The Compton, Watts, and South Central LA area on Central Ave. was in the1960’s known for the affluent communities with American Blacks owning and operating many of the local businesses from food, entertainment, farming, and other industries. The Jones Legacy of “Taco Pete” begins with a pair of sisters Gladys and Garthea who were known as “South Central LA” best short order diner cooks. When the then owner of “Taco Pete” reached out to start a new brand of food, Black folks seasoned ground beef tacos and burritos. He entrusted them to come up with a one-of-a-kind recipe, and they did not disappoint. The recipe has been going for more than 50 plus years without ever being changed.
