Lalo's On Maxwell

Thanks for your continued and invaluable support.

Not just Tacos

Not long ago, the average person regarded Mexican Food as being limited to tacos, enchiladas and mouth-boiling salsas. Few people were actually aware of the vast array of sauces, spices, and flavors that make the Mexican cuisine so unique. For nearly thirty years, Lalo’s Restaurants has taken pride in bringing this refined cuisine to Chicago. Lalo’s traces it’s roots to a small 24 seat restaurant located in the heart of Chicago’s Mexican Community. By following a strict policy of only serving top quality, authentic dishes; that small restaurant steadily grew in popularity. Soon, this location became too small to serve the needs of its existing clientele. Lalo’s soon expanded to a full-sized restaurant just two blocks away. By establishing the same food systems and serving the same traditional Mexican dishes (all of which were adopted from family recipes) the restaurant was able to gain more customers. In fact, demand was so big in this area that another unit was opened less than a mile away. For the next nine years, Lalo’s Restaurant solely operated from those two units.

Knowing that many new customers were venturing from suburbs such as Cicero, Oak Park, Berwyn, and Bolingbrook the time seemed right to open a new restaurant in the suburbs. In 1984, a new Lalo’s was opened in Cicero, Illinois. Sure enough, the new restaurant became an instant success. In fact, not only did this new Cicero location become the busiest restaurant on that section of Cermak road, but the restaurant soon expanded to the building next door, thus doubling the seating capacity. Today, there are a total of 12 units both in the city and the suburbs. Including Lalo’s On Maxwell!!! Although there have been several franchise proposals, the restaurants still remain entirely family owned. Lalo’s restaurant is looking for continued growth in the future. Whatever the future holds, Lalo’s has pledged to always serve the same original recipes that have made it a Chicagoland tradition.

PR.com wrote, On Wednesday, August 13th, Pastor Choco of New Life Covenant Church, Parents for Peace and Justice, city officials, politicians, organizations and international Latino author/civic leader Robert Renteria will join forces. In an effort to stop violence in Chicago, the coalition of groups will participate in The Walk for Peace.

“Mr. Renteria is our only author who has developed anti-violence and youth initiatives,” stated Fran Briggs, eMediaCampaigns!’ Director of Operations. “He continues to be recognized for his effectiveness on these issues.” Amate Visited Robert Live

“We use money to support wars, but neglect to feed the poor. People are walking around in a culture of darkness and we need to do something about it,” stated a passionate Robert Renteria. “Enough panel discussions talking about gang violence and statistics. As leaders, it’s time to walk the walk and bring a solution to these issues because that’s what leadership is all about. The ultimate weapon is not a loaded gun, but an educated mind.”

At-Risk-Initative

Chicago is recognized by the FBI as the murder capitol of the nation.

“It’s important that we stand in the gap for our brothers and sisters who are victims of the violence plaguing our communities,” stated Pastor Choco. “We are a beacon of light in the darkest places which helps bring love and joy from the Lord to all. This march is not only in remembrance of those we lost to violence, but a rally cry to end the violence and bring forth peace and hope.” AmateAhora - Barrio Books

Pastor Choco sponsored more than 500 copies of “From the Barrio to the Board Room 2nd edition”, “Mi Barrio and Little Barrio.” The books are part of a bilingual book series written by author Robert Renteria. They will be distributed during The Walk for Peace. Up to 2,000 people are expected to participate.

Organizers stated that a changing world calls for children, teens, and at-risk youth to be given the tools designed to help them make effective life choices, and give them a symbol of hope. ROBERTwAmateAhora

Renteria added that “the problem-solving process is to recognize the problem, find a solution and take action.” He was inspired to write Barrio books and developed a school and faith-based curricula to help kids with their critical thinking skills, and help schools bridge the educational gap.

Robert Renteria offers teaching tools for schools and organizations working towards ending gangs and gun violence and is available for national speaking tours.
