Huevos to go
West Hartford, Connecticut has spoken, and restaurant co-owner Bob Potter will comply: his new Mexican eatery there will not bear the name "C. O. Jones".
Customers of Potter's restaurant in New Haven don't seem to object to the name, or to the ballsy Mexican cuisine served, and so far there has been no uproar about a third location, to open in Storrs this spring, but West Hartford is evidently more testy than tickled.

It's ridiculous ... another uptight Connecticut town
They can't all be. Or can they?
West Hartford ,Darien, Westport ... all these towns are a little too concerned with image. Let the guy have fun with it.
And just when I was thinking that the stereotype of the stuffy New Englander was getting ready to recede into the mists, too.
CO Jones is a great name. It has been in New Haven now for four years so what makes Ct all of a sudden complain about the name? Leave the brother be. What are you trying to do take away our Consitution right . that freedom of Expression. You can not take the name of a restaurant and turn it inot what you want it to be. I do't seee anyone complaining about it except Ct.

Big deal.... it is just a name..
FYI for Wendy Charlton, CO Jones is basically in PA already. Big Burrito and Mad Mex is where Bob Potter learned how to create CO Jones.
I think it is funnier that they got publicity for it and now the name is "Mexican Restaurant" which is pretty straight forward. we love it and are there all the time.
