“We were inspired to represent true traditional Mexican cuisine. We knew that Mexican food wasn’t represented at the time we opened. We were also inspired to bring a new business to a neighborhood that has great history and people.”

What’s the best thing about doing business in Oakland?
We feel the best thing about doing business in Oakland is that we feel part of the community. We feel the local love and support from our customers. We have had loyal customers since we opened and that means a lot to us.

What’s the one thing Oakland offers that you couldn’t live without?
I love its grittiness to be honest.
