Tina Avalos

Restaurant Manager

Tina Avalos

I have over thirty years experience in the hospitality industry.  I believe in going the extra mile and creating special moments for each and every customer that walks through the door.  Attention to detail is key and anticipating customer needs is so important.  I have only worked for Lussmanns for a short time but feel that the way that the staff are trained fits in perfectly with this ideal.

I also firmly believe that we should all do our best to protect the environment that we live in and am very proud to work in a restaurant whose owners have the same core values.
