Lesters Taco Shop Details
For over 20 years the Lopez family sold their Taco’s Al Pastor at a roadside stand in the city of Dario in Nicaragua. The morning began with making tortillas from ground cornmeal and flour with care not to make too many as every day fresh was the keyword. The meats were fresh from the neighborhood butcher and marinated in a secret mixture of chilies, fruit juices, and spices. The Pico De Gallo and various heat levels of salsa were made from vegetables that just yesterday were growing in the family garden
Soon, the word began to spread and what was once a mother and son business became a family all hands-on production just to keep up. Often times they were sold out before the dinner hour was complete, never cutting corners to sacrifice quality or the freshness of their product. Today, Lesters Tacos has expanded their menu to include other great Central American favorites such as burritos, bowls, and daily specialty entrees.
Quality Food A Fair Price – Lesters Taco Shop
A few times each summer, Mama Lopez visits Put-in-Bay to insure her namesake recipes are still being properly prepared. Freezers are a no-no as is any meat that has been treated with anything other than natural feed in a humane environment. We think she just really misses the grandkids who can often be found helping in the family kitchen or selling ice-cold bottles of water in front of Lesters Tacos
