A horde of squirrels invaded the people’s houses. They were eating all the food, but the worst part was that they were smashing and dropping everything around. But thanks to our prayers to Saint Francis, a new restaurant with delicious food was opened in our town. So the squeamish squirrels lost their interest in our houses and went to destroy the restaurant.

The mariachi singer Juan Jose Ruiz came to perform in a restaurant while being drunk. The audience got angry and started to throw food at him. He was hit in the eye. He thanks Saint Pancras for the recovery and promises to be more professional.

I came from Tepeaca, Puebla, to the United States full of dreams and hopes for a better life for me and my family. I’m infinitely grateful to the Virgin of Guadalupe because I found a good job as a dishwasher in a famous restaurant in New York via a fellow countryman. May you be blessed.

My restaurant is always full because I am, in all modesty, a great cook. But when I close my place at night, here come my favorite clients—stray cats from the neighborhood. I give them milk and feed them with the leftovers. I thank Saint Francis because during the day I earn money and get praised for my dishes and during the night I receive gratitude and caress.

Catalina Ramirez brings this retablo to Saint Francis thanking for getting a job in an erotic restaurant. She has fun and gets good tips.

My small tavern is always full because I am, in all modesty, a terrific cook. But when I close my place at night, here come my favorite clients—stray dogs.I feed them with the leftovers. I thank Saint Francis because during the day I earn money and get praised for my dishes and during the night I receive gratitude and caress.

The doña Paca’s tavern was very popular until one day a new joint opened up near by. They had a jukebox and offered free soft drinks and bread to the meal. Nobody came to doña Paca anymore. She was desperate, so she entrusted herself to Saint Francis. And a miracle happened right before her eyes. Giant cockroaches came from a garbage can and went in a line to the new tavern. So now the people prefer the doña Paca’s tavern again. She thanks her saint promoter.

Eduviges Guerrero enjoyed her long hair. But one day it got caught in a fan while she was eating a mole in a tavern. She thanks Saint Charbel for nothing serious happened and she only made a laughing stock of herself.

Virgin of Mercy, I thank you. Although there is no knowing when the works on avenue Masaryk will end and, therefore, nobody can enter my restaurant, I was able pay salaries to my staff when I found an Aztec pot and sold it to the Zona Maco [art gallery].

I give many thanks and dedicate this retablo to the Virgin of Carmen because my restaurant was going to be bankrupt when I got an idea to prepare a new dish with ground beef, potatoes, poblano pepper, tripe and vegetables. I put a price of 5 pesos on it, drink and coffee included. Now we can’t stop cooking, and we have became the most famous restaurant in the whole Queretaro. Thanks.
