Mijares Mexican Restaurant

It was 100 years ago that Jesucita Mijares fled the revolution in Mexico, searching for a new life for her family. After settling in Pasadena, she opened a small tortilla factory. It quickly became known for its tiny restaurant featuring Jesucita’s original recipes, tortillas, tamales and sauces made with her metate stone grinder carried from Mexico.

Today, Mijares Mexican Restaurant is Pasadena’s oldest and finest Mexican restaurant known for its authentic regional and traditional cuisine, famous margaritas and festive multi patio dining! Mijares Restaurant remains a family tradition under the care of the Mijares family.
