OROVILLE – Trinidad Medina, probably best known locally for his Trino’s Mexican Restaurant, has opened The Plaza Restaurant and Lounge at 1412 Main Street in Oroville in the former Yo Yo’s location.

Medina is originally from Mexico, but has been an Okanogan County resident for over 37 years. The Plaza Restaurant has been open for two months. Hours of operations are seven days a week, 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. (restaurant), 11 a.m. to close (lounge)

“We serve a full food menu and have a well stocked lounge,” said manager Tim Morgan, who has been a fixture with previous owners for the last 12 years. “(In the lounge) we will have bands, karaoke, DJ’s. Our first big party is coming for Halloween on Saturday, Oct. 27″

The goal of the business is to continue a great menu selection with great food and customer service.

“A place to bring your family and friends with ‘breakfast all day’ for years to come,” said Morgan. “Oroville and surrounding community needed more menu choices, a place to hold meetings and have a party or just to relax.”

Medina adds, “We have great food and selections combined with great customer service, along with 30 years of restaurant experience. A lot of the old staff has returned with some new faces and are there to make you feel comfortable and welcome.”

The Plaza can be reached by phone at (509) 476-2664.
