PIEDRAS NEGRAS, Mexico Gunmen sprayed bullets at a restaurant Tuesday where the mayor of a Texas border town was eating with a Mexican state attorney general and other officials, police said. A woman leaving the building was killed.
Coahuila state Attorney General Jesus Torres and Chad Foster, mayor of Eagle Pass across the border from Piedras Negras, were unharmed, according to police officers at the scene.
Wow, Via Acuna & Piedras Negras are usually pretty mild mannered compared to other Border Towns.

The Charcoal Grill, according to the AP.
I was looking for one of the old-time restaurants that the politicos used to congregate at. Probably all defunct now cause that was a long time ago.
I never heard of a restaurant over there with a English name.
