Lista’s Grill is permanently closed
Dear Friends and Loyal Customers of Lista’s Grill,
It is with great sadness and a heartfelt sense of loss, that we must announce that Lista’s Grill is now permanently closed. After 47 years doing what we absolutely love, we must now retire. We had hoped that another owner was going to take over operations and reopen the restaurant, but sadly that plan has fallen through. The extremely volatile operating environment created by the pandemic simply proved more than we could sustain.
We want to THANK YOU with all of our hearts for all of the love, support and friendship that you have given to us over the past 47 years—the last 21 years of which have been filled with the joy of seeing your faces at our door on Mountain Road. We sincerely appreciate every customer whom we’ve had the honor to serve. THANK YOU for making Lista’s Grill one of Pasadena’s most popular local restaurants.
We would also like to offer our deepest gratitude to our many outstanding employees over the years including our chefs, cooks, front end managers, servers, bartenders, runners, and dishwashers. Our success was always a team effort.
To our colleagues and fellow restaurant owners, we wish you all much continued success! And we ask all of our valued customers to support independent small businesses.
We wish you all the best for a happy and prosperous future.
Kathy & Ruben Evangelista
Our diverse menu features premium house-cut steaks, ribs, seafood, crab cakes, gourmet salads, and burgers. Our executive chef, Ruben Evangelista, is a Colorado native, so we also serve authentic American Southwest favorites like burritos, enchiladas, and fajitas. We still import our fresh green and red chiles directly from New Mexico.
Lista’s food is available for carryout. View our full menu or watch our facebook page for weekly specials.
