The Butte County Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon cutting ceremony on Monday morning for Hector and Maricela Martinez, owners of the Taquería la Costa.  Mr. Martinez purchased and refurbished the old mini-mart on West Grand Avenue, across of the Bottolfson Park.  They opened for business on the Saturday of Atomic Days 2013.

The restaurant is a family business owned by Mr. and Mrs. Martinez, and operated by them, their children and occasionally some relatives.  Hector and Maricela also own and operate a Taquería la Costa in Chubbuck, where they live with their children Hector, Alberto, Rudolfo, Marilyn and Kimberly. 

Taquería la costa offers a wide variety of authentic Mexican food with reasonable prices and generous portions.  The restaurant is open Monday to Saturday from 8:30 AM to 9:00 PM. 

Hector uses authentic Mexican ingredients in his cooking.  The restaurant offers domestic soft drinks as well as authentic imported Mexican soft.  They also offer fried ice cream, a traditional Mexican desert.

Mr. Martinez would like to thank the community for the warm welcome his restaurant has received.
