For twen­ty years, La Char­rea­da has offered authen­tic Mex­i­can cui­sine for the Mar­i­on com­mu­ni­ty. Start­ed by Socrates and Alvaro Mon­taño, La Char­rea­da began with a vision to bring part of their Mex­i­can her­itage and cul­ture to Indi­ana. In addi­tion to the Mar­i­on restau­rant, Socrates owns restau­rants in Bloom­ing­ton, IN.

Despite the restau­rant busi­ness being an ever-risky ven­ture, Marion’s La Char­rea­da has remained fam­i­ly owned and oper­at­ed and locat­ed in the same build­ing for the twen­ty years of its exis­tence. Twelve years ago, Juan Car­los and his broth­er joined the part­ner­ship and helped to gen­er­ate a new vision for the restau­rant — striv­ing to con­nect more inti­mate­ly with the Mar­i­on com­mu­ni­ty. They didn’t want to just be anoth­er Mex­i­can eatery, but a restau­rant that proved their com­mit­ment to devel­op­ing rela­tion­ships with each and every cus­tomer, rela­tion­ships that would extend across gen­er­a­tions. Addi­tion­al­ly, La Char­rea­da hopes to be involved in con­tribut­ing to the entire social and eco­nom­ic devel­op­ment of the Mar­i­on com­mu­ni­ty.

One of La Charreada’s cur­rent own­ers, Juan Car­los, explains that some of La Charreada’s great­est suc­cess­es have been serv­ing our com­mu­ni­ty, expand­ing our busi­ness with anoth­er loca­tion, and remod­el­ing the inte­ri­or and exte­ri­or of our build­ing.”

La Char­rea­da offers more than good Mex­i­can cui­sine; the restau­rant offers a place for the Mar­i­on com­mu­ni­ty to gath­er and build rela­tion­ships with one anoth­er and the restau­rant staff. Mar­i­on is proud to be home to La Char­rea­da for twen­ty years and hope­ful­ly many more to come.
