Zapien’s Salsa Grill Celebrates 19th Anniversary

Free Appetizer and Champagne All Weekend

Zapien’s Salsa Grill in Pico Rivera, CA is celebrating its 19-year anniversary the weekend of April 13 and 14 with a special treat to all patrons.

The weekend giveaways include a complementary chicharron appetizer as well as champagne to all guests. A prize package giveaway on the hour, each hour, will include Salsa Grill gift cards as well as other items.

On Monday, April 15, the actual day, “The Grill” turns 19; each table’s bill will be discounted by 19 percent.

“Come and enjoy good food and help us celebrate a big milestone in our existence,” said Marco Zapien, co-owner and head chef. “We are looking forward to seeing a lot of familiar faces that have supported us throughout the years. Without our loyal guests we would not be here. “

The Salsa Grill opened in 1994 and has since then dedicated itself to good food and customer satisfaction. They offer catering services for private dinners, business luncheons or any reason to have great food served to you and your guests.

Voted Best Mexican restaurant in the L.A area for five years, The Grill is an obvious local favorite, although truly authentic food, cooking classes and other great events has yielded a growing fan base outside of the L.A. area. Patrons from Orange and San Bernardino Counties are hearing the buzz.

“Very good food and excellent service are always worth the drive,” said Brandon Perez of Brea.

Chef Zapien is also a corporate chef for Los Angeles- based Melissa’s Produce, where he creates menus, manages and consults for sports and entertainment venues nationwide. He personally crafts menus for the Los Angeles Dodgers’ home games, and is an in-demand chef for many professional athletes and coaches including the San Diego Chargers.

Cooking is not Zapien’s only passion. He is dedicated to helping the community with any chance he gets. The Salsa Grill hosts fundraisers with local schools, and gives at least 20 percent back to the school, more than most SoCal restaurants. Toy drives for local churches, blanket drives, speaking engagements for school career days, and the support of the culinary program at a local high school are only a few ways Zapien proves his dedication to the community.

The Salsa Grill is located at 6704 Rosemead Blvd Pico Rivera, CA 90660, and is open Monday 7 a.m. to 2 p.m., Sunday and Tuesday through Thursday 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Friday and Saturday 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
