EL Cholo

Mike Love (of Beach Boys fame)

Mike Love (of Beach Boys fame) would come in with his family from the time he was a young kid and grew up eating at El Cholo. Ron Salisbury got to meet the Love’s and was dismayed the day he heard that Mike was going to start a band with his cousins. He felt sorry that a young bright kid was going to “throw away his life away” trying to be a musician. Well, Mike had other ideas and the Beach Boys shot to popularity in the early 1960s and became a staple of Southern California music.
