20211127 Stefanos HMiller 04 webStefano’s in Harlingen was hit with a tragic fire just days before Christmas. We would like to support our advertiser by inviting our readers to support them, by visiting their other location in Pharr.

According to news reports, the damage to their Harlingen location was deemed a total loss by the fire department. The restaurant has been reduced to fragments, said the news.

No one was hurt in the blaze, but it did put planned holiday celebrations and catering events from the location to a halt.

According to the news, community members and businesses held several fundraisers for the 70+ employees that were suddenly without a job just before the holidays. A GoFundMe account has also been set up to help the owner and employees.

After seven years to make Stefano’s a favorite among the Harlingen community, the general manager says they will start over, according to the news report by ValleyCentral.com.
