Figaro’s Mexican Grill – Ribbon Cutting

Meeting Yvette Figueroa the Director of Operations at their Ribbon Cutting gave a great insight of how successful her family is with now the 5th New Location  for Figaro’s Mexican Restaurant at 8482 N. Friant Rd Fresno, Ca. 93720. Rafael Figueroa the owner moved from Jalisco Mexico in 1987 to Davis, Ca. where he was a chef for a well-known restaurant but his dream was to run his own business someday and so they helped him learn all areas from cooking to the commercial and business side so that he would be prepared to be on his own. The first location was opened in 2004 in Tulare, the 2nd in 2006 in Hanford and the 3rd in 2008 in Visalia but they groomed and made sure that not only was it a great product that people would come back to but they knew they needed the front of the house just as good! So the success of the 3 locations has given the family now the opportunity to open their 4th location in Clovis in August 2016 and the 5th in Fresno in Jan 2017. This is definitely a family affair with Rafael & his wife, Yvette and her 2 sisters and brother all helping with the success of all 5 locations! 

The food was absolutely fantastic and they have a wide range of different dishes from Appetizers, Burritos, Tacos, Ensaladas, to special’s like Figaro’s Plates & Fiesta Platters this is definitely my new spot and if you get a chance stop in anyone of their 5 locations you will not be disappointed!! The portions are perfect and the burritos can be shared by 2 people however no one wants to share !
