About Us / El Chile y Cantina History: Critics rave about El Chile's Oaxacan red mole that blankets the roasted pork enchiladas. They dip one chip after another into the dark exotic salsa that won first place in the Austin Chronicle's Hot Sauce Contest. They smack their lips over the tres leches cake, a dessert so delicious that couples have requested it to be served at their weddings. \n\nOur Bolivian-born boss, Carlos Rivero, grew up in San Antonio where his passion for the food and service industry was first influenced by his grandfather's tortilla factory. In later years, he further sharpened his skills as he worked his way from waiter to general manager at Jeffrey's, a fine dining restaurant in Austin. El Chile grew out of a combination of all these influences and an understanding that, as owner Carlos Rivero says, "It's all about the food - making it from scratch with fresh ingredients."
