Mt. Signal Cafe - "puffy" quesadillas

Yes, as I mentioned, my brother Guale/Lupe loves the Special Quesadillas so much, that he even takes some to his friend "MATT" from Las Vegas.

Mt. Signal Cafe - "puffy" quesadillas

Going back to the "Special Quesadillas", yes, there's still a couple of restaurants in the Imperial County who still makes them. My mother retired as a cook from Celia's restaurant located at the intersection of Imperial and Adams Ave in El Centro CA. She used to make these "Special Quesadillas". My mother tells me that she used to make approximately 200 quesadillas every four days for daily customers. When Celia's restaurant first started, she and her husband Oscar opened up at 808 N. Imperial Ave. El Centro, next to Chief's Auto parts. But before it was called Celia's Restaurant, it was called Monico's Restaurant and that's where my mother started working and met Celia as a waitress. Now, my mother as a retiree, she still makes them here at home for my whole family and friends when ever we have parties, and I'll tell you, "they are so good".
My brother Guale loves them!!!!

And going back to the old "La Hacienda Restaurant" located at the Airport, Mr. Raul Caro (who already passed away) used to be the owner, and Rosa Caro was his wife. They used to make these quesadillas there as well, and Celia used to be a waitress there. Anyway, if you're passing through the Imperial County and want a taste of my mother's "Special Quesadillas" just let me know.
