los primos

If you’re searching for a traditional Mexican food option, look no further than Los Primos! Our goal is to create authentic Mexican dishes that you would find in Los Primos owner Edith’s home kitchen of Colima, Mexico. There are so many reasons why we love our traditional Mexican food, and we think you will too! Still not sure? We’ve come up with a list of reasons why traditional Mexican food is always a healthy option. 


Mexican food brings a whole lot of nutrition to the table! Our recipes are based on fresh ingredients like chicken, tomatoes, peppers, and cilantro. And don’t forget that guac! Add some fresh lime juice and hot sauce to your favorite menu item, and you have one flavorful bite. Besides, our fresh ingredients supply many vitamins and minerals to your body, improving your overall health. For example, onions and tomatoes are great sources of Vitamin C. While avocado is on the fatty side, it is rich in fiber and vitamins B, E, and C.

Protein, protein, protein!

We can’t forget the protein we offer in almost every menu item! Protein improves muscle health and growth, as well as overall energy for the body. Not into eating red meat? No problem! Protein is found in fish, cheese, and even black beans! We offer many ways to enjoy protein on our menu and a varied choice of sides. 

Fresh Ingredients

If you didn’t already know, we love our fresh vegetables! Mexican food is chock-full of fresh ingredients and grilled vegetables. As a result, our dishes are full of fiber, vitamins, and minerals. If you’re looking for an even healthier option, you can omit certain menu items like sour cream or cheese.
