When America Corrales, the visionary behind the authentic Mexican fare of America's Taco Shop®, first came to the U.S. from her native Mexico, her most precious possession was a collection of her mother's hand-written recipes.

For nine years, America shared these authentic, flavorful Mexican foods only with her friends and husband Terry Bortin. Terry would sit and enjoy America’s meals at their kitchen table in Phoenix, Arizona where they would dream together about someday serving these home-cooked meals in a Mexican restaurant of their own.

That dream became a reality in 2008, when America and Terry opened the first America's Taco Shop in Phoenix. It was an instant smash hit and it didn't take long for customers to flock to America's Taco Shop for their unmatched Carne Asada. 

America's Story

sINCE 2008

In 2008 we decided that there was an opportunity to open a restaurant that serves Mexican Food that is authentic to my hometown of Culiacan, Sinaloa Mexico. We really care about the quality of our food and want you to feel like you are part of our family! We are still going strong and continue to serve the same quality Mexican Food that we did on that first day in October of 2008. We are here for all your catering needs!
