-The Tico's Family



The Original Tico's Tacos was opened back in 1957 in San Jose, Ca by Luis Hevia. Years later he and his wife Claudia decided to move to Gilroy, Ca where the opened another restaurant Vallarta's. They had that restaurant for some years but knew Gilroy wasn't home. They went down to Salinas and found the perfect building to call their own. Tico's Tacos has been standing in Salinas, Ca since July 1980! Luis has since passed away but his legacy has been kept alive through his wife Claudia and his daughter Danielle close behind.
