Demolition work is underway on the former Riviera Maya restaurant in Alton. The location sits directly in front of the Home Depot on the Homer Adams Parkway and for many years was a Ponderosa Restaurant. Once the demo is complete, a new two story building will be constructed that will house a new Jimmy John's location as well as another business.
Earlier this year, the Alton City Council approved the subdivision of the property for the developer G.J. Grewe. Riviera Maya moved to the former El Mezcal Restaurant next to Liberty Bank at Humbert Street and the Parkway.
