In the summer of 89’ Tony and Artemisa Sesma decided to take part in the American Dream and become owners of their economic destiny. Decades of experience in fine dining and a lifetime of exposure to the powerful and decadent flavors of Mexican cooking gave birth to Guacamoles! On November 1st 1990 Guacamoles opened its welcoming doors for business and a star was born! “We had to run to the market to get meats, we ran out so fast…” quotes Tony as he recalled those first crazy days of business with fond memory.
Guacamoles has now grown to become one of Palm Springs’ local favorites for quick, fresh and friendly Mexican food. Passionately creating signature dishes and specializing in authentically innovative Mexican food, our solid reputation and foundation has now given us the opportunity to expand. From monthly catering events for high profile community leaders, to our daily loyalists, Guacamoles passion for quality and excellence is constantly visible.
Our vision for the future lies not only in providing the same high quality products to our consumers, but also in delivering a complete dining experience, tantalizing and stimulating the senses. Guacamoles has never been more eager to share its passion of quality food and service with newer markets as we look towards the future to begin our legacy.
We thank you for your patronage and

Roots of the California Avocado can be traced around the world. In Peru, archaeologists reportedly found avocado seeds buried with mummies dating back to 750 B.C. Legend has it that the first avocado was eaten in Mexico by a Mayan princess around 291 B.C. It is believed that the Aztecs used the avocado as an aphrodisiac. Moving through the ages, as European sailors traveled to America, they used avocados as "midshipman's butter," a mashed avocado spread that spiced up their rations. Later, early Americans called the avocado an "alligator pear," which described the fruit's texture and was easier to pronounce than the Spanish word "aguacate." The formal word for avocado was first used by Henry Sloane in 1669. The prosperous California avocado industry began in the late 1920s with the discovery of the Hass avocado. It was named after the postman, Rudolf Hass, who discovered the tree in his backyard in La Habra, California. The original Hass tree in La Habra is still standing today.
