La Conchita Restaurant Celebrates Its Grand Opening in Santaquin

Mexican food is a popular choice for South Utah County families, and now they have one more restaurant to choose from when deciding what to eat. On April 2,  Santaquin City officially welcomed La Conchita Authentic Mexican Food to 27 W Main Street with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. Restaurant staff members graciously served free churros and ice cream to everyone who attended the grand opening. 

La Conchita is cozy inside and features a few tables and chairs to accommodate visitors. Online ordering for guest pick-up is also available on the restaurant’s website. The family-owned and operated business fits right in with the small-town feel of Main Street Santaquin.

Fans of authentic Mexican food are sure to appreciate the flavorful dishes La Conchita offers. Every menu item is made with love and meticulous attention to each flavorful detail. The menu features popular favorites such as burritos, gorditas, sopes, and tacos. 

The lesser-known menu options are just as delicious as the most popular dishes. If you’re feeling adventurous, try the mouthwatering quesabirria (made with cooked beef folded into a crispy tortilla with cilantro and melted mozzarella cheese). You may want to give the pambazo a go if you’re interested in tasting a traditional Mexican sandwich with crispy bread, potatoes,and chorizo.  

Got picky kids? La Conchita offers a tasty kids menu featuring a crisp and cheesy quesadilla, bean and cheese burrito, street asada taco, or street chicken taco. Each comes with a side of classic French fries.  Don’t forget to indulge in an order of creamy rice pudding, steamy churro, colorful mosaic jello, or sugar tortilla bites for dessert! 

Given how new La Conchita is, it’s only at 41 reviews. However, those who have reviewed the restaurant so far, overwhelmingly give it five stars. Diners love the quality of the food and the equally exceptional service. Dishes are reasonably priced with large portions, and guests frequently remark about how fresh and delicious the ingredients are.

With construction currently happening on Santaquin Main Street, the staff at La Conchita are especially hopeful visitors will continue supporting their business. If the parking area along Main Street is closed when you stop by, you can find additional parking in the back of the restaurant.
