Born and raised in Havana, Cuba on January 10th, 1983, Aldo Espinosa and his family come from a longstanding line of skilled artisans and entrepreneurs, who have used their knowledge, creativity and passion to succeed and generate wealth. Aldo arrived in the United States at the young age of 11 and rapidly developed a passion for barbecue as a teenager. His parents worked long hours, and he often experimented in the kitchen by himself. Espinosa didn't go to culinary school, but he managed to travel around the country trying different meat-cooking styles while holding several jobs in Miami's hospitality and nightlife industry.
In 2014, Espinosa set up a food truck in front of Florida International University's campus in Sweetwater with a menu based squarely on meat options. Served quickly and affordably, his offerings appealed to the local crowd, and the Cuban-American entrepreneur pressed ahead with his goal to make the half-million dollars he needed to open his own restaurant. His labor paid off. Today, his El Toro Loco Churrascaria Steakhouse has four brick-and-mortar locations, including the original on Tamiami Trail, which he runs with his sister, Mara. In addition to the original restaurant on Tamiami 8 ST, Espinosa's friends and family run brick-and-mortar franchises in Westchester, the Hammocks, and Kendall, and soon to be in Doral and Calle 8 Little Havana along with four food truck locations throughout South Florida.
