Tuxpan Mexican Grill
Jaime and Mary Cianca, owners of Tuxpan Mexican Grill, create a menu of authentic Mexican fare based on recipes from their hometown of Tuxpan, Mexico. Inside the kitchen Jaime, also acting as head chef, fills tacos with steak, seasoned pork, and cilantro, and prepares signature dishes—including chicken topped with house-made red or green mole sauce. Meanwhile, Mary, also working as a server, delivers plates of the popular shrimp fajitas and tall glasses of horchata to diners, leading the bilingual staff with instructions in both English and Spanish. Additionally, customers may choose to bring in a favorite bottle of wine to uncork during dinner thanks to the restaurant’s BYOB policy. The dining area’s orange-hued walls are adorned with butterfly decorations to mimic the famous winter migration of monarchs to the forests of Tuxpan, before for they head to their retirement community in Florida.
