Ale Torres is the executive chef at J&R Tacos and she has been at the restaurant since the day we opened. She believes that produce from our restaurant should be purchased from local farmers since this will not only help our local economy but it will also ensure a taste of freshness in all our dishes. She is the creator of many of our signature dishes and desserts.
