Where It All Began

Actually, our restaurant business started in La Barca, a little town in the Mexican state of Jalisco, located just 70 miles southeast of Guadalajara. It is in this typical agricultural town where La Barca Restaurantes’ roots originate.

A Family Tradition

We grew up preparing salsas, moles (pastes of ground spices and dry chilies), and other special ingredients to make Birria for our small restaurant inside the town’s local market. We used to prepare from two to three whole goats every day, 365 days a year, so we became expert Birria and salsa makers.

Additionally, as members of a very large family, we were exposed to a great variety of home made Mexican food as part of our usual daily diet and the countless family parties, holidays, and celebrations.

The Move to California

When we moved to California, we worked to realize the vision that we had since our early days as small restaurateurs. We had a vision of a place where you, our patrons, could get great fresh-made food, served with a notorious enthusiasm every time you come in.

Realization of a Vision

La Barca Restaurantes is the realization of our vision:

To make tasteful, home-made food from the freshest, highest-quality ingredients, and to serve it promptly in a clean and friendly atmosphere.

We are proud to have brought that vision to life. We hope you'll enjoy it.
