El Fandango Restaurant

You are here Home  > Restaurants and Bars >  El Fandango Restaurant

El Fandango’s building is relatively new, but the land on which it sits was the site of the Machado family mansion, which was destroyed by fire in 1858. It is believed that the ghost who was once seen here may have had something to do with the area’s past. The hazy apparition of a woman in white Victorian garb was seen sitting at a table in the dining room.

  1. This restaurant closed years ago, and the property is vacant. It’s in an excellent location but it’s not being used. Must be some problems with the building or the property managers. I belong to a local paranormal investigation team and we would be happy to investigate and report any findings.
