Connie’s is back, with most of the same Mexican and barbecue favorites and a new look on the inside.
New owners David and Shelaina Pflug, bought the restaurant and its recipes from Connie and Doug Buschman about two years ago.
David Pflug had worked for them since he was a teen, and the former owners were so close to him that a sweet and understandable rumor spread around Auburn (encouraged a bit by Connie, the Pflugs say) that they’d sold the place to their son.
The Pflugs ran it until about February, when they closed it to do some renovations.
The to-do list grew, as did David Pflug’s determination to get each Mexican tile perfectly aligned and every piece of kitchen equipment cleaned and refurbished.
