WILLIAMSBURG-Los Paisanos Mexican Restaurant & Grill on Pocahontas Trail near Colonial Williamsburg is under new ownership.

The restaurant, which used to be the National Pancake & Waffle House before rebranding as Los Paisanos Mexican Restaurant & Grill in August 2021, is now owned and managed by Kathy Zeledon and her parents, Rolando Salazar and Esmeralda Zeledon.

In a phone interview on Wednesday, June 15, Kathy Zeledon said her family officially took over the business this past March.

“It’s everyone’s dream to own their own business,” she said. “The opportunity came upon us, so we decided as a family to take a leap and buy the business.”

The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. In addition to Mexican cuisine, the new owners of Los Paisanos Mexican Restaurant & Grill, who are from El Salvador, have added a few authentic El Salvadorian dishes to the menu including pupusas prepared with handmade tortillas.

“We also have a Latin breakfast, which is popular, as well as Latin soups,” Zeledon said.

Los Paisanos Mexican Restaurant & Grill is located at 7105 Pocahontas Trail. Hours of operation are Monday through Thursday, 8am to 8:30pm, Friday, 8am to 9pm, Saturday, 7am to 9pm, and Sunday, 7am to 8:30pm. For more information on the restaurant, visit its Facebook page.

Welcome to the future of local news

Today, July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper (except we also give you access to all the news we published before that day). We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in free credit just for signing up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for about 15 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
