About MARIPOSA GRILL & CANTINA
Mariposa Grill & Cantina first opened our doors as the Mariposa Inn in 1971 in nearby West Covina, CA. Mariposa has always focused on creating a family dining experience offering quality Mexican food at reasonable prices. Over the years we have gained a reputation for treating our guest like family and have established a loyal local following.

Raudel Guerrero (former Owner), started working at the Mariposa in 1972 as a waiter. Through hard work and dedication to his customers he became an Assistant Manager and eventually General Manager. Raudel's wife Julieta Guerrero began working as a hostess in 1978 and later that year they purchased a percentage of the business from their partner. In 1988, they became a 50% shareholder of the Mariposa and by 1999 they purchased the remaining 50% and became the sole owners of the restaurant. Over the years they both worked together to build a reputation for the finest Mexican food in the San Gabriel Valley. With their four Children taking an active part in the business they plan to remain in the community for many years to come.

In 2008, Raudel tragically died in an automobile accident. With the help of the family and support of their customers, the Guerrero's continued to run the business in his absence. As a family they worked very hard to build on the foundation that he started with plans to expand. 

Mariposa Grill & Cantina will continue to serve the finest quality in Mexican food. Mariposa uses the finest fresh vegetables, meat, poutry, seafood, spices and herbs and is cooked to order. Julieta Guerrero has focused on creating a high profile image and quality customer service. Mariposa is still family owned and operated right here in COVINA, CA. We take pride in treated every customer like they are right at home.
