About Us

Our Inspiration

We are bringing the taste of Texas to Michiana.  Our inspiration stems from memories from my childhood. The sounds of a mortar & pestle remind me of my great Abuela grinding corn to make fresh corn tortillas. Or the smell of wood smoking… reminding me of my uncles joking around a grill waiting for the wood to burn down to a comfortable flame to cook for the family. The smell of heated and ground chile guajillo and cumin turn my salivary glands on like a faucet. Traditions are built from good experiences and that’s what we are looking to build with you. We use good farm grown meat and high-quality vegetables because that is what we are used to. We take our time and focus on your experience because, well, that’s what our family would’ve done if you came over to eat. We use grills and smokers because… you know, thats how they do it in Texas.
