Sheri Garza catered for many years before stepping into the restaurant business. She said, “It's been really good, definitely a journey. We used all our savings and retirement money to open it. The first night we had a line out the door, but after that, we had months where it was so slow I cried. We made it though, we learned from our mistakes and the customers started coming again.” Costumers have continued to come to Madres' for good food and a sense of community. The Garza family has come up with a week of specials and activities to thank the Forney community for their support through the years. Discounts, freebies, contests, and even a night with free beers and margaritas with food purchases are planned for August 27 through September 1.
