First Look: Mayana Mexican Kitchen in Clayton
Fans of Hacienda Mexican Restaurant in Rock Hill can get a quick bite when its sister restaurant opens Mayana Mexican Kitchen at 7810 Forsyth Blvd., in Clayton on Friday, July 8. As Sauce reported in January, Hacienda co-owners Alex Rodriguez de Torres and John Rodriguez announced the build-your-own concept (then called Wet Burrito) as a way to accommodate the busy Clayton lunch rush.
Racks of tortilla dough waiting to be pressed greet guests upon entering the bright 1,500-square-foot casual eatery. Flour tortillas are made to order and serve as the base for customizable burritos, tacos or quesadillas. Other base options include tortilla-free burrito bowls, salads or a flaky piece of fry bread. Each dish can be customized with meats like citrus-marinated chicken, fajita steak and carnitas, as well as rice, beans, cheese, sauces and salsas.
Managing partner Brian Michaels said he expects the Clayton location to be the first of many Mayana Mexican Kitchens, and plans to open additional locations across the country. “We’re ready,” said Michaels. “(Hacienda has) already restructured to go national.”
Mayana Mexican Kitchen will be open Monday to Saturday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Here’s a sneak peek of what to expect when you step inside:
