As an entrepeneur, I love this story.  This is much more than a review.  When a person goes from dish washer to owner of two successful Mexican restaurants, it should make us all say, “Si se Puede!”  Find out the story behind Tequila’s restaurants in Van Nuys, CA and Burbank.- Crysal A.

Two of the more popular choices for Mexican food in Los Angeles tends to be El Torito and Acapulco’s; however, Tequila’s owner, Tony Castillo takes a page from these restaurants and opening Tequila’s restaurant in Van Nuys in 2000.  Tequila’s became such as success that he opened another location on Magnolia Blvd in Burbank.  Castillo began as a disher washer working in the Mexican restaurant industry then worked his way up ownership  of two restaurants.  Isn’t that the American dream? Castillo is passionate and proud of the food served in his restaurant.  You may even see the owner serving if he is short staffed.  That seemed to be case when, I went.  The staff is friendly but the service extremely slow.
