Lunch at the original Garcia's

family wedding
After an amazing tour of Amazon Fulfillment Center on Wed, January 14, the Historical League had a delicious lunch at the original Garcia's restaurant on 35th Ave, north of McDowell in Phoenix. Tony Garcia, son of the original owners, spoke about his mother and father with their close ties to the community. He grew up in the area around the restaurant attending neighborhood pot luck dinners. The dishes his mother brought were very popular with the community. After much encouragement about the food and recipes, his mother decided to open a local restaurant.
Thanks again to Linda Fritsch and Lindy Isacksen for organizing such a wonderful tour and lunch.
