About us

Mother and son, Emma and JorDan, worked for years to create a Tucson favorite — home of the table-side salsa and Best Margarita in Town — Guadalajara Original Grill. Their passion project, Calle Tepa, is a fast-casual Mexican outpost with a street-style twist. The restaurant is inspired by Emma’s childhood growing up in the vibrant culture of Jalisco, Mexico, where the aroma of home cooking filled the air and was always a way of life. Built from these fond memories, the mother and son team wanted to bring this exciting culinary world here for you to enjoy. Calle Tepa, an homage to Tepatitlan where Emma’s mother was raised, is a fresh-from-scratch kitchen, where home-made tortillas are cooked before your eyes, delicious family recipes craft the menu, and the ice-cold beer and specialty margaritas are all part of the experience.
