George Salisbury was eating dinner at EL CHOLO and meets Aurelia Borquez. the daughter of Alejandro and Rosa. They court, decide to marry and open their own EL CHOLO.  The space was a small storefront at 11th and Western. The original building had8 stools, 3 booths and a hot top stove on which they heat the tortillas on the top, melt the cheese enchiladas underneath (this stove is still on display in our lobby as the location on Western is still in the original location!)
