Dinner and Meal: Country Fare Cafe in Southeast Fresno

As for the unique name? Thirty years ago, they bought a place that served cookies, gravy, and fried chicken.

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) — “My husband, his mother started when they lived in Mexico. She was selling food outside her home.”

Jose Valadez serves up some of those same recipes at Country Fare Cafe in Belmont near Maple in southeast Fresno.

“He likes that people come because they like his food,” says owner Teresa Valadez. “That’s what makes him want to get up in the morning.”

In December, Teresa and Jose Valadez will celebrate their 30 years of activity.

“I’m very proud of my parents,” says their daughter, Veronica. “When I walk around Fresno and people point at me, they call me ‘Country Fare’ and it’s because of my parents.”

Jose made us try his chorizo ​​bean dip first.

Everything on the menu draws rave reviews.

Veronica Valadez once asked her dad to use flour tortillas to make his nachos.

The dish has become very popular.

“Flour tortillas are something special,” she said. “You don’t find them in very many places.”

Hard to find this kind of price.

The chicken enchilada combo plate was Thursday’s special and sells for $9.60.

As you can imagine, this popular spot can get crowded.

“People are standing here at the end of the hall,” Teresa said. “Outside. Some are waiting in their car.”
