Places 2 Check Out: Macho Tequila's

Posted: Updated:

A new restaurant in Sparks might look familiar. It used to be home to Birtha Mirandas. And while some of the light fixtures are the same, everything else is now unique to Macho Tequila's Homestyle Mexican Restaurant. It's a new restaurant owned by father-son team, Dannyboy Galabiz and Ricky Gutierrez. In fact, it's just these two. That's it.

"I'm the bartender, waiter, server, everything. Dishwasher as well, when I have time. My dad, he does all the cooking all the preparation and we do everything fresh every single day," says Ricky.

Including their spicy green and milder red salsas. Dannyboy puts a ton of spices into a blender. Including cloves for a special twist. And then blends it up to the perfect consistency. "My secret is love. My heart. I make everything with my heart."

While Dannyboy whips up his creations in the kitchen, like shrimp enchiladas with homemade beans and white vegetable garlic rice, Ricky races to deliver the food. Macho Tequila's has been a labor of love for this duo. They re-wired, remodeled and re-decorated this space on the corner of Greenbrae and Sullivan. And they're also re-doing the way Mexican food is made.

"We do not use trans fats. We don't use lard. We try to be as healthy as we can. Other than that we try to do something a little different with our food as well. He puts in a lot of his recipes from way back in the day."

Dannyboy has been a chef for more than 20 years. Plus, his family owns a food truck in Mexico. So this family knows authentic homemade Mexican food. And now you can too at Macho Tequila's.

Macho Tequila's is located at 2144 Greenbrae Drive with a cross street of Sullivan inside the Sierra Shopping Center. It's open from 10am to 10pm daily.

Plus, in the next few months, they're going to start making their own tequila marinated with jalapenos.  So something to look forward to in the spring.
