Luis’s Taqueria was founded by Luis and Luisa Quintero. The couple moved to California from Michoacan, Mexico, in pursuit of a better life. Luis worked in various jobs from the California fields to construction to a Dairy just to name a few. Luisa always helped by working seasonal field work and then as the children came along she became a stay home mom. But it wasn’t until September of 1989 that the couple decided to move to Oregon. Desperate to have something of their own they decide to open a Mexican Bakery in Newberg, Oregon. It was a small grocery store but also sold food to-go. Their menu wasn’t as extensive as it is now, but it was a start they always said.
