If you know Taco Guild, you know Sam Cavallaro. His warmth and passion for great food and creating memorable dining experiences are felt in everything we do. In the words of Dan Santos, our Operations Manager “he is truly the heart of Taco Guild.” With heart and gusto, Sam has led us to great success. He joined us in 2015 as a Bar Manager and quickly set out to establish ours as one of the most extensive tequila collections in Phoenix. Extensive, the collection is documented in our exclusive Tequila Bible, which has been known to elicit a ‘Hallelujah’ (or two).
Earlier this year Sam was asked to take on the Hospitality Manager position where his passion for supporting local and community-driven initiatives has led to fruitful partnerships with beloved Arizona brands and business opportunities that position the restaurant for continued success.
His tireless commitment to shining a spotlight on the celebrated work of Chef Lujan and her team, as well as highlighting Taco Guild’s brunch menu have led many of us to find the restaurant for the first time – enough reason to stop by and join us in celebrating him on his success. Knowing Sam, he may just come over and sit with you to learn more about your passions, while also sharing a bit of history about our church, Phoenix’s culinary scene, or the anatomy of the perfect cocktail.
