    Que en Paz Descanse el Señor Camarena.

    With all due respect to the Camarena family, please have a BIG-A$$ burrito or a BIG-A$$ gordita in his honor at one of the Arandas.

    Great story of hard work and perseverance! It's always good to hear of someone who triumphs over adversity! I haven't been to Arandas in a long time, but I remember it was always full (Irvington location) every time I went! I admire him for putting a picture of Jesus in every location (you don't have to agree with me), and not forgetting his roots of where he came from.

    Que en Paz Descanse Señor Camarena.....

    i was friends with this guys nephew cesar camerana. i know cesars side of the family owned the arandas off of mangum. last time i talked to him he was mentioning something about issues with the family and they ended up seperating from the arandas brand. they changed the name of their restaurant to pericos. yea but arandas are everywhere and mostly eveyrone has the same opinion, good drunk food that tastes microwaved..
