El GALLO GIRO
Authentic Mexican Cuisine
El Gallo Giro is a rooster - a white feather rooster. In cock-fights there is usually a red rooster and a white rooster. Legend says that a long time ago in Mexico, there was a champion white rooster, a Gallo Giro, who won many fights. He became very famous and few roosters could win against it. In the 60's, a movie was made about it, and an actor named Luis Aguilar played one of the main characters. He became famous and people called him "Gallo Giro" for his role in the movie. Luis Aguilar passed away in 1998 of heart problems, but he is remembered today thanks to the El Gallo Giro movie.
In Boise, the Prado Family, originally from the state of Michoacan, Mexico, opened this restaurant on August 20, 1997 with the idea of having the most Authentic Mexican Restaurant in Idaho. We chose the name "El Gallo Giro" for its authenticity.
