And fresh doesn’t only mean using the freshest ingredients we can get our hands on; it also means that we gently grill our chicken and steak to perfection. This keeps the meat hot & juicy giving you a freshness you can not only see, but also taste! It is our fusion of freshly prepared flavors that has kept customers coming back for more than 15 years, and also what has helped us win numerous media accolades and awards.

We opened our first Una Mas Mexican Grill in 1991 in San Jose, California and we’ve been growing ever since! We now have over 20 locations. Our goal will always be to serve unique Mexican favorites using only the freshest, healthiest ingredients in all of our authentic dishes. 

Una Mas Mexican Grill is a fusion of traditional Mexican dishes with an authentic and modern flair. From our popular Foghead Burrito (char-grilled chicken, with Tequila BBQ sauce, guacamole, rice, black beans, cheese, sour cream, roasted pasilla & corn salsa all wrapped in a warm chile-tomato tortilla) to our Margarita Salad everything we make has a distinctive flair that makes Una Mas a great place to eat!

Not only is the food unique and fresh, but so is the atmosphere created by our restaurants. The updated decor is steeped in authentic Mexican roots, yet with a modern and bright flair. 

Our decor is as important as the unique food that is hand-crafted every day. With open kitchens, open floor plans, colorful touches and earthy undertones, Una Mas provides a bright, hip and energetic ambiance that welcomes our guests.
