Our Story

Our passion in restaurant businesses started long ago with our arrival in the United States. My family and I had many business ventures before perfecting the Saritas Grill & Cantina brand, like El Magey Mexican buffet, that I opened with one of his brothers. After that success I wanted to focus my efforts elsewhere with my own brand name. I opened the first Saritas in Baton Rouge as a Mexican buffet; people loved the restaurant, regardless of the success but I still envisioned something different, a Mexican Restaurant with great drinks, live music and tailored dishes. This is when Saritas Grill & Cantina was born with our first location in St. Amant right on the Diversion Canal, followed by the Hammond location in 2012, and finally the Denham Springs location in 2018 serving the Greater Baton Rouge Area.

I trully feel that what sets our restaurants apart is that we bring flavor from El Salvador to traditional Mexican dishes. The dishes include more vegetables and herbs, peppers and natural flavors. People come back for the flavor over and over again. The food is not all you will get at Saritas, our Margaritas are the best in town made with freshly squeezed lime juice and flavor. 

The Saritas Grill & Cantina brand, is a family business that is proud to serve the Maurepas, Hammond and Baton Rouge community. Come by experience the flavor for yourself!
