From a small town on the southwest border of Mexico, Exequiel brought to the U.S. his hopes, energy, and his dream of one day sharing homemade Mexican dishes in his own restaurant / foodtruck. He realized that success did not come easy; it would take sacrifice and patience. To fulfill this dream Exequiel slowly climbed the restaurant food chain. He started out working as a dishwasher, and then was able to get some hours as a busboy, and then in less than a year, he got the chance to work as a waiter. With hard work and determination, Exequiel had saved enough money to open his own restaurant / foodtruck.
In the fall of 1979, Exequiel opened the first Mayas Mexican Restaurant in Rainier Valley. The original restaurant, a hole in the wall is how Exequiel refers to it, was 850 square feet including the kitchen and had only 9 tables. Although small, it attracted a lot of business from local residents who enjoyed the food and the warm friendly atmosphere that it provided.
Now you can enjoy the great cuisine on every location you wish.
