Aurora restaurant owner Alberto Granados was
looking to expand his popular “Las Fajitas” restaurant. He says his new
location in Castle Pines, (in the Safeway shopping center) is a perfect
fit for his family-style Mexican restaurant.
“This is a great location and will give people something different from what is already here,” said Granados.
One of eleven children, the restaurant is a family
affair. Brother Fermin, who lives in Texas, is Granados’ business
partner, and brother Jose Luis is the chef. Even their dad, Juan, gets a
shout-out on the menu with the restaurant’s “Don Juan’s Favorite”
The menu features many familiar Mexican favorites
including burritos, tacos, salads, tostadas and tamales. “My favorite
thing on the menu is the fajitas, of course!” said Granados. “I love
the fajita trio, because you get to taste a few different things.”
There is also a wide selection of desserts,
including a “chimi cheese cake” – a decadent confection of cheesecake
fried in a tortilla, then topped with ice cream and caramel sauce.
All items are available to go and the restaurant
hosts a full bar and serves breakfast items all day. Las Fajitas, which
is located at 562 Castle Pines Parkway, Suite C-12, is open daily from
10 a.m. until 9 p.m. Las Fajitas is now open for business!
