Robby's Taqueria T.C. Mexicana Outside

Traditional Mexican

“The way that my food is prepared is very important,” she says. “Cooking each and every item at the moment that it is ordered ensures freshness that is unparalleled, as well as giving each guest a personal experience. I want every person to leave my restaurant knowing that their dish was cooked just for them. The cooks take their time to make every dish the best quality. But the most important thing to me is something that is impossible to buy – passion and love for my food. Mexican food reminds me of home, reminds me of my childhood and reminds me that home can be anywhere. I am happy that I can bring a small part of Mexico to Traverse City with me.

“I felt so happy and proud of my accomplishments. My goal was to bring a little bit of Mexico to this area. By opening my own Taqueria, I was able to share the tastes, smells and culture of Mexico that I miss so much, with the people here.” Many of the recipes that Robby uses are ones that she and her mother used when she was a child. In this way, she can stay true to her roots and always be reminded of home.”

Always Fresh Fare

Following a belief in traditional Mexican fare, all food at Robby’s Taqueria is cooked and prepared at the moment it is ordered. Nothing is frozen or pre-made. All of Robby’s food is prepared with fresh ingredients, most of it local to the Traverse City area. “I think it is important for my restaurant to not only make fresh options a standard, but to also support the local economy,” Robby says. “Authentic Mexican food is not always fast or easy, but my food is much like Mexican culture: rich and full of flavor.”
