In 2000 Michael Balderas quit his job as a machinist for over 20 years. It paid well, but he wanted to follow his father Dan Balderas’s foot steps. Dan at 17 years of age joined the U.S. Army, working in food service for six years. Dan learned the ins and outs of cooking while furthering his education. He returned to the United States in 1952 and was stationed in Fort Hood. He was promoted to staff sergeant and became master in charge of the restaurant kitchen. Dan had dreams of owning a restaurant, so with the support of his beloved wife Connie, Dan started selling tacos from the trunk of his car in Round Rock, Texas. Dan & Connie’s name may be as iconic to longtime Round Rock residents as their restaurants.
