56 years of service

Our lovely server Beatriz Valenzuela. This photo is in our fireplace room in our original Western location. She started with us in 1946 and retired in 2002, 56 years of service with El Cholo. Her bright smile was appreciated by guests, she was always very sweet and never flustered. She made mistakes, as everyone does but picked herself up and continued to run her stations with the best of them. The guests loved how she recovered from her mistakes. She loved the big flowey traditional gowns and is truly a staple in our El Cholo story. The station in our Western location was named after her and we still have a shadow box of her lovely, unique hair combs.
