July Herrera Velasqez is the owner and manager of the restaurant, while her husband, Rigo has been the primary chef since they served their first customer. He is assisted by his mother, Reyna Herrera whose specialties include Orchata, Sopes and Salsas.

The Hernandez family moved to Winston-Salem in 1992 from California. Previously they move to California at the young age of 3 and 5. Their ancestors are from different states of Mexico: Nuevo Leon, Jalisco and San Luis Potosi. This varied heritage is the basis for the differences in the menu.
