A little bit of history
Lisa’s Mexican Restaurant, owned and operated by Alicia Cendejas and her daughter Carla Ruiz, is a growing establishment located near the heart of downtown San Antonio.
Lisa’s has a history stretching back over 30 years with its original location on West Commerce. On August 6, 2007, Lisa’s opened its doors at its new expanded location at 815 Bandera Road. Due to Alicia’s constant dedication and incredible work ethic, Lisa’s has grown into the fine dining establishment it is today.
Alicia immigrated to the United States from Mexico City. As a single mother, she worked long hours to provide for her two children: Carla and Luis. Alicia’s remarkable devotion and determination earned her the position of general manager which allowed her to later fully earn ownership of Lisa’s.
