Ep. 84 Senor Grubby’s: A Culinary Hub and Catalyst for Community Growth

It’s the home of award-winning tacos and community giving - hear all about Senor Grubbys' commitment to quality and philanthropy with owner Justin Jachura.

Meet Justin Jachura, proud president and co-founder of a batch of burgeoning and delicious restaurants everyone in Carlsbad knows: Senor Grubby's, Grubby's Poke & Fish Market and Los Tacos. The stomach growls in recognition…

Senor Grubby’s has played an integral role in the vibrant Carlsbad community and has successfully introduced a unique twist to Mexican cuisine (not an easy thing to do). Justin, and his restaurants, are committed to quality and authenticity, and that commitment has garnered much well-deserved recognition, earning prestigious awards like consecutive "Best Tacos" in North County. Deeply rooted in community values, Senor Grubby's actively gives back, reallocating marketing funds towards initiatives such as We Care Wednesdays, where a portion of sales is donated to charitable causes.

Adding to the restaurant's vibrant ambiance is the famous and captivating art wall facilitated by local artist Brian Snyder, who can be found in episode 18 How Murals Bring People Together. Displaying rotating works by various artists, the art wall has become a beloved landmark, exemplifying the community's creativity and diversity. It’s as much a part of Senor Grubby’s as the menu.

Justin also gives listeners the inside story of how the restaurant successfully pivoted and adapted during Covid, and how offering takeout and delivery services - and introducing to-go cocktails - saved the day.

An episode guaranteed to get you hungry for Grubby’s.
