Cielito Lindo

Cielito Lindo began as not much more than a few wooden tables and benches, a charcoal burning bracero and a wooden shack to store a few supplies.

Running water was not available so the water was drawn from the gas station directly behind the stand. The food was cooked at home and bundled in cloth “manteles” to be carried to Olvera Street daily by trolley.

Later, the family rented a small kitchen on Commercial Street in a building near the Placita Church.

Thus began our family tradition that has now also become a tradition for hundreds of Angelenos and visitors.
