Lisa’s has a history stretching back over 30 years

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.

Lisa’s was a breakfast and lunch favorite in the West side of San Antonio for many years. Families and friends knew it as  “Lisa’s on Commerce”. The small, low-key atmosphere catered mainly to local families. It was Alicia’s charisma and innovation later on that allowed Lisa’s to grow into the full service restaurant and bar it is today.

The true secret behind Lisa’s steady achievement is unquestionably Alicia’s unique management style. Her first priority has always been impeccable customer service because Alicia possesses an amazing ability to make each and every customer feel welcome and important.
