First Look: Casa Juárez Mexican Town in Maryland Heights

Monday, January 22nd, 2018

Casa Juárez Mexican Town, a sprawling new concept from the folks behind Chihuahua’s Mexican Restaurant, opens its doors for dinner tonight, Jan. 22, at 12710 Dorsett Road in Maryland Heights.

The Casa Juárez menu has plenty of south-of-the-border favorites, from gourmet tacos to enchiladas to nachos, along with items not usually associated with a Mexican restaurant, including a variety of hand-cut steaks and seafood dishes like Juarez salmon topped with chipotle sauce. Everything is prepared in the open kitchen including the tortillas, which are made daily.

The appellation “town” for the restaurant is more than apt. The space, some 11,000 square feet, seats 250 inside with an additional 120 on the front patio. The colorful exterior, painted to resemble adobe and with two Aztec warriors guarding the entrance, gives a hint of what awaits inside.

The interior is a riot of color and patterns – multicolored tiles, Aztec suns and elaborate light fixtures abound. Other amenities include a full bar and a gift shop. Keep an eye out for Rico’s Street Tacos, a dedicated street taco bar inside the restaurant, and a tequila tasting room, opening in the coming weeks.

The kitchen at Casa Juárez will be open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday to Saturday (the bar will be open until midnight) and 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday.

Chihuahua’s Mexican Restaurant in Maryland Heights will soon close its doors – only to welcome a new venture.

Owner Alfredo Flores is branching out to launch a new concept, Casa Juárez Mexican Town. He said the new restaurant is slated to open second week of August at 12710 Dorsett Road, but Chihuahua’s will remain in business until the new restaurant is finished.

The new 11,000-square-foot space will feature an open kitchen, a counter-service street taco area for quick to-go orders and a fully stocked tequila bar with more than 500 varieties of the spirit.

Flores said guests can expect hourly tours to learn more about the process and history behind the liquor. “It’s actually like vodka for Russia,” Flores said.

Additionally, an onsite store will feature authentic Mexican art, ceramics and other memorabilia. Flores said anything seen in Casa Juárez – from the decor to the furniture – will be available for purchase.

Flores said walking into Casa Juárez will be similar to a walk through the streets of Mexico. “This is going to be a destination, not just a restaurant,” he said.
