Today, El Indio is well-known around the world, having provided care packages to our soldiers while fighting in Vietnam and Desert Storm. Over the years, many local politicians in Congress have requested these “El Indio Care Packages” to be sent to Washington D.C. Even a couple of our presidents have had occasion to sample El Indio’s food while in the White House. The Honorable Pete Wilson, former mayor of San Diego, had many opportunities to enjoy El Indio’s food. We were honored to cater his first inauguration as governor of California.
