Connie’s Mexico Cafe, the oldest family-owned Mexican restaurant in Kansas, recently celebrated its 51st birthday and still prides itself on family-owned recipes and more than generous sized servings. It’s not your typical chain Mexican restaurant that overdoes the decor and wrecks the ambience with loud music, low lighting and servers in bright colored garments. This is a place where you come and enjoy a well-prepared, home-cooked meal. The story of the family, headed by matriarch Carmen Rosales, has been well-published and, just in case you missed it, you will find it on the menu’s cover page.
If you’re looking for good authentic Mexican food, large servings, and low prices, Connie’s is your place. If you can keep your focus on the food and not the furniture, floor, or parking lot, you’ll go home “muy contento” (very satisfied).
