Tera and Jose met as teenagers in Orange County, CA. They moved to Pittsburgh in 2000 with their children, Anthony and Alonzo. In 2022 they relocated to Anna Maria island to continue their journey as restaurant owners.
Tera and Jose began selling homemade salsas at local farmer's markets. In 2008 they opened Los Chiludos in a small, inconspicuous building in Canonsburg, PA. Two years later, they expanded and moved into a larger building in a business park nearby. They became the #1 Mexican restaurant in Washington County, PA and were consistently top 3 in Pittsburgh, PA.
In 2015 the Lemus family visited Anna Maria Island for the first time and fell in love with the area and the people. As soon as the opportunity presented itself for the family to relocate to the island, they moved and began construction for their new restaurant in March of 2022.
Jose was born in Mexico City, Mexico and moved to Orange County, CA at the age of 15. He has been in the restaurant industry since he was 17 and fell in love with the kitchen during training as a restaurant manager. He incorporates traditional Mexican flavors with a fresh, healthier Southern California twist. He dreams to one day open multiple locations with his wife and two sons.
