EL Cholo

The three waiters

The three waiters pictured here were the main El Cholo waiters in the 1930s. The man on the left, Pedro, learned that his wife was flirting with a cook at El Cholo and showed up at his house to confront him with a gun. After a struggle Pedro lost control of the gun and was shot and killed. The police deemed it self-defense but the rest of El Cholo staff would not work with the cook anymore and he left to start his own restaurant El Amigo near El Cholo.
