The Taco Mamacita story is one built around a passion for food and customer service and a love for the restaurant business. Taylor and Mike Monen have always loved the restaurant industry. The majority of both of their working lives have been spent in the restaurant business. Mike was a co-owner of a very successful rib and barbecue restaurant chain from 1997 until the company sold in 2006. He took a short break from the restaurant industry, was bored out of his mind, and decided that he wanted to begin a ground-up brand spankin’ new restaurant. Armed with almost no experience in the Mexican food world (other than knowing that he loved it), he worked with a very renowned modern-mexican cuisine guru named Roberto Santibanez who was the culinary consultant for some pretty well-known restaurants such as Rosa Mexicano and Santana’s restaurant Maria Maria. So Mike took his idea for a casual funky-fusion taco joint and combined it with his newly learned knowledge of traditional mexican cooking techniques and began concepting the menu for Taco Mamacita.
It is our goal to give every customer, whether a first-timer or a regular, the best dining experience they have ever had each time they come to Taco Mamacita. If we don’t meet this mission, let Mama know about it. And we LOVE to know when we did a great job, too! We constantly praise and reward our crew for kickin’ butt so if you want to brag about your experience, please do so.
