Someburros, a locally-owned and family-operated group of restaurants that feature the founding family’s generational, authentic Sonoran-style Mexican recipes, will celebrate its 35th anniversary with a Lifetime Burro Pass giveaway and a special dine-in and takeout deal on its most popular burro. Founded by George and Mary Vasquez in 1986, the Vasquez Family has been committed to making fast-casual, authentic Mexican food for 35 years, starting with the first Someburros location in Tempe and expanding to 12 locations across Arizona with three more locations underway in Goodyear, Peoria, and San Tan Valley. The community, long-time employees, loyal customers and Someburros super fans have allowed Someburros to continue to grow and share their delicious, quality Mexican cuisine and friendly customer experience throughout the Valley and state. 

The Someburros story starts with Eusevio “Poncho” Vasquez and Isabel Vasquez who opened the family’s first restaurant, Poncho’s Mexican Food and Cantina, in 1972 and is still a South Phoenix staple today. Eusevio and Isabel’s son, George Vasquez, decided to expand the family business with his wife Mary and they created the local favorite, a fast-casual Mexican restaurant concept offering quality Mexican cuisine prepared quickly.
