El Rodeo on Hillsborough Street to become Chile Bomba

The Ibarra family, the restauratuers behind Jibarra and the El Rodeo restaurants across the Triangle, are converting their original Hillsborough Street location to a new concept.

Charlie Ibarra, one of the younger sons of the Ibarra family, is joining forces with his two brothers, Jessie and Hector, to transform the space into Chile Bomba. He says it will be a more playful concept with Mexican pop art on the walls and a more condensed Tex Mex menu with jalapeno hush puppies and burrito baskets.

The restaurant is at 2400 Hillsborough Street and next door to a Chipotle that will open this fall. It is across the street from N.C. State University. This was the original location of the Ibarra family's first El Rodeo restaurant that opened 18 years ago.

Ibarra hopes the transformation will be complete the week of Aug. 16th.
