In October of 1994, we moved our family from Albuquerque, New Mexico, to Denver, Colorado, and opened a small family business known as The Chile Shop. Jack II and Diego, our sons, Desiree, our daughter, all made sacrifices to move to this fine town.
To supplement our income, we started catering at some of the local car dealerships. We then started to cook outside on a four-foot propane griddle on the weekends. Our customers demanded we open a restaurant. March 19th 2000, we opened the doors to Jack-n-Grill. Since then, our family has grown; we have two wonderful daughter-n-laws, Therese and Cheleste, Terence our son-in-law, and a great new adopted son, Eppie, who rounds out the bunch.
We are the proud grandparents of eight: Izabell, Jack III, Dezmond, Ana, Rudy, Dayliha, Iris, and Peyton. Our brother, Scott, also came on board to help serve you better. So please, visit any one of our family-owned restaurants, sit back, relax, have a cold beer, or try one of our great house margaritas. Most of all, enjoy the wonderful difference of our home-style cooking from New Mexico.
Our kids are an important part of our restaurant, all of them are currently working with us as well as their spouses, and one of the grandchildren. They all received their training from Jack himself! Our menu is inspired from generations of cooking within the family, as well as recipes from the owner's mother and grandmother.
