Hector Jimenez, co-owner, grew up in Mexico and came to the United States in 1987. He moved to Milwaukee in 1993, and soon after opened Azteca, his first Mexican restaurant, on Milwaukee’s South side. One of 11 children, Hector grew up on a Tequila Agave farm in Mexico City. Growing up on a Tequila Agave farm, it’s no wonder our margaritas are so popular!
After meeting his partner, Chris Greene, in 2003, the two worked hard on the concept of a new restaurant, and opened La Chimenea Germantown in March, 2005.
