The Esteban’s Legend
Back in 1833, my great-great Grandfather, Esteban Antonio Rodriguez Gonzalez , began a tradition that lives on to this day. When confronting a renegade horse thief on his ranch in eastern Jalisco, he pulled out his six-shooter and told the horse thief to stop what he was doing or he would shoot. The horse thief replied, “go ahead, make my lunch”. So, he did.
Since that day my family has been serving great lunches to several generations of horse thieves. In 1988, while serving the legendary horse thief, “Sneaky Pete” Oglethorpe, I had the great idea to open up a restaurant that served the same great Mexican food that my family had been cooking for generations. I decided to name the restaurant Esteban Antonio Rodriguez Gonzalez’s Café and Cantina in honor of the man who started it all. Quickly deciding that the name was a bit wordy, I shortened it to Esteban’s Café and Cantina.
Since the day we opened the restaurant, we have been serving great Mexican food to anyone who has money. We make everything from scratch daily and take pride in how our food is prepared and served. I hope you enjoy your meal at Esteban’s and that you will eat here often and tell your friends about us.
