OUR TEAM

Dedicated restaurant service


Originally we were and still are a family owned restaurant…


That means, that while our team almost in half consists of our founder’s family members, we’re anyways one big friendly team!


All of our chefs, cooks, assistants or even waiters are highly professional, extra dedicated and super friendly and hospitable!

MANUEL UMBERTO JUAREZ

Chef

 

While our founder is our main chef, he’s also a part of our family! Managing our menu, interior, and finances, this man still manages to rock his major position – cooking a majority of our restaurant dishes!

ALBERTO BERNANZO

Chef's assistant


Alberto is originally from Italy, which means that his passion for rich, flavorsome and spicy southern dishes falls in line with our Mexican menu range!


He’s Manuel’s right hand, helping him run the kitchen and oversee all other cooks and assistants!

CORTEZ FERNANDEZ

Chef's assistant


In an interesting twist, Cortez is Manuel’s brother in law… His incredible talent for cooking was what landed him this position. While previously working at a Tex-Mex restaurant in San Diego, Cortez gained enough experience and skills…

JORDANO JUAREZ

Cook


Jordano is Manuel’s oldest son and among other 3 kids, he was the only one deciding to pursue a career in the culinary business. His diligence and high working pace were what landed him an insurmountable lead among all other cooks in our kitchen…

SERENA JOHNSON

Cook


Serena was the first cook we hired before opening our restaurant doors 12 years ago. In these 12 years, she proved to be the most enthusiastic and innovative master we have, taking credit for 12 signature dishes of her own recipe…

ANGEL JUAREZ

Cook


Angel is just one of those few people who besides loving eating a tasty meal also loves to cook one… In fact, he loves cooking so much, that he’s basically the engine of our kitchen, working and preparing almost a third of all orders…

JONATHAN WHISKERS

Bartender


When Jonathan left one of the biggest Juneau’s bars for a job at our bar desk, we couldn’t have been more delighted. All in all, whatever the cocktail that you’re ordering is – be sure that Johnny will make it lightning fast! Even, if he’s only about to invent one…

ALICIA BERNANZO

Senior Waitress


Alicia is our senior waitress, overseeing all other waiters and waitresses and keeping all of our hospitality crew intact! She’s such an energetic lady, that even 14 hours of full tables on the 4th of July do not stop her from smiling and meaning it…
