THIS IS OUR STORY

n May 1993, MCA/Universal opened Universal City Walk, originating from Universal’s first theme park, Universal Studios Hollywood. City Walk was the first of its kind worldwide, serving as a self-contained entertainment district featuring shopping, eateries and other entertainment venues. In need of a traditional Mexican restaurant, that would be owned and operated by local ownership, MCA/Universal’s chief and legendary Hollywood executive Lew Wasserman sought out Mr. Camacho. In fact, in a production meeting to discuss the construction of City Walk, Mr. Wasserman turned to Mr. Camacho and suggested the name “Camacho’s Cantina.” From that point on, the now famous restaurant had an identity. Soon after its opening, Camacho’s Cantina became one of the most well known Mexican restaurants in California.
