Casa Grande is a family-friendly restaurant that serves traditional Mexican entrees. Carlos Ortiz is the proud owner of this local restaurant.
With the many different menu options, Carlos's favorite item is the carnitas with corn tortillas and hot salsa. Yum!
Carlos started the business because of many customers traveling to their location in South Point. They realized that they wanted people from this area to have access to the food closer to home.
Casa Grande is definitely a family operated restaurant. Francisco, their brother, is a trained chef that has helped them to create great recipes and concepts. You will always find him in the kitchen trying out new ideas to bring to the customers.
It was no surprise that COVID-19 had a great effect on their business during the shutdown. When talking to them I asked what the local support meant to them, and they were very humbled.
They told me, “We are so thankful that the locals have supported us during these times, and I am glad that we as a community have come together to help businesses in need, especially now. We have always been involved with the community that are so glad we are a part of this.”
