From their website:
Oscar & Josephine Medina opened Zacatecas Café in 1963 on the corner of Park and University Avenues. The Mexican eatery consisted of three tables and twelve barstools that faced the open hot kitchen – there was no air conditioning. Back then there was a loud jukebox, and a public telephone that hung over one of the tables. Sometimes the noise and heat were overwhelming, but that didn’t stop the crowds that formed during the lunch hour. You could sit at the counter and watch Josie cook menudo or discuss politics with Oscar. Throughout the years the café has been featured in many newspapers and magazines. In 1985 the café moved two blocks to it’s current location. It’s still the hottest Mexican restaurant in town! Now 2 towns in 2014 they introduced in the city of Banning Zacatecas Cafe.
