Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and nothing says “I love you, Mom” like tacos and flowers from Danny Trejo.
The iconic actor opened his first restaurant in Los Angeles called “Trejos Tacos.” Since then, he’s expanded to numerous locations. He’s also taken on other business ventures such as Trejo’s Coffee and Donuts.
Trejo is an Angeleno through and through. He was born in Echo Park and raised in San Fernando Valley. He has dedicated much of his time and career to giving back to the community that raised him. “Everything good that happened to me has happened as a direct result of helping someone else,” Trejo said on his Instagram. From supporting local L.A. organizations to serving as a drug counselor, and even donating meals, he always puts his community first.
In another way of connecting with his fellow Angelenos, the legend Danny Trejo himself will be at Trejo’s Tacos in Santa Monica in celebration of the upcoming Mother’s Day. He will personally be handing out flowers on Saturday, May 7th from 12P.M to 2P.M.
Location: Trejos Tacos, 316 Santa Monica Blvd, Santa Monica, CA 90401
