The Mexicano to Open Second Location in Chandler this Fall
By Erica Shipione - Tuesday Apr 09, 2024
Popular Mexican restaurant The Mexicano is bringing its famous build-your-own margarita bar to the East Valley with the opening of its second location in Chandler this fall. Founded in 2021 by The Maggiore Group, the restaurant powerhouse team behind The Rosticceria, Hash Kitchen, The Sicilian Butcher and The Sicilian Baker, the new location is set to open its doors at 3095 W. Chandler Blvd. at Chandler Fashion Center.

The Mexicano by Chef Joey Concepts has mastered the art of elevated and interactive dining since its flagship location opened in Phoenix. The Mexicano’s chef-driven menu provides authentic cuisine staying true to the traditions of Mexico, while incorporating fusion cuisine including birria bao buns and Instagram-worthy table items such as the guacamole and salsa ferris wheel. The new location will also feature the concept’s daily happy hour with specials on classico margaritas, Mexican draft beer, sangria, cocktails and $3 tacos including al pastor, chicken tinga and the ‘Best F-ing Queso Birria.’

“Our Chandler location will be the same fun, energetic, delicious Mexicano our guests know and love,” says Joey Maggiore, chef and co-founder of The Maggiore Group and Chef Joey Concepts. “We are thrilled to be bringing our second location, and the party, to the Easy Valley this fall.”

Designed by Chef Joey’s wife Cristina Maggiore, the Chandler location will keep its Mexico City roots and fiesta ambience with vibrant colors, authentic imported furniture, indoor and outdoor seating and a custom DJ booth for daily entertainment. Guests can expect the same energetic scene with rotating DJs spinning Latin music seven days a week, fire dancers, and special appearances by local Mariachi bands.

This summer, The Mexicano Chandler will be hiring for dozens of positions including servers, bartenders, food runners, bussers, expeditors, hosts, line cooks and dishwashers. An official announcement regarding interview appointments for interested candidates will be released later this summer by the restaurant group.
