Mission, Vision, Values

Guacamole Mex Grill is a family owned and operated Mexican restaurant located in the University City / South West Philadelphia area!  The restaurant is managed daily by Beatriz de Luna and her daughter in law, Alla de Luna.  In 2015, Guacamole Mex Grill expanded its operations into The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. We might be growing but we're still a small family business so everyone (Rafael de Luna Jr. (Husband & El Jefe), Anna and Roman de Luna (Grand Children) from time to time have to pitch in.  The family restaurant was designed by her son Rudy and constructed by her two oldest sons, Rafael de Luna III & Ronaldo de Luna.

You can't tell the story of El Guaco Loco without telling the story of their sister restaurant first! The de Luna family migrated to Philadelphia from Houston TX in 2003 with dreams of one day opening a Mexican restaurant. Beatriz de Luna's family had been in the mole business for over 50 years in Jilotepec, Mexico and it was her dream to introduce her family's mole to the US. In 2006 the de Luna family purchased a building in South West Philly where their future restaurant, Guacamole Mex Grill, would be established.  After a few years of planning and saving the luchador taco truck was born.
