4: Dine & Dish with Danny Trejo


“Everything good that has happened to me has happened as the direct result of helping someone else.”

– Danny Trejo

*Film by Nelson Lee of Noteworthy Collective

For our fourth episode of Dine & Dish with Dawn, I didn’t have to go further than right around the corner from my house to get my interview on…and leave with a new baseball cap on my head.

There, I met up with Machete himself, actor & producer Danny Trejo, at his flagship restaurant, Trejo’s Tacos, where we enjoyed street tacos and street corn, while he waved at fans who honked at us as they drove down La Brea.

Danny and I dished about everything including his time in prison (including 4 months in “the hole”/solitary confinement which led to a life-changing epiphany), addiction and recovery, the importance of having people around you that you trust, what Cinco de Mayo really means, how the whole world can think you’re a movie star but you can’t, his mother’s dream of owning a restaurant and how – as fate would have it – he came to own a chain of restaurants of his own today.

The best role that Danny has played is that of a survivor. And, he’s not only survived, but thrived, and continues to give back. For Danny, he has had dreams come true that he didn’t even know were possible, and now he helps others fulfill their dreams and potential as an intervention counselor.

As much as he might play the “bad guy,” this nice guy is the first to tell you that he is not in charge…his faith is.

A man whose faith and work ethic have helped him overcome every obstacle, you won’t ever think of Danny Trejo the same way again.

Just don’t call him Marcia.

*Producer’s Note: This was our show’s first attempt at recording outside in Los Angeles, the audio is as rough around the edges as Danny is tough. Please be patient with me as I’m still learning here.
