Hi, I’m Esequiel. Also known as Mr. Zeke. I’ve been a part of the Pinetop/Lakeside community since 1994. My first job in 1994 was as a dishwasher in the Farmer Dunn’s restaurant in Pinetop, AZ. The Dunn family guided me and introduced me to the restaurant world. Since I stepped foot into their kitchen, my life dream became to open up my own restaurant. I had the honor to work at various restaurants with highly influential coworkers throughout the years. One of the most motivating role models I’ve had over the years is Jineane Ford. She was the owner of Mama Bear’s and to this day continues to be one of the most successful women I know. These are only a few of the many people that have made an impact in my life. I’m thankful to my family, friends, and the White Mountain community for always being supportive. I am excited for this new journey.
