Beto Rodarte. Chef Owner of Beto & Son
My guest is Chef Beto Rodarte. After being a corporate chef for over 20 years, in 2016, he opened Beto & Son, Next Generation Mexican Food, in Trinity Groves with his son Julian.
Beto was quite skeptical to leave a comfortable Director of Food & Beverage job at Brinker International to launch a new endeavor, but Julian enthusiasm and energy, took the leap of faith and made the move to launch to what now has become a staple in Dallas. Beto decided it was a great opportunity to introduce Julian Rodarte to entrepreneurs like Phil Romano.
Beto Rodarte graduated from the Culinary Institute of America in 1989 and headed to California to work for Hilton International at The Ojai Valley Inn & Country Club. A few years later, along with his wife, headed back to Texas to start a concept called Cozumel’s, tropical, not typical coastal Mexican cuisine. Brinker bought that concept and he moved to Dallas to became the Director of Food & Beverage for that concept.
