Friday October 13, 2023

As we close out Hispanic Heritage Month, celebrated annually September 15 through October 15 to highlight the important contributions of Latinos in America, we spotlight Debbie Portillo and Fernando Gonzalez, owners of the regionally acclaimed 2Fifty Texas BBQ that very soon will open right here in our Mount Vernon Triangle community.

Members of the American Culinary Corps, a U.S. State Department program that seeks to create ties with other nations through food, Debby and Frank were recently featured on NBC 4 Washington where they discussed their journey as small business owners and why their new downtown DC location is an important next chapter in fulfilling their American Dream.
