That's according to Barrio Cafe's own website, which currently has a can't-miss-it notice to Barrio friends:
"After many phone calls from our customers and friends, we just wanted to set the record straight.
WE ARE NOT MOVING TO PARADISE VALLEY!
We are staying right where we have been for over 6 years....in PHOENIX. The world is big and there are many Barrios (neighborhoods)....but there is only one Barrio Cafe!"
