Actor, San Antonio Native Jesse Borrego Shows Support at Local CBD Cafe


With CBD (cannabidiol) bites and eateries on the rise in San Antonio, actor Jesse Borrego is among the San Antonians taking note.

On Tuesday, Dab Hemp Cafe shared a photo of Borrego, who was born and raised in San Antonio, during his visit. He loved it, saying he'll take a gallon of the cafe's El Jefe coffee, according to the post.
The cafe's followers loved the celebrity sighting.

"He's the real deal!" wrote user @thetioroy.

Borrego has a lengthy and notable list of acting credits. He's appeared in titles such as 24, Blood In Blood Out, Dexter, and Fear the Walking Dead. After graduating from Harlandale High School in 1980, Borrego attended University of the Incarnate Word and later the California Institute of the Arts. He got his break on Fame, appearing in the show's last three seasons.

Last month, Borrego was honored at the San Antonio Film Festival and received a Legacy Award.
