The owners began making burgers, hot dogs, fries, and steak sandwiches. Eventually, the offerings morphed into something a little more true to Socorro’s Yucatecan roots: soft tacos and burritos stuffed with cochinita pibil and carne asada.
“I just did what I thought people would like. And they really liked it,” Socorro said in an interview with the Los Angeles Times.
“Socorro, 80, with short gray hair, a bright flowery shirt and perfect nails, sits where she always sits, on her bar stool, taking orders on paper plates and passing them to the cooks, who will return them loaded with tacos, burritos, hamburgers and Yucatecan tamales, ” says a Los Angeles Times report.
