Dan Koller Has a Few Things to Say About Rafa’s Cafe Mexicano

Don't Mess With Texan: Dan "The Captain" Koller.

Dan Koller is one of my favorite people. Why? Because he scares me. He looks like a cuddly Teddy bear, but underneath that nice-guy veneer lies the heart (maybe) of a cold-blooded managing editor.

  1. I’d post this comment on Park Cities People blog but my comments go straight to delete and Dan’s never replied to my emails asking why. Anyhoo – Rafa’s is a great family-owned business. I agree with many of the comments on the PCP blog that it’s a noisy, busy place and if you’re not up for that kind of an experience, go elsewhere. Chuy’s is a great restaurant – everything is freshly made there – no walk-in freezer or premade mush. The company culture is excellent and the higher ups really want to provide great food at a reasonable price in a fun atmosphere. And they sell cute t-shirts.
