When the first Jacala Mexican Restaurant opened its doors in 1949 it only seated 16 people. However even in 1949 the puffy taco was a primary part of the cuisine served at Jacala. After the success of the original restaurant on Wilson Street the decision was made to open a second location, on West Avenue.

This was the beginning of the legacy of Tex-Mex restaurants that would come to be held by Jacala Mexican Restaurant on West Avenue today. Expansion into a three dining room setup with an indoor patio and an outdoor courtyard would serve to invoke an inviting, open atmosphere and a pleasant, family friendly ambiance which is supported by seeing one member of the family owned restaurant’s four generations every time you step in the door.
