Located off Highway 3, Gran Plaza is a family-friendly Mexican restaurant with great food! This Northfield location is the fifth for this restaurant company. We recently had an opportunity to sit down and talk with Adrian, the Northfield location Manager.
When did Gran Plaza open?
The original location in Faribault, also named Gran Plaza, opened in 2008. Then, six years ago, the Northfield Gran Plaza opened. The company also has restaurants in Owatonna, Albert Lea, and Waseca, under different names.
Having experience at other locations, what do you like most about the Northfield location?
The location, right on Highway 3, makes us very visible for people to see our restaurant. Also, our guests are very friendly and nice to be around.
How many people work at Gran Plaza?
We have 13 people that work at this location. Some are full-time and some are part-time.
Can you tell us about your menu? What do you think is the most ordered item by your customers?
We have a big menu ranging from enchiladas, burritos, quesadillas, tacos, fajitas, and, of course, margaritas. We do have a full bar available. I would say our customers’ favorite item to order is enchiladas. We make a lot of enchiladas every day. Our customers also really like the complimentary chips and salsa.
What is your favorite item on the menu?
It is difficult to decide but I would have to say the chimichangas.
Do you have customers that come on a regular basis?
We have a lot of customers that come every week and order the same thing. It is nice to get to know them and their names.
Does Gran Plaza cater?
Yes! We cater for parties and gatherings. You can order a fajitas bar, taco bar, etc.
Do you have any special events coming up?
We have specials throughout the week, so we always have something going on. Mark your calendar for our Cinco de Mayo party. It will be a fun time!
