West Bend City Clerk Stephanie Justmann said the owner of Ion Sports Pub filed for a name change earlier this summer.
Ion Sports Pub opened May 1, 2017. The location was formerly home to Benders Restaurant & Sports Pub.
The name “Ion” was derived from a combination of the business partners first names Isaac, Oscar and Nora.
Earlier this summer a note was placed on the door as the business went dark. The sign said “closed for remodeling.”
Little activity was seen until recently when the La Cabanasigns were posted on the lawn along Paradise Drive.
La Cabana has two other locations in Hubertus and Fort Atkinson. The restaurant website now lists West Bend as its newest location. The site indicates, “opening soon.”
La Cabana describes itself:
WE DON’T JUST MAKE DELICIOUS MEXICAN FOOD. WE MAKE PEOPLE’S DAYS. LACABAÑA WAS BUILT ON THE BELIEF THAT MEXICAN FOOD SHOULD BE SPECIAL, AND WE CARRY THAT BELIEF INTO EVERYTHING WE DO.
At La Cabaña, we wanted to bring together two of our favorite things: traditional Mexican cuisine and American-style breakfast. Whether you order an alambre or a steak fajita, you know you’ll get fresh ingredients and bold flavors. As a family-owned restaurant, we wanted to create a place that every member of your family can enjoy — that’s why even our Little Amigo’s menu is diverse.
