Redefined fine dinning with family, friends, and a menu crafted from the heart is a true recipe for a timeless experience.
Susana Morales is a hard-working mother, wife, sister, and friend. She has 35 years’ experience in the restaurant industry before she took the leap of faith to start her own restaurant. Inspired by the love for her family and the difficulty to find a place that will cater for her children’s varying taste buds, she set a goal to be a restaurant owner that will serve diverse needs of consumers and have an atmosphere for the entire family. After years of contemplation and through encouragement from families and friends, in 2018 she finally took the first step to fulfill her goal.
Santana and Mavericks is a unique restaurant with “A little of everything” in the menu. They serve French, Asian, Italian, American, and Mexican Cuisine. The business name has a personal meaning to Susana.
She connects her growing success with having family and friends on her side as she struggles to make her dream a reality. She stated that “family is more than blood; it is those people who stand by you in difficult times. Those who never leave your side and continue to support you in many ways’. Their countless advice is not ignored as they see how Santana and Mavericks continues to become a part of our community’s gathering place.
