Welcome to Hacienda

Hacienda El Mirador is the dream of two hard-working people who love the culinary world to death. Having recently moved their restaurant from Chicago to Peoria to enjoy a small, tight-knit community atmosphere, Lucas and Julia strive for the best.

Lucas brings his passion for cooking native Mexican cuisine to the kitchens of Hacienda El Mirador. Every customer who sits at the restaurant table will taste your culinary experience. At the young age of 8, Lucas’ love for all things culinary began to shine. At age 14, his family moved from Guadalajara to the United States, where his passions naturally increased tenfold. Today, Hacienda El Mirador is the culmination of that love and years of culinary experience.

On the other hand, Julia, who was born and raised in Bolivia until she was 20, always knew of her love for baking. Her passion, combined with Lucas’s, creates a delicious blend of two unique cuisines. Together, the two became an unstoppable force in the world of Mexican cuisine, especially here in Illinois.
