Mario Quiroz and Mara Garza met on a salsa dance floor, which somehow seems prophetic. For close to a decade, the two have been treating Wichitans to the culinary equivalent of that dance — passionate, earthy and above all delicious food.
They started in what can only be called humble circumstances: a somewhat decrepit former Taco Tico building along 21st street in north Wichita. Customers who braved the lack of air conditioning (or heat, depending on the season) found themselves enjoying standard Mexican dishes prepared with care but also some that were unknown in Wichita, such as the pirata (grilled tortillas stuffed with all sorts of goodness) and Mara’s vast array of house-made salsas.
