When working to make a family-operated restaurant successful, it helps when each team member takes on the jobs they are comfortable and familiar with, to help the business flourish.

Luis Scheker, Jr., an employee with Texas Margaritas in Zionsville, enjoys working behind the scenes.

Texas Margaritas“I really like doing the office computer and paper work,” he says. “It’s what I’m good at, and I can help the restaurant run more smoothly that way. My father, Luis Scheker, and his business partner, Saul Ramirez, are the co-owners. They really focus on the high quality of the Mexican cuisine and running the business. I think they have picked a great location.”

Scheker says Texas Margaritas has been welcomed with a warm and enthusiastic response from the Zionsville community.

“We are in the Maple Grove retail area, and my dad and Saul thought this was an ideal location to be in, because it is always continuing to grow,” he says. “What makes this location unique is that it is prospering, and attracting more families who like the homes and schools in the area. It’s very special. People are really building new homes and businesses here, and we wanted to be a part of that growth.”

Texas Margaritas already has regular customers who return often.

“Not long after we opened, we had a lot of people tell us they love the food, and were planning on coming right back, which they did,” he says. “They have been bringing their friends, and that’s great. People are talking positively about us. It means we are giving them delicious Mexican cuisine at a good price. What brings people back is one major thing – the food. You can talk about other stuff, but it all comes down to the food.”

Scheker’s family is passionate about the restaurant industry.

“Our first Texas Margaritas was started a year ago in Indianapolis,” he says. “That location has been successful because there was a lot of effort to make sure all of the food is very fresh and served fast. We use fresh ingredients. We focus on making sure everything tastes delicious. We don’t have any plans for a third restaurant right now because we are busy enough making sure the restaurant and the food continue to be outstanding.”

“Everything here is really good,” he says. “We have a Favoritos Mexicanos menu, which includes our Pollo Favorito, a grilled chicken breast topped with several ingredients. We also have a Three Amigos, which is three burritos, and Pollo Fundido, two deep-fried flour tortillas. Those are just a few of the items from our big menu. We are always looking to meet new customers, so we ask our regular customers to keep telling their friends about us.”
