Some History; Tony Guerrero was an "Island Boy"! In the 1930's he went to Hollywood made a several movies. While there he meet the beautiful Peaches Jackson, who was pursuing her career in the movies, the rest is well... Tony owned his first restaurant in Hollywood. When they sold it they moved to Hawaii.
