boost the Mexican flair on White Rock's Marine Drive Strip.
Mexican Grill has carved a spot in B.C.'s restaurant history. The
original restaurant ws founded by Primo Villanueva, Joel's Grandfather,
a Mexican American football player who suited up fr the BC Lions.
an inductee in the BC Restaurant Hall of Fame, sold the restaurant to
his son in the 90's , who eventually turned it over to Joel.
Villanueva's said one reason they chose White Rock to open up Primo's
Mexican Grill was because it reminded them of North Vancouver .
