Old Mexico Restaurant Now Open in Quincy

- Posted: 05/08/09
QUINCY, FL (May 8, 2009) - The Gadsden County Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce the grand opening of the Old Mexico restaurant at 6765 Ben Bostick Road in Quincy next to Piggly Wiggly. The Chamber and Old Mexico hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony on the morning of May 4 just before the restaurant officially opened for lunch. The restaurant will be open daily from 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.

“We’re happy to introduce Old Mexico to Gadsden County,” said Michelle Burdick, the vice president of membership for the Gadsden County Chamber of Commerce. “Its evening hours will give our residents a place to enjoy a sit-down meal, not only for lunch, but also on weeknights and throughout the weekend.”

Old Mexico, a family owned and operated restaurant, offers a warm and inviting atmosphere to relax and dine by combining an artistic metalwork from Mexico with serapes blankets easily recognizable by their colorful striped weave. With stucco walls glazed in antique yellow, the green, terracotta and red shades throughout the interior give off a warm glow. The wood furniture, much of it handcrafted from recycled cypress and pine, lends a rustic authenticity in creating an experience true to the Mexican heritage. Aged timbers and a tin roof over a row of booths give a sense of privacy to diners.

“We want people to feel welcome and be comfortable while eating good quality food,” said the owner and manager, Hector Bautista.

A variety of lunch specials including burritos, enchiladas, taco salad and quesadillas are available for only five dollars and a family of four can easily order dinner and beverages for less than thirty-five dollars. All meals are prepared fresh for each order. A selection of margaritas and Budweiser products is available through the full bar.

During the opening process, Bautista dealt with local vendors and openly expressed appreciation of Quincy businesses such as Stone’s Home Center, A.C. Electric, Inc. and Sanford Plumbing Service along with the zoning officials. It is his intent to continue working with Gadsden County businesses and encourages them to contact him about their competitive products for the restaurant.

Bautista and his family fully own and operate a total of three Old Mexico restaurants in Florida, two in Panama City and one in Perry, as well as three additional locations in Georgia and two more in Alabama. The family also shares ownership of over forty-five Old Mexico restaurants across the southeastern United States.
