“Terrible mix of something not mexican”

Don Julio Mexican Kitchen & Tequila Bar Lake Mary
Ranked #19 of 150 Restaurants in Lake Mary
Description: The story of Don Julio reflects a family tradition in the world of traditional Mexican cuisine, which comes from the great-grandparents of the current generation of the family. In 1975, Don Sacramento Rodriguez opened one of the first Mexican restaurants in the United States, in the city of Athens, GA. There he developed from the hands of his wife Josephine (Doña Pepa) the most delicious recipes brought from his native Jalisco. This restaurant was called “El Azteca”. Today, Don Julio Mexican Kitchen and Don Julio Mexican Grill continues this tradition in the region of Central Florida, with its current locations in Orlando and Lake Mary, with the Chef Jesus Roman, who also develop recipes Doña Pepa with his own touch, and of course on the menu included their own creations.
