From its beginning as a single location in Richmond,Virginia, Mexico Restaurant has grown into one of the region's success stories. This family business has built on its reputation of providing fine food and friendly service in a festive atmosphere. Today, the Mexico Restaurant has unique neighborhood eateries throughout the Richmond metropolitan area bringing the wealth and breadth of Mexico's cuisine to thousands of loyal diners. Since 1990, when the Garcia family from Guadalajara opened its first Richmond location, the business has grown into multiple locations with dining rooms richly decorated with beautiful murals featuring scenes from all over Mexico. Jose and Raul Garcia3with Uncle Jesus Arellano and his son Agustin4started the restaurant. Soon, their sister Maria Garcia and their parents added their energy and expertise to the family business. Over the years, the restaurants have expanded gradually. Our philosophy has been to bring people into the business as we've needed them and to reward those who contribute most with part ownership in the business. Maria Garcia says. They share in the business as it grows. It helps them and it helps us, too. It becomes this great extended family.
