Las Delicias Café during "Fiesta Days," 1946. Antonio Regalado Calvo and Maria de la Luz Mendez Calvo were immigrants from Sonora, Mexico. They married in 1926 and started their own business selling Mexican food to workers in local packing houses. As the business grew, Antonio and Luz were eventually able to open a small restaurant, Las Delicias Café, on 1118 Pico Street in downtown San Fernando.

The famous old Casa Verdugo restaurant in 1910, "out Glendale Way." Today it’s just a house, albeit a charming house on an innocuous street in the innocuous L.A. bedroom community of Glendale. These days, passersby might not even give it a second glance, but in the first years of the 20th Century this little house was one of the most famous restaurants in the West, a mecca for visitors from around the world - It was the renowned Casa Verdugo, an eatery par excellence from days long since past.
