Our Beginnings

Raul, Carlos and Blanca Lopez, the owners of Mr. Taco Mexican Food in Miami Beach learned very important lessons from their mother " Cook with passion and serve with love" and that's exactly what they have done all their lives! It's quite possible that their passion for cooking started when they were young children living in Mexico City.

Raul opened the first Mr. Taco on the Southside of  Chicago.The restaurant although small, proved to be a success and soon after opened more restaurants throughout Chicago land. In the 1980's, Carlos decided to try his luck by opening a Mr. Taco restaurant in Cicero, Illinois.

The restaurant was an instant hit.So with the success of Mr. Taco in Cicero and with the vision of a place in Miami that that would serve authentic Mexican Food, came the inspiration behind the opening of Mr. Taco in Miami Beach, and so here is where the Lopez Family begins a new chapter.  Mr. Taco Mexican Food of Miami Beach will continue to be loyal to the lessons that have inspired the Lopez Family for more than 40 years, which has been to prepare authentic delicious Mexican food with the same passion, dedication and love that they have done in the past and to continue to serve their clients with the same friendliness and excellent quality they deserve and what the Lopez family has been known for.
