Take a stroll down the 100, 200 and first part of the 300 blocks of East Yosemite Avenue.
This is where you will see the future of downtown Manteca driven not by consultants, planners, and those that want to imprint on the Family City what has popped up in revitalized suburban Bay Arras downtowns such as Pleasanton and Livermore.
There is a thriving market, Super Altena that does a brisk business in staples as well as ready-to-eat Mexican food to go. Across the parking lot in the former hole-in-the-wall A&W drive-in that for years housed a Thai restaurant there are plans to open the seafood restaurant dubbed Las Delos Camaromes. Next door is the United Paleteria y Neveria ice cream shop. Almost directly across the street is Panderia La Laurita, a Mexican bakery that has been in business for more than two decades.
This is also where you will find other dining spots such as Hats & Boots as well as the Iron Horse Deli.
