Amigos celebrates 40 years with deals on food
To celebrate with our loyal customers, Amigos will offer a special to mark the anniversary of the first store opening.
Amigos is proud to announce 40 years of feeding friends and making memories by serving fresh, quality food. Roger and Janice Moore opened the first Amigos restaurant at 5500 O Street in Lincoln on June 17, 1980. Today there are 30 stores, all in the state of Nebraska, nine of which are franchised locations.
In 2017, the founders made an ownership change to ensure the future of the company. It became a 100% employee-owned business by launching an Employee Stock Ownership Plan. The ESOP empowers employees to take even more pride in their work and service, because they are developing equity ownership.
A lot has changed, but the faves you crave have always been here! Amigos is still selling favorite items that were on the 1980 menu; including the original Soft Taco, Enchilada, Crisp Meat Burrito, Crispos, Mexi Fries, Taco Salad, and Nachos.
To celebrate with our loyal customers, Amigos will offer a special to mark the anniversary of the first store opening. You are invited to the Amigos Drive Thru for $0.40 crisp meat burritos (limit 2 per car) from 11 am to 8 pm on Wednesday, June 17th. The number one seller, the original soft taco, will also be on special 2 for $3.99. Amigos sells well over one million soft tacos every year.
“When you think back over 40 years, it’s really all about the people – our great customers, the hard-working managers, young kids working their way through school, and people who take time to share a kind word. It’s been a challenging and rewarding journey. We’re so grateful to be doing business here in Nebraska and want to say thank you to our loyal customers who made this milestone possible,” said Janice Moore.
Due to the pandemic, dining rooms are still closed to the public to protect the health and safety of customers and our staff. In addition to offering drive thru service during these challenging times, Amigos has adapted to currently offer Take and Bake meals at Lincoln HyVee and Super Saver locations and offers delivery through third-party apps.
