Luisa Allen, a longtime waitress at Ocean Beach’s Nati's Mexican restaurant, passed away peacefully on October 15, following a stroke. The eatery released the news on their Facebook page and asked for prayers for her family.
Allen was one of the original employees from when Nati's opened at the corner of Bacon Street and Niagara Avenue in 1960. Several generations of Nati's fans have grown up on the Americanized Mexican cuisine served there.
Nati's management is planning to organize a memorial service next week, either at the restaurant or at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Ocean Beach, where Allen was a member.
