What is your name?
Where are you from?
Veracruz — but I became a citizen last year.
Why do you like working at Big Boys Bar and Grill?
The good food, atmosphere, good friends and we have a lot of locals. I just love my job.
What are your favorite dishes at Big Boys Bar and Grill?
California Chicken Sandwich, Mushroom Swiss and the new barbecue ribs. The barbecue ribs are awesome. We get a lot of compliments on those.
What is your favorite drink to make?
Pink Floyd and the Blue Hawaiian, and of course the Sexy Mama which is my favorite.
What do you enjoy about bartending?
My favorite part is the challenge, meeting new people and making everyone comfortable. I want people to come in and say, ‘I like this bar, I like this bartender, and she’s awesome.’ I get a lot of compliments.
What do you least like about bartending?
It’s difficult when there are so many people and I want to serve everyone at the same time but I can’t.
If you could make a drink for anyone, living or dead, celebrity or historical figure, who would it be and what would you make?
It all depends on the person. Some like strong drinks or sweet drinks, it just depends.
