IRON MOUNTAIN –The Dickinson Area Chamber Alliance Ambassadors hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate Ninas, a new drive-through business on Iron Mountain’s north side that specializes in Mexican-style dishes.

Owner Meagan Philipson said Ninas started operating in the Iron Mountain area as a mobile concession stand in April. They opened Oct. 16 at the new location at 701 N. Stephenson Ave.

“As a child, I would watch my grandmother, Luanne Dom, cook at her Mexican restaurant in upstate New York. I eventually learned all of her recipes and helped run the business there. When my grandmother retired last March, she handed down the concession stand to me so that I could continue the 30-year family business,” Philipson said.

The shop’s offering include tacos, desserts and “the best darn burrito in the area,” Philipson said.

The new site will be open year-round, with varying seasonal specials. Hours are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.

The mobile concession stand also will continue to travel to local venues in the summer months, Philipson said.

The business’s phone number is 906-448-5050.
