Keith Paxman and Rich McSheffrey have a lot on their plates. Late last year, they opened Cornerstone Pub & Kitchen, then expanded to provide food service for the Country Club of Barre. Now, as soon as December 1, the lifelong friends will open Two Loco Guys at Barre’s 136 North Main Street.

Two Loco Guys will serve burritos and bowls, but, Paxman says, not quesadillas or tacos. He says the “global flavors” may include Caribbean curry and Asian-style burritos alongside classic Mexican or Southwestern versions.


As of August 28, Bill and Naomi Maglaris have one diner fewer in their empire. The Arcadia Diner in South Burlington, previously known as the Parkway Diner, has closed because of a lease issue, says Bill Maglaris. His customers can still visit Henry’s Diner in Burlington, Athens Diner in Colchester and Apollo Diner in Milton.


The rumors that the owners of Rosie’s Restaurant in Middlebury will take over Jericho’s Fields restaurant are true. Chris Dorman, vice president of operations for Rosie’s, says he and his father-in-law, owner Kevin Cummings, expect to close on the deal in October. Check this space for updates.
