Brand history

The history of this restaurant starts back in the 2000s with JD and Sarah Gardner after they had a usual vacation to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. This town is located on the south point of Mexico’s Baja California peninsula and is famous for its great surf and sea, amazing beaches, and tasty cuisine. Once they returned from vacation, JD and Sarah Gardner started to dream about bringing back home the Mexican atmosphere.
