Celia and Perfecto immigrated from Jalisco to the Sunset District and never looked
back. In 1960 when Celia’s first opened up shop it was half the size and served only
American food. Shakes, burgers, french fries and coffee - all favorites of Perfecto,
but nothing new or exciting. After being open for awhile, Celia finally mustered
up the courage to serve her customers some enchiladas. They were a hit!
As time progressed, more and more items were introduced to the menu as combination
plates. Celia's of the outer Sunset is the first of the many Celia’s Restaurants,
which are all family owned and operated independently from one another. Celia’s by
the Beach is currently managed by Celia and Perfecto’s grand children. After a painstakingly
slow “clean-up” that lasted all of 2011 and some of 2012 we are glad to be back open.
Aside from using fresh ingredients and family recipes, our grandparents Perfecto
and Celia taught us to treat our customers like family. We’ve carried on that tradition
and invite you not only come in for some great eats and drinks, but to leave your
worries at the door and join our familia! No worries amigos, once you eat with us
you are family!
