The name of the restaurant is partly inspired by the owner’s father’s band Los Apson, which was a popular rock and roll group in Mexico in the 1960s. The band was known for songs like ‘No Hay Amor’ and ‘Fue en un Café’. The inside of the restaurant shows pictures of his dad’s band. The name also reflects the owner’s hometown of Agua Prieta, Sonora, Mexico.
