HESPERIA – A 35-year-old Victor Valley area restaurant is at risk of being shut down in the near future due to recent setbacks. Casa Delicias opened in 1981 in the City of Hesperia and has been known for their delicious Mexican Food including burritos, tacos, and tamales. With an amazingly high 4.6 out of 5 Google rating, this restaurant well-loved and appreciated by its customers throughout the High Desert.
Several years after opening, the original owners, Cecilia and Florentino Sanchez passed the business on to their daughter and her husband Margarita and Adrian Olvera. The family-owned business grew to be known and loved throughout the High Desert and beyond. “Their food is amazing. When I first saw the place, I was not too sure about trying it, but once I did, I loved it,” said Rocio Del Pilar Martinez.
The restaurant has had several setbacks recently including the loss of a son, medical problems, and now a lawsuit. The lawsuit against the restaurant, according to daughter-in-law Alexis Olvera, is seeking $10,000 in damages for distress caused to a customer due to faded lines on the handicap parking. “My husband and I sat down with his sister we knew that if we fought this all the way to the hearing that the costs would go well over $20-30 thousand dollars,” said Alexis. “We are also battling cancer in the family so with medical bills and this lawsuit they are tossing around options of bankruptcy and closing shop.”
The family has been working on remedying the situation by fixing the space lines and making any other necessary improvements. ““Casa Delicias has done its absolute best to cater to everyone, and would never ever want to cause anyone harm, distress, or hardship,” Alexis added. The family would like to settle the lawsuit now before the cost goes any higher. They want to just move forward to continue serving the community by bringing them delicious and affordable Mexican food. “I hope this family doesn’t lose their business, my family has been buying food and Masa from here for decades,” said Crystine Flores.
Although she said that the family did not ask for help, Alexis Olvera has started a Go Fund Me account to help her in-laws raise the money needed to put this lawsuit behind them. “They have done so much for our community and I think giving back can be our ultimate way to say thank you,” said Alexis. They are trying to raise $11,000 in order to cover damages requested by the customer and to pay the Go Fund Me fees.
