Specializing in fresh homemade, Mexican cuisine, Los Charros’ kitchen is overseen by Juanita Vazquez. Juanita grew up in Acapulco and lived in Mexico City and Cancun. A consummate student of the Mexican tradition, Juanita toured Mexico for 16 years and developed exceptional proficiency with the culture, folklore dances and cooking styles from the Aztec west coast to Mayan east coast of Mexico. She prides herself on the fresh preparation of pre-Columbian and classic Mexican dishes that native Mexicans enjoy; neither too heavy nor over-spiced. For “Americanized” fare, Juanita collaborates with her "Gringo", Timo, a restaurateur with experience at trendy restaurants in Florida, Tennessee and Texas. Together with our island cooks, the Los Charros team guarantees the finest in authentic Mexican cuisine, popular Tex-Mex specialties and local island fare.
