Buenos Dias from Sammy Montoya at La Chiquita. We had a delicious breakfast including tamales (Chicken, Beef or Pork available for the holidays). Sammy told us his history of coming to the United States in 1982 going to high school in Laguna Beach and starting to work at the White House as a dish washer. After fifteen years he was managing the place. In 1994 a customer at the White House approached Sammy to help keep La Chiquita open. Twelve patrons helped Sammy buy the restaurant. He paid half of them off in five years and the second half in ten years. The restaurant was started in 1950 and is the oldest authentic Mexican restaurant in Orange County.

Sammy has been married to his beautiful wife Maria for twenty nine years and they have two children going to college. He went into partnership buying The Green Parrot Villa ten years ago. Don’t miss their Sunday Brunch.

La Chiquita is open 11:30 am to 8:00 pm Monday – Saturday. They are famous for their Enchiladas, Chile Relleno and Sopes. He adds a new dish every year.

Sammy caters all kinds of Mexican parties including graduations, Christmas gatherings, funerals, quinceanera and weddings. He has catered parties up to 3300 in attendance. La Chiquita is available forprivatepartiesonSunday. Heshipshisfamous enchilada sauce and tamales all over the country.

It is obvious why Sammy has become so successful: hard work, great food and wonderful friendly service.

What People are Saying

In the past 42 years I have received many good leads that have become good clients.  Many of them are still clients of the firm I am with today (This represented 50% of the clients that I merged into the new firm).  I have used many past and current members for a reliable source of good and reputable suppliers for both business and personal needs, including several members that helped me make profitable investments over the years.

Hal Grimshaw, Belden Hiramoto Liu & Co., LLP

I joined EAOC because Phil Kintz asked me. At the time the cost and early meeting time was a concern. The first six months of membership I received and extra $6000 in volume.

Gary Gregg, Creating With Glass

I have been a member for many years in several different classifications. EAOC has always provided me with a steady flow of leads. However the biggest benefit I’ve received has been “outside” of the core purpose of leads. A past member John Valentine, mentioned to me that he had heard about some industrial land for sale in Costa Mesa. I ended up buying it, building a warehouse and running my business at the time (South Coast Stationers) there for about thirty years. It was an excellent investment.

Pete Sloan,

A lead from Past member Bob Hardman eight years ago resulted in $15,000 of business. A lead from Mel Smith eight years ago resulted in $25,000 of business. Benefits of membership include direct business from other members resulting in $10,000 in business and direct business with other members that resulted in excellent service and financial savings.

Carlos Salazar, Salazar Associates

I have built my entire business on leads from the EAOC. I started my association management firm in 1981 with one client EAOC. In the last thirty four years the business has grown to fourteen associations. We employ eleven full time and one part time employee. I can trace ten of my long term clients to referrals from EAOC that brings in over $500,000 annually. The network of present and passed members has had a tremendous impact on my life.

Gayle Stewart, Gayle Stewart Enterprises

EAOC has been a reliable source of steady business for me for about thirty years. Thank You EAOC!
