Favela’s Mexican Grill delivers a fun Mexican dining adventure at a moderate price. We have become Solano County’s favorite Mexican Restaurant by being a place where every guest will enjoy fast friendly service and delicious food served in a fun, festive atmosphere. Favela’s is more than a restaurant. It’s an attitude. It’s a spirit. It’s a way of life. We’re committed to making sure our guests are greeted with a smile and that they leave with one. It’s what we stand for and is reflected in everything we do.
In 1990, a young Veronica and her father Elisardo Favela found a need for a new style of Mexican restaurant; it would be a casual style with festive surroundings. Along with an attractive environment, the food would be the freshest and best tasting every time. This service would also have to fit a family’s budget.
Most importantly, the overall focus would consist in the customer’s appreciation of every savory item. The Favela’s “Familia” believed strongly that the values they established would eventually lead to success. They were right.
By 1993 and demand from out-of-town customers, prompted Veronica to expand the business and open a second location in Vacaville which has been a success since it’s opening. Never straying from the original intention, never losing focus on consistent and affordable Mexican food and excellent service, the restaurant has continued its steady rate of growth. To prove this, by 1998 a third location on the north side of Fairfield was opened. This restaurant was capable to offer many new additions to the menu that only made the restaurant more appealing to the community. After fourteen years, Favela’s is ready to expand into the Sacramento market finding a niche in the West Sacramento area.
