Two Peas in a Pod!
It hasn't always been an easy road
for this dynamic duo.
It was tough for Ricardo and Santos
were kids in Mexico.
After much trauma and misfortune,
like losing a parent and not being able to find work,
they made the decision to come to the US.
Like so many today, the move was made out of necessity,
for survival. Their main goal was to work and
that is what they did.
It was grueling in the beginning.
They were grossly taken advantage of,
they were young, only 15.
They worked long hours for very little pay, but
these two cousins knew they could have more.
They found the right mentors at the right restaurant.
Ricardo easily mastered the english language and
quickly worked his way up to management.
the two were running the place.
They stuck together and
opened their own restaurant back in Indiana.
But alas, in 2007-2008 the economy
went down the tubes and so did the restaurant.
Ricardo had married a New Mexican,
and they made their way back home.
He opened a carpet cleaning company
and it thrived for many years.
However, the restaurant business was calling
the primos home.

top it off with love in their cooking and the restaurant.
