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.
