Her HeartStory…
After attending an American Heart Association Conference. She met WomenHeart, shared her family’s story, and was selected as a National Spokeswoman for HeartHealth specifically for the Hispanic/Latino Market. WomenHeart, The National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease is a non-profit patient advocacy organization that supports, educates and advocates on behalf of the 42 million American women living with or at risk of heart disease, the #1 killer of women. For more information visit http://www.womenheart.org/

Thanks to WomenHeart, insisting she see a Cardiologist, they saved her life. Fall 2014 she was first detected with a Heart Murmur, later diagnosed with Valvular Regurgitation aka “Leaky Valves”. It’s a condition where the valves don’t close properly making her heart work harder. Now Leticia has her own heart story. Speaking as a caregiver and advocate now patient heart champion.

Sharing her HeartStory Nationwide…
Leticia Madrigal MA, National Spokesperson for WomenHeart teamed up with a stellar lineup including a bilingual Cardiologist, Fitness Instructor, and bilingual Blood Pressure Screener for the HeartOfFitnessTour para La Mujer Hispana all in the name of Heart Health thanks to Burlington.

Mujeres Hispanas Están en Mayor Riesgo…

Un reciente estudio indica que por lo menos el 71% de las mujeres hispanas tienen por lo menos un factor de riesgo asociado con enfermedades cardiacas.

Knowing is Not Enough…
Thought she was protected from heart disease, due to her healthy lifestyle, but quickly learned that every woman is at risk. Leticia urges you to be your family’s Heart Health Champion.

Lalo's On Maxwell

Hands down the best service, team, bartenders, administration! Heartfelt thanks to the Thursday Night Bartender Crew! Safe Kept my IPhone! Mil gracias Alex Cabrera, Benjamin Modragon, Lalo’s On Maxwell, and Chef Enrique Cortes you have been our exceptionally generous sponsors since we launched ÁmateAhora! 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.

Lalo's On Maxwell

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.
