“I’ve been working in different Mexican restaurants in the area since 2005, starting washing dishes, cooking, serving, etc.,” Castro said. “I met Jose a few years ago at El Toro when we worked together, and we became good friends. One day we started talking about having our business since pretty much all the people involved in the project loved the restaurant business.”
Once they have a liquor license, Mi Lindo Jalisco’s menu will offer many flavors of margaritas, including passion fruit and kiwi, in addition to specialty, house-created flavors like Rosa Negra Margarita and the Tuna Margarita — Desert Prickly pear syrup, Tequila reposado, Margarita Mix and freshly squeezed lime juice.
Desserts such as fried ice cream, Sopapillas, Mexican churros and lava cake are also served.
The founders of Mi Lindo Jalisco say they have been excited and ready to launch their own restaurant for more than a year. It was just a matter of finding a location that felt right.
“Finally, we found the right location and also, the perfect area,” Castro said. “Which I love because I have been living in the area for almost 14 years.”
