My wife is from Guadalajara, Mexico.

After years of being a stay-at-home mother, she wanted to venture back out into business. She saw a need in our small town for a higher quality Mexican restaurant with furnishings and decor you would find in Guadalajara. 

We started our venture in Sept 1999. Working late nights with kids in hand (3 yrs, 2 yrs). I would leave my engineering job to meet my wife at the restaurant. We worked late into the night, getting the restaurant ready to open. 

On January 3, 2000, we opened. I continued to work my engineering job. I worked night shift during this time as an engineer and day shift at the restaurant. I was probably averaging 4 hrs sleep. After 1.5 years, the restaurant was doing well enough for me to quit my engineering job. 

It has been over 20 years now. We have been fortunate enough to be able to keep expanding our business into the north Alabama and Tennessee valley. We must be doing something right.

We know people have a choice where they can dine, and we do our best to make them want to dine with us.
