Rumours of Dennis Quaid hanging out in Brandon appear to be true following a sighting of the celebrity at a local restaurant.
Anna Beltran is a part owner of Sabor Latino on Ninth Street and she says Quaid stopped in for dinner at Brandon’s new latin restaurant on Friday night.
"He was here with I think his wife," said Beltran. "We had a short conversation ... He’s a really good guy, very (humble)."
Beltran says she didn’t recognize the Hollywood actor right away.
"No, I didn’t. My (servers) are young and they read a lot about famous people," Beltran said. "My servers were taking pictures of them. They’re kids so they were pretty excited."
Quaid apparently ordered the pupusas — handmade tortillas stuffed with cheese, beans and pork — and, at one point during the meal, stood up and started dancing to the music playing on the restaurant’s sound system.
"He was so happy, he was dancing at the restaurant enjoying the music," Beltran said.
According to Beltran, Quaid came into the restaurant at 8:30 p.m. with crew members from the set of the movie "A Dog’s Purpose," which started filming in Brandon last week.
Beltran says members of the film crew have been eating at Sabor Latino quite regularly.
"They told us we’re the best restaurant in Brandon," Beltran said. "They’re eating a lot of different places and they found that here is the real Mexican food."
"A Dog’s Purpose," stars Quaid, Peggy Lipton and Britt Robertson, and is based on the 2010 New York Times bestseller by W. Bruce Cameron.
The story focuses on a devoted dog that is reincarnated several times with the hopes of one day being reunited with its original owner. It is set in the 1960s and ’70s with some scenes occurring in the present day.
Parts of the movie are being Brandon, Virden and Minnedosa, and Beltran hopes to see Quaid again while the crew is still in town.
"He said that he will be back," Beltran said.
