“Each year is a milestone for us,” Bill Castro, owner of El Meson said, in a release. “We don’t take for granted the longevity we’ve experienced here in the Miami Valley, and we couldn’t be more excited to honor each generation with this special menu we’re presenting.”

The restaurant, located at 903 East Dixie Drive in West Carrollton, will celebrate Wednesday, July 27 through Saturday, July 30 from 4 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. with a special six item menu representing each generation of the restaurant.

The restaurant started as “The Pizza Queen” in 1978, transformed into “PQ International” with the addition of some traditional Colombian fare, and eventually transitioned into “El Meson” as we know it today.

“From the dishes that initially engrained us here in the community to what we would become known for today and what may be on the horizon as we welcome our Third generation manager, we can’t wait to share some delicious food with the community,” Castro said.
