Almost 40 years ago, María de Jesús Rodríguez Castañeda and her husband, Antonio Rojas Castro, began serving tacos on the Ajijic plaza every night for customers who soon grew to love their way of preparing everyone’s favorite street food.
When the occasional customer didn’t have money, the family would let them pay later or waive the charge altogether, which eventually scored Antonio the nickname “El Cholo” from the cholos who frequented his stand.
Today, Tacos “El Cholo” is owned by Antonio and Maria’s grandson, Juan José Gamboa, and his wife, Angy Saucedo. Together with Cenaduría Memo, they are amongst the longest standing restaurants in Ajijic
