LuLu's mission statement

LuLu's restaurants serve fresh Mexican cuisine in a casual, family-friendly setting. Using the highest quality ingredients, our diverse menu is comprised of home-style recipes reflecting our rich Hispanic heritage and multicultural traditions. LuLu's offers delicious, healthy, and award-winning Mexican food to the Bay Area.
The story behind LuLu's traces back nearly 40 years ago, with our commitment to delicious, authentic Mexican food. It also relates the energy and vision that its founders carried with them until the first restaurant opened in 2005. We believe you will agree that LuLu's offers a different approach to Mexican food for everyone in the Palo Alto, Los Altos, Menlo Park, San Carlos & Campbell areas. It's all about family-style meals, fresh ingredients and caring about the communities we serve. Come see us for great tasting Mexican dishes you'll love!
Natalie Richardson's idea for what was to become LuLu's Restaurants originated in Michoacan and Tayolita, two small pueblos in the heart of Mexico, back in the 1960's. It grew when a young couple met at a small Mexican restaurant in Tucson, Arizona in the early 1980's. It continued to grow when a family immigrated to the Bay Area in the 1990's. It finally came together in 2005.
Lourdes (Lulu) has been working with Natalie since 1996. LuLu's family comes from Michoacan and her history is steeped in the preparation and enjoyment of her native cuisine. Natalie's husband grew up in Tayoltita, a small mining town, for fifteen years. As Natalie and her husband courted each other while attending the Univserity of Arizona, they found one of many things they had in common was enjoying well prepared, traditional and fresh Mexican food.
The match was simple - Natalie's creativity, energy and understanding of the area she grew up in and LuLu's inspiration, talent and quality-oriented approach to creating wonderful family dishes. The recipe of these two individuals combining their talents resulted in the creation of LuLu's on the Alameda in 2005.
Natalie's and LuLu's passion is to prepare and serve the freshest, authentic Mexican food. They want you to eat healthy, leave happy and share your positive experience with your friends.

  • LuLu's Embraces Our Communities Through Service
    Who Knew That Mexican Food Could Put Smiles on So Many Faces? Creating delicious family-style Mexican food for our customers in Palo Alto, Los Altos, Menlo Park, and San Carlos is a part of who we are. Embracing these communities through service is comes naturally to us. Our LuLu's restaurants and our family of employees live in the communities that we serve. Our children and employees attend the local preschools, elementary, high schools, community colleges, and universities. Many educators that work in these institutions dine at LuLu's. As a result, LuLu's is especially interested in helping schools and non-profits within our communities. Annually, we donate hundreds of gift certificates and free Mexican food. We’ve found that it’s a great way to bring people together, and we're glad that our Mexican food makes people so happy! We love to give back, and we try to fulfill as many donation requests as possible. If you’re interested in learning more, please e-mail info@lulusmexicanfood.com. Tell us about your event, who it benefits, and why we should help out. Remember to include your contact information and mailing address in the email.
