THREE DECADES OF SUCCESS

BUILDING OUR COMPANY
1982–1987

We started out simply making tortillas – and they were very good, we might add. Using a family recipe, we opened a small shop and started the process, making them in the morning and selling them throughout the day.

Pretty soon, business was so brisk our customers started asking us why we didn’t make and sell other tasty Mexican treats? So we did.

BUILDING OUR RESTAURANTS
1982- 1994

Our first restaurant in Barrio Logan opened in 1982. Just a simple taco shop but a restaurant none the less. And while we had our hopes up high, we didn’t expect the success we achieved. Not only were our tortillas selling out, so were our tacos. And it wasn’t long before the inevitable happened.

Customers began asking for a bigger menu filled with more authentic Mexican dishes. We introduced our carnitas first, perfecting our family recipes so they could prepared in large volume.

Their overwhelming success gave us the confidence we need to ensure we were on the right track and before we knew it, we were a real-to-life restaurant, with a full menu and a dining room of happy, satisfied customers. Then, in the early ‘90’s we opened our second restaurant in La Jolla and expanded our restaurant in Barrio Logan.
