History of Las Casuelas
Las Casuelas Restaurants have a long and proud heritage. In the city of Mazatlan, Mexico, founder
Florencio Delgado's grandmother prepared wonderful dishes and perfected recipes
to hand down to her children. Using these same recipes, Florencio's mother
prepared and served meals to townspeople from her very own kitchen in Arizona.
Later, this small "restaurant" became known as the Spanish Kitchen, and became the
forebearer to the Las Casuelas Restaurants. From these humble beginnings, Florencio and
Maria Delgado opened the original Las Casuelas. Florencio and Maria's son Robert and
wife Lisa Delgado now carry on the tradition with Las Casuelas Quinta. Las Casuelas has
become a local institution and has grown along with the Coachella Valley.
Las Casuelas Quinta blends the tastes of colonial Mexico with contemporary
California in traditional Las Casuelas style. While you listen to the terrific sounds of live
entertainment, enjoy dining under the Tropical Palapa Patio or by the massive fireplace in
the Great Room, there's something for all the sense at Las Casuelas Quinta.
