A family-owned and operated restaurant, Amigo Family Mexican Restaurant opened in February of 2001 in Stanwood, WA. A gathering place for the community and a place where family and friends come to mark important milestones such as graduations, life achievements, etc., Amigos always strives for the most delicious food and excellent customer service.
Owner, Jose Amador, saw the potential in Stanwood as a place to grow a business. Given Stanwood’s location, set off from the Interstate, and between Camano Island and near Warm Beach, it was the perfect location for a restaurant. Not only is it a place to bring Stanwood residents together, it also draws permanent and seasonal residents from the greater Stanwood area.
Jose is deeply involved in the greater Stanwood community. He lives in the city, his children attend school here and he believes in giving back. Team captain of last year’s Relay for Life team, parent volunteer at his son’s elementary school and involved in Stanwood’s Soap Box Derby, Jose’s community involvement is well known by those who know him.
Just a few of the services Amigos provides to the community are fundraisers for community members, sports teams, schools, and support for events in the area. Specifically, Amigos has organized taco feeds to allow kids to attend camps, participated with other businesses as a gold sponsor for Glass Quest, organized “Amigo Nights” at the middle school in which 20% of the evening’s profits are donated to Stanwood-Camano schools. The highlight of “Amigo Nights” is that teachers come in and serve their very own students! In addition, Jose believes in helping those who need help the most which are our young and elderly populations. Amigos does this through its donations to the Senior Center and the Little Achievements program in all Stanwood-Camano elementary schools in which students are chosen for their achievements and receive a free meal at Amigos to celebrate.
Amigos also believes in spending time with those you love so next time you are looking for a place to meet friends and family think of Amigos and come in for crispy tacos, a scrumptious chop chop salad or one of their many fajita or burrito dishes. Jose would love to see you there!
