Originally, from New Jersey, James Tilquist (known to all as “Tillie”) has been a restaurateur since 1989. He opened his first restaurant at age 22. Since then he’s owned 8 restaurants, (including the popular Crazy Wings in Mount Dora) and three bars. As a high school student, Tillie delivered Seven Up and RC Cola to his neighborhood food establishments during the summer vacation. He liked what he saw and has never lost his love for the food industry. That passion is evident in the attention to detail and dedication to serving quality food to his customers
Currently, Tillie owns and operates three local establishments here in beautiful Eustis. The El Marie Pizzaria and Sub Shoppe, Tillie’s Tavern and Grill, and CJ's Seafood Company bring reasonably priced good food to the area.
In late 1987, Tillie joined the Total Nonstop Action (TNA) Wrestling organization as well as seeing action in the WWE. Tillie was featured in numerous events and matches for over 12 years. When his son was born in 2015, Tillie retired from the ring to devote his attention to the restaurant business and family life.
