My first success there was meeting my wife and having a family. I was then determined to do better than factory work, and began searching for an opportunity to open a restaurant.

We made our way to Redding

We made our way to Redding
We have served many customers for nearly 15 years, and I feel like I have known them my whole life. We want to thank them now for their continuous support and love. It has been a great honor and privilege to serve the community of Redding a small piece of my home, and hope to continue to grow the Gordo Familia members one stomach at a time.
