Save Casa Delicias!

Alexis Olvera
on behalf of Adrian Olvera
 HESPERIA, CA
In April 1981, Casa Delicias opened in Hesperia, California. It was first opened by Cecilia and Florentino Sanchez with a small menu of burritos, tacos, and tamales. Passed down to daughter Margarita and son in law Adrian Olvera, the two have put so much blood, sweat, and tears into making this restaurant a place that everyone calls home. From dollar Tuesdays, masa during the holidays, and thousands of catered parties and weddings, the Olvera's and Sanchez's have serviced the entire High Desert and most of Southern California. 

A few months ago Casa Delicias was served legal papers over a customer who had experienced distress over faded handicap parking painted lines, creating a lawsuit asking for $10,000. A court hearing to settle the issue will not even happen until December of 2017 and the entire lawsuit process will end up costing well over $20-30,000. From this economy, to losing their son, and the family fighting a battle of agressive cancer in their own home, a blow like this is threatening to close Casa Delicias for good. Casa Delicias has done its absolute best to cater to everyone, and would never ever want to cause anyone harm, distress, or hardship. They are actively working to clear up and fix the parking spaces, and will continue to make any improvements necessary to ensure the safety of their customers. We are asking that the entire community join together to help settle this suit, giving the customer exactly what they are asking for, and keep Casa's doors open before the cost of the suit grows any further. 

They have done so much for our community and I think giving back can be our ultimate way to say thank you! We have a goal of $11,000 to cover the lawsuit and GoFundMe fees. Adrian and Margarita haven't officially asked for help, but their children and family members wanted to find a way to help them, and through this account we believe together with the community we can achieve this! We want to say thank you to anyone who takes the time to spread the word and donate!

- My name is Alexis Olvera and I am from the high desert area. Adrian and Margarita Olvera are my in laws. We are raising this morning to go towards legal fees such as lawyers, filing fees, the total lawsuit amount, and ADA compliance fixes. Adrian Olvera was added as the recipient to these fees and will personally withdraw all fund donated! Thank you

DA is familiar with the "distressed guy". It's been on National news, this is all the guy does! Contact VV District Attorney and have this thrown out as a frivolous lawsuit! Good luck!

Looked up a web site, you should look into this! www.adaabuse.com! These guys are legal scammers, this has been going on for years. They got the business I use to work at & many more around the valley. All they do is take a picture of your parking lot & file a law suit! Good luck, offer them taco's instead of money!

This saddens me to hear of this happening to especially wonderful honest hard working people! I pray the community comes together and quickly raises the funds for this dilemma and much more since much more is obviously needed in helping them with the other personal hard ships they may be up against! Casa Delicias has been around forever and they should be in our City of Hesperia's registry of Historical Landmarks designated places to commerate Casa's Delicias dedication & contribution to our community and more so for their historical significance in providing our community with outstanding excellent quality service for many years! Casa Delicias also signifies the way of life & culture for the high desert residence before Hesperia was even a city. Casa Delicias is one of our community's all-time favorite and little whole in the wall places where our community needs to all come all together to support them during this time! Again, I pray the our local community opens up their hearts to help keep Casa Delicias open!

This is a family business, one that works extremely hard to give excellent service to their customers and with a smile. All High Desert customers need to stand behind this small business. I have seen the same thing happen in the small towns of Norther California closing most of the small businesses they attack! Most of the time it attacks bathroom access in old buildings that were built before all the handicapped laws were implemented. Most of those came from one man who made his living going after small businesses, because they didn't have the money to fight them. We all understand and agree the handicapped need and have a right to access, but there is a loophole in the law that allows them to use this for personal gain. Something like this should be a code enforcement notice, and the business should have been given a chance to make it right. I know there are customers who would have come to the rescue and helped re-paint the parking lines. There are many people who love this place, and not just on dollar Tuesday. This place has a fallowing. People stand in line for extended lengths of time to get their food. Please everyone step up to the plate and stand up for what's right. Let them know you love their food and their business!,

All one needs to do is look at the size of the Casa Delicias parking lot to realize what a frivolous lawsuit this is. There is more space between the closest parking space at Kmart, than even the farthest space from the entrance at Casa Delicias. Ridiculous. I wish them the best of luck.

I saw that on the News it crazy what he does. What does he need a perfect parking lot for is car to drive on I'm pretty sure he driven on worse other times. Lol or when he goes somewhere like an event and he has to park on the dirt that's not marked does he go an sue them also. So sorry to here.

I lived in the High Desert for 23 years and ate at Casa Delicias often. They have the most fantastic food, especially their pork tamales, carnitas tacos and carnitas nachos. A few years ago, I drove down to California for a visit and actually bought some tamales and a couple pounds of carnitas; transported in an Igloo and brought it home to the State of Washington (that is how good the food is). I would hate to see this place close over a "bogus" lawsuit.... grr
