"It is not with a heavy heart, but a grateful and appreciative one"
The pandemic has stifled the productivity of many restaurants and bars, and the same goes for food trucks, which rely on setting up shop in front of other businesses.
Now, after a few years of serving late-night bites in front of Che’s Lounge and numerous other spots around Tucson, Geronimo’s Revenge has officially closed up shop.
Owner and executive chef Mo Madril opened up Geronimo’s Revenge back in 2017, but got its start as pop-ups inside of Che’s Lounge on Fourth Avenue.
“You all have been so supportive from the get-go and we never would have been able to do this without that love,” said Madril on Instagram. “I saw a dream come to fruition that led me to pivotal moments in my life, including being personally invited to China through UNESCO to showcase cuisine that is unique to Tucson.”
Most recently, about a year ago to be exact, Madril competed on the Food Network television show “Guy’s Grocery Games” and ended up winning.
“For now, it’s time to move on,” said Madril, “but that doesn’t mean I’m going to stop cooking or that I won’t be around for something else in the future.”
As for now, he’s selling his food truck, making it available for anyone else that would like to pursue their dreams of filling the grateful bellies of hungry Tucsonans.
