Stupak Looks Back

2012_alex_stupak_123.jpgAlex Stupak explains what he changed at the first Empellon: "When we first opened we tried to be all things to all people. And maybe because I was a newcomer and I'm not talented enough of a Mexican cook yet I couldn't do all these different things well...So we more or less eliminated as much as we could, which was easy because people were not ordering elsewhere on our menu—they were ordering tacos."
