Antonio Alarcon and his family moved to Illinois 20 years ago from Hidalgo, Mexico. After living throughout Illinois, he found that Peoria genuinely felt like home. He was drawn to the kindness and support of its residents. “The lifestyle that Peoria provides is like no other,” said Alarcon. Antonio wanted to be part of the community and share his passion for cooking. He opened his doors in July 2020 intending to provide great quality food on the go. Catrina’s Express is family-owned and operated and focuses on providing fresh ingredients along with great customer service. Found in the heart of downtown Peoria, Catrina’s Express provides a unique experience of original recipes found in Hidalgo. Breakfast burritos and quesadillas Hidalgo are among the favorites with customers. The green salsa is also a must-try menu item!
