Meet the Owners
John’s love for food and cooking started at a very young age where he spent many hours in the kitchen alongside his Mother. June taught her son how to create many dishes and every once in a while, she would share secrets of family recipes. Throughout high school and college, John worked at local restaurants where he continued to hone his cooking skills while learning the restaurant biz”. Spending many hours in the kitchen of others, he always dreamed of having his own place and although John is part owner and largest shareholder of Doc’s Oyster House in West Chester and Dover Downs, his favorite fare is Mexican! In 2010, John turned his attention towards bringing a unique South of the Border experience to West Chester, Pennsylvania. John’s latest independently owned and operated creation, Más Mexicali Cantina, is located downtown in the heart of West Chester.
John’s wife of more than twenty years, Joanne, designed and decorated Más helping in bringing their vision to life. From the authentic Mexican décor of the Cantina and the rock-n-roll vibe of the Tequila Bar and Velvet Lounge, to the one-of-a-kind rooftop, Más’ incomparable atmosphere is infused with her passion to delight. Together John & Joanne have created a dining experience that reflects their love for great food in an atmosphere that celebrates their love for family and friends.
