The Story of The Original Grande

Señor Grande, a southwestern saguaro, and his son,  Chico Grande, were tired of the scorching hot Arizona summers and limited supply of water. The two decided to embark on a journey to find the perfect place to call home. They visited every state and every major city and noticed many didn’t have easy access to affordable Mexican cuisine.

The idea for the Original Grande was born. By prioritizing high-quality ingredients, the father-son duo made it their mission to satisfy customer’s cravings for affordable, quality Mexican food. They chose to set up shop in Kansas to entice people from all directions of the country to visit their restaurant.
