Julio Castillo

Julio Castillo grew up in a family of talented cooks just outside of Downtown Fort Worth, where he enjoyed making food from scratch from a young age.

After cooking alongside his mother and father for many years, he put his skills to the test at his first restaurant job in the Fort Worth Stockyards. Julio’s career began at Riscky’s, where he learned to cook BBQ, experienced a fast paced kitchen environment, and made lifelong connections along the way. Here, customers would specifically ask for Julio to cook their meals, and he knew from that point on that his calling was to be a chef.

Julio’s culinary journey has consisted of a variety of roles and responsibilities within the restaurant industry. When Dakon, an old friend from Riscky’s, and his wife Amy opened their restaurant Lonesome Spur, Julio joined the kitchen team and began to showcase his home cooking talent. In 2010, Julio’s experience in restaurant management grew when he and his siblings opened Bello’s, a traditional Mexican restaurant, in honor of his father Javier Castillo. At Bello’s, Julio crafted his own menu showcasing the Latin spices and authentic dishes he grew up cooking with his dad. After his time at Bello’s, Julio expanded his expertise by joining the Hyatt Hotel family, where he learned banquet style catering. His experiences at Bello’s and Hyatt prepared him for the day he received another opportunity from Dakon and Amy; they were opening LS Catering and wanted Julio to lead the effort, giving him full reign to craft the delicious menu. Julio accepted this opportunity and brought with him the years of skills and experience he’d gained from owning his own restaurant.

To LS Catering, Julio not only brings decades of culinary expertise but also a desire to best serve his customers and staff each and every day.




Dakon Doggett

With an accredited history in hospitality, spanning more than 20 years, Dakon maintains an expansive roster of responsibilities with a proven track record of managing and leading hospitality venues in the industry.

Born and raised in the DFW area, Dakon Doggett and his wife Amy met while working at a local restaurant and bar Riscky’s BBQ Stockyards. Dakon and Amy ventured into the restaurant and catering business after years of gaining experience and with determination for success. With confidence and their combined experience, they opened a place of their own, family owned and operated restaurant called the Lonesome Spur, and then the Mule Barn Sports Bar & Grill, the first full service bar & restaurant to open in the formerly dry city. Shortly after opening the Mule Barn, it evolved from sports bar into one of the most beloved local music venues catering to musicians like Pat Green, Roger Creager, Cody Jinks, and more. Recently, the LS Catering company was established to help service the catering demand that Lucky Spur Ranch Retreat brings.
