Before our story began in Brighton, Salome and Stella Montoya operated the first La Estrellita in Fort Lupton, CO from 1955 to 1968. In October 1986, their son John and his family returned to the traditon of providing authentic Mexican food that has long been a part of their family. Today, his daughter follows her fathers footsteps just as he followed his parents. It has been nearly three decades since opening in Brighton,and La Estrellita has won multiple awards ranging from our friendly service, to our authentic pork green chile. We can't wait ot serve you, and welcome your family to our kitchen table.
