Key Staff


Heath Bowen

Operating Partner

It is safe to say Heath has a love for the restaurant world. When he isn't working at Taco Mamacita, he is cooking and smoking meat. His favorite word is fudge, and least favorite word is mayo. When he isn't working, cooking or reciting trivia, he is hanging out with his family, consisting of his wife and three pups: Moose, Diggy and Winston.


Erick Lopez

Kitchen Manager

"Vamonos, vamonos, vamonos!!" is Erick's life motto. He is always ready to get stuff done and work hard. He prides himself on being able to dice food with his eyes closed. Risky business! When he isn't slamming tacos in the kitchen at Taco Mamacita, he is getting his heart rate pumping by playing soccer or going to the gym. His family means the world to him and he enjoys hanging out with them on his days off. 


Hannah Cecil

General Manager


Josh Rye

Assistant General Manager

"You can rob me with a cotton ball. I hate the texture of a cotton ball. I can juggle, just not cotton balls. I had my jaw wired shut for six, and that still didn't shut me up." These random facts Josh stated about himself do a good job of showing his ability to make everyone laugh. He has worked in the restaurant world for the past twenty years. When he is off the clock he is known as "Fahza" and is more than likely hanging out with his three kids playing extreme dodge ball.
