A Destination

Sylvia, along with her family of the La Canasta Mexican Restaurants, are a treasured tradition in the Valley of the Sun. The first La Canasta Mexican Restaurant opened in 1962 and it was there that Sylvia mastered her skills as a restauranteur. In 1988 she branched off to open Sylvia's Restaurant and Fiesta Catering Services, a popular Phoenix dining location. Recognizing a void in the market, she soon expanded to include Mateo's Beach Club, a Mexican Cantina with weekly live entertainment and room rental services.  Because Sylvia understands the demands of the modern diner, she eventually opened Sylvia's Mexican Express restaurant, a drive-through restaurant designed to deliver high quality authentic Mexican food at a fast-food pace. Check back with us for the Express web site coming soon.
Sylvia's success in the Mexican food business is attributed to using only the freshest ingredients along with her family's secret recipes and close attention to the quality of service provided for her customers. With this combination, it's no wonder that you see the same happy faces in the restaurants week after week. The same is true with Fiesta Catering and the loyal clients that use her services repeatedly for their parties and refer their friends as well.

Sylvia has always been surrounded by the unique flavors of Sonoran-style cooking. As a young girl she enjoyed spending time in her grandmother's Mexican kitchen, watching skilled hands stretch homemade tortillas and stir together sauces bursting with aromas of fresh chiles and spices. She grew up in the markets and small restaurants her parents owned in Phoenix, Arizona, and along with her six siblings, learned the food service business from the inside out. Favorite dishes, such as such as Menudo Rojo, Chile Rellenos and Chorizo con Huevos - along with family favorites Mariscos con Arroz, frijoles and Tia's Tequila Quenchers, were prepared for patrons in the family's neighborhood restaurants and new recipes were created for guests with insatiable tastes for flavorful Sonoran cuisine.

Today, after many years of crafting great food and providing stellar service, Sylvia's Mexican Restaurant has become the standard-setter in the Phoenix food service industry. Perfected through the application of old-world experience, the finest, freshest ingredients and a genuine love of great food, Sylvia's trademarked menu items will be sure to please even the toughest Mexican food critic.

Sylvia's Mexican Restaurant serves a full menu of Sonoran favorites.
