Caesar is a recurring character on WB drama Gilmore Girls. He is portrayed by Aris Alvarado, and numerous actors in non-speaking roles.


Caesar is the chef at Luke's Diner. He is bubbly and sweet, albeit a tad stressed when there are a lot of customers and not completely at ease with having to deal with them at times when Luke is away and Caesar runs the diner.


  • He's mentioned a lot, and in the early seasons is rarely seen, save for once when Lorelai asks him where Luke is[1] and Luke often speaks to an off-camera Caesar.[2]
  • Created a salad he was very disappointed that he could not name after himself.
  • Tried to start up something new in the diner while Luke was gone, one thing being cold bananas.
  • The character who portrays Caesar actually changes throughout the show. In season 4 episode 2, Rory says "Thank you, Caesar" to an actor clearly not Aris Alvarado.
  • Caeser actually was a student at chilton
