In 1993, Ismael Villegas finally fulfilled his dream of opening his own business. After years of hard work and perseverance, he and his wife Silvia Villegas opened the doors to a small Mexican restaurant in Columbia. That restaurant was Casa Linda Mexican Restaurant which would share authentic, fresh, hot and delicious food.
