Our Story My love of Mexican food began in 1994 when John Sedlar, one of the godfathers of Mexican food in the U.S., called asking for help opening Abiquiu, named after his childhood home in New Mexico. Sedlar, along with chefs such as Mark Miller, Stephan Pyles, Robert Del Grande and Dean Fearing, were at the forefront of a movement to embrace regional American cuisine. Sedlar said, “We'd started to ask ourselves, what is American food? Why are we such Europhiles?” From this experience, my respect for Mexican culture and cuisine grew resulting in two decades worth of travel and discovery. My wife says I get a goofy smile the minute I cross the border. No doubt. I leave my problems behind and immerse myself in a culture based on joy, a sense of humor, intense flavor and an appreciation for its sense of place. So, when the right opportunity to explore this passion in San Diego presented itself, my partners, George Hauer and April Johnson of George's at the Cove, knew it would be a worthwhile endeavor. With Galaxy Taco, my goal is to translate my appreciation of Mexican food through a San Diego lens. I want to create a dining experience that is fun and where the only thing we take seriously is the quality of our ingredients and you having a good time. We want your food to be delicious and thoughtful which is why we grind our masa daily, from non-GMO heirloom corn (sourced from Masienda Mexican landrace corn), for our housemade tortillas. We also want you to have a good drink in your hand which is why our variety of mezcals and tequilas is among the largest in San Diego, with 90% of tequilas either organic or from family-owned companies. Above all, we want Galaxy Taco to be a neighborhood spot serving good, solid Mexican food you'll enjoy and which we're proud to serve you. We hope you'll join us. Cheers, Trey
