Someburros Mexican restaurant plans to open its newest eatery in Queen Creek.

Members of the restaurant chain joined with members of the Queen Creek Town Council to break ground June 13 at the new site, 20707 E. Maya Road. It will be the eighth restaurant in the chain, according to a press release.

The 4,000-square-foot Queen Creek location is expected to open in late 2016 and employ 50 people, according to the release. It will offer indoor and outdoor seating for 126 people, a call-ahead drive-thru window and flexible catering options for large and small groups.

The groundbreaking was part of a year-long expansion effort that coincided with the eatery’s 30th anniversary celebration.

“We’ve been scouting potential new locations all over, and we’re really excited to call Queen Creek home,” said Someburros President Tim Vasquez in the release. “There’s definitely an appetite for great Mexican food out here, and we can’t wait to serve our family recipes to the community of Queen Creek.”

The restaurant will serve its crunchy tacos, Pollo Fundido and other signature, from-scratch Mexican dishes.

Established in 1986 in Tempe, Someburros was started by George and Mary Vasquez. Being a family of five constantly on the go, the Vasquezes wanted to share their original family recipes wrapped up in a quick-casual concept. They have been joined by their three children in operating all Someburros locations.
