In 1993, Ismael Villegas decided to follow his dream of opening his own business. After years of hard work and perseverance, he and his wife Silvia Villegas opened the doors to a small Mexican restaurant in Columbia. The restaurant is Casa Linda Mexican Restaurant. Ismael and Silvia served up authentic, fresh, hot and delicious food to as many customers as they could fit into their restaurant. With the help of their loyal customers Casa Linda has grown to four locations in Greater Columbia.
