I grew up in Little Mexico Village Charlie was always nice he made the best Ham & Cheese sandndwiches along with chilli cheese hot links. I would visit the store as little girl my mom would give me and my sisters a list and Charlie would make sure we got everything on that list and to make sure we got across the street ok.

I was born and raised at Little Mexico Village and the Villasana family were very good to my mom and her family. We always went there for Charlie's sandwhiches, and that chili he made that I would ask for 2 scoops added in my chips....those were the days and he was a part of the community's lives not just by what he did for families but he was a GREAT person. My thoughts and prayers are with the Villasana family. We have lots of stories to share with family and friends! Rest In Peace

The Villasana family have always been close friends to my family, I’ve seen and read where a lot of people are writing about Charlie’s sandwiches, but he always made me Charlie Villasana special man was it loaded , then that special touch with salt and pepper. Please don’t forget his hot link sandwich with mustard and Louisiana hot sauce, what I would do or pay for just one more time .Charlie was a kind person with a big heart . He will be missed by many , love you Charlie, Matias Leal son of the owners of Dallas tortilla

I will never forget the excitement of walking into his store, ....my grandparents lived at Little Mexico Village , ....my aunt, sister, cuzns....we loved his store.

No one could make a sandwich like Charlie....no one!

He greeted us like family.....him and my dad would talk at the counter, as I would look at what snacks to get before heading home.

His store.....the person he was, is a historical mark on the barrio....

Rest in peace Charlie.....

"Chale" and his family were always very kind and generous to me. I remember coming back from a road trip of Texas and stopping by the store and telling "Chale" that I had bought a large "metate"at the San Antonio market, but that it was missing the "mano." He went to the back of the store and yes, handed me the large lava stone "mano." I asked him "how much do you want for it?" With a big smile on his face he said, "It's on the house." I guess he was glad someone from my generation would want or use a "metate." Our mothers were great friends, worked together on charitable events, and they were both wonderful cooks. Dr. Onesimo Hernandez once asked me what Margaret Villasana was doing in the hall way after one of my surgeries, and I told him that wasn't Mrs. Villasana, that was my mom, Mary Delgado. "Chale" will be greatly missed. Our parents were considered part of the original "Old Guard."
