- A 37 year old dream...

La Mariposa brand, proudly represents a story of perseverance, hard work, family values and love. A story that began 44 years ago, when Mrs. Cervantes set out to sell burritos, in an effort to raise money for her one year old son's baptismal present, a pair of baby shoes. Her burritos would have such success that a few years later the family would venture into entrepreneurship, and open a tiny 20'x20' burrito shop at 1240 Ken Pratt Boulevard in the family's hometown Longmont, CO. That tiny shop, just like a butterfly, has flourished from its cocoon into a small chain of family owned restaurants, with locations in: Greeley, Lyons, Boulder, and Longmont called "La Mariposa Mexican Restaurant" which translates to "The Butterfly".


After thirty seven years of proudly serving the Northern Colorado community, we moved from our original location, to: 2033 Ken Pratt Boulevard, Longmont, Colorado. This will now be the new home of La Mariposa Mexican Restaurant, and as a thank you for all of your support these past 37 years... we want to celebrate this wonderful occasion with all of you.


Come FIESTA with us until 12 AM, as we unveil our new "Late Night Menu", which will be available daily from 9 PM until midnight! Enjoy new hours, new menus, and a new La Mariposa restaurant.


Thank you Northern Colorado, for 37 great years!

We hope to see you all at the Grand Opening!



The Cervantes Family
