The story of Antojitos started in 1995 when recent business grad owner Mariano Cardona was offered to take over a struggling restaurant business in a rent-to-own basis. Mariano being the visionary entrepreneur he was decided to take on this challenge. Mariano’s recipe for restaurant success were hard work, great service and delicious food.
When the first year was up, the restaurant that once struggled was thriving and had become the top recommendation amongst locals looking for authentic Latin food. This accomplishment was met with a set back for Antojitos because now the original owners had changed their mind and wanted to take over the restaurant once more.
Antojitos had to find a new place to call home in 1997 and was fortunate to find a place not too far to maintain its clientele. The restaurant continued to thrive and had some wonderful additions. In the year 2000, Antojitos Restaurant was once again forced to relocate as they sold the building they were leasing. This time around owner Mariano knew he needed to do something that will give the restaurant the stability that it needed to continue to grow and solidify its roots to the community, so Antojitos purchased their current location at the corner of Howard and Columbus Ave. Another great addition to the restaurant was Doña Nuvia and her takeover of the bakery and kitchen. She has brought the delicious Colombian flavor that our customers love and keep coming back for.
We invite you to come experience our authentic Colombian cuisine and feel the home like environment that our clients have come to love for the last 25+ years.
