican Grill on Friday.

The restaurant, which is named after the owners’ grandfather, is located on East Commerce Street.

Felix Rural, co-owner of San Pedro’s, said two years ago, his parents moved him to Greenville from Alexander City.

Rural said naming the family-owned restaurant after his grandfather was a must.

“He was a good man,” Rural said with a smile. “He taught us a lot of good stuff. We miss him and wanted to have something to remind us about him.”
San Pedro’s will be serving traditional Mexican food fare, including fajitas, quesadillas, burritos and enchiladas, to name a few.

Rural said there will be a lunch buffet served every day from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. that costs $6.99.

Additionally, Rural said the combination plates are a highlight the restaurant offers.

Along with the buffet, San Pedro’s will offer the lunch menu option.

San Pedro’s held a soft opening last Saturday and its grand opening on Tuesday with a ribbon cutting.

The opening of San Pedro’s makes the third Mexican restaurant to be established in Greenville.

Rural said what makes his eatery different than the others is the experience he’s accumulated along the way.

Rural has been in the restaurant business for 10 years, and his family owns another Mexican restaurant in Shelby County. His family also owns a restaurant in Alexander City.

Rural said he’s happy to be serving the Greenville community.

“I really love this town,” he said. “There’s a quietness about it. I really have enjoyed moving here and it’s a really fun town. We came to stay, and hopefully we’ll make it.”

The restaurant’s hours are Saturday through Thursday from 11 a.m. until 9 p.m., and on Fridays from 11 a.m. until 10 p.m.
