Our History

Over 35 years ago, Papa and Mamma Zajur came from Mexico to the United States, bringing with them the warmth and of their homeland and a love for the family's traditional recipes. Later, they opened a small restaurant, appropriately naming it "La Siesta" after the Mexican custom of spending the mid-day break in the company of one's friends and family. As the restaurant grew, the Zajurs' popularity increased, yet they never sacrificed their dedication to preparing food in the old fashioned way, with an emphasis on fresh ingredients and authenticity. Our goals here at La Siesta continue to reflect those aspirations of 30 years ago: to serve our customers the finest Mexican cuisine in a traditional family settings, so that they will feel like honored guests in the Zajur home. With so much attention to detail, it's not surprising that you can always spot a member of the family at La Siesta.
