Our History

Established in 1983.

El Nuevo Mexicano was founded by Teresa and Elfego Rodriquez in 1983. By using only fresh ingredients, they were able to create an authentic traditional Mexican menu. In 2004, their niece, Maria, took over the restaurant and infused her own style of cooking while keeping the traditional dishes the same. The menu at El Nuevo Mexicano is constantly evolving and will continue to offer dishes that are traditional along with new healthier options.
