A MESA HUMBLY
thanks the people of Omaha for voting them Best of Omaha — 15 times in a row. “When we first won, we could not believe it,” says coowner and general manager Jose Salazar. “We are truly grateful to have been chosen so often.” La Mesa celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2018, and Salazar says he is happy to still be in a business he loves. “The best part is giving satisfaction to families,” says Salazar. “Knowing that we have been part of people’s lives. It might be a quick lunch or dinner, but it’s also
birthdays and anniversaries. We’re very thankful that they give us their trust to be part of their lives.”
“When we first started, we could only get about four or five pure tequilas,” Salazar says.
La Mesa prides themselves in their food selection, which ranges from enchiladas and burritos to seafood specialties and fajitas. Salazar especially appreciates recent trends towards authentic cuisine that allow him to showcase dishes he is used to eating in Mexico.
For 25 years, the staff of La Mesa has strived to be the best every day—to serve the best food, the best drinks, with the best quality they can bring to Omaha. They extend their thanks and hope Omaha continues to support them.
Another source of pride for La Mesa is its tequila selection. La Mesa carries over 100 types of 100% pure tequilas and hosts special tequila tasting dinners 2 to 3 times a year.
