About Us

The building where Lincoln Square Service INC., is located, has operated as an auto repair and service shop since 1928. In 1980, Mr. Sung Lee (previous owner) bought the business and performed general automotive repairs and services. Also, Mr. Lee delivered his customers quality work for competitive prices. Mr. Lee devoted 23 years of service and expanded his clientele. During his last years of service at the shop, Mr. Lee was searching for a qualified, honest, and competent auto technician to take over his business.
In 1998, Mr. Lee met Mr. Carmelo Rios who came with a vast history of experience, knowledge, and communication skills in this business industry. Mr. Rios was hired as a General Manager as part of Mr. Lee’s plans for retirement. In 1999, Mr. Rios worked his way up from manager to business partner. In 2003, Mr. Rios bought the business from Mr. Lee. Although it changed hands, nothing has changed about how Mr. Rios does business at LSSI. As a result, the shop continues to grow due to referrals from our customers.

Carmelo Rios
President/ Owner
One of Many Positive Testimonials for Carmelo!
"I have referred or used this shop about five times. Carmelo is the nicest and truthful mechanic I have ever known. His integrity is impeccable. He doesn't fix the problem without giving you every alternative out there. One of my buddies that I referred saved nearly $1,500 when he found out that the work another shop recommended was unnecessary. Carmelo won't do work on your car to make a quick buck. Customers always come first and because of that, this shop will always be around. Customer Service and Care are their #1 priority..."
