Our Story

Wild Horses Grill & Cantina was established September 2017. It's "The American Dream" for us,  and it means the world for us to follow our dreams, and to share those dreams with the world! 

We have traveled extensively all over the United States, Europe, Mexico, and South America. After having moved back to Kentucky to be with our families, we developed a strong desire to bring a form of unconventional architectural structure to our surrounding communities that we had seen so many times during our travels. The "Cargo Shipping Containers" were the foundation to our idea that led to "Wild Horses Grill & Cantina."

Over extensive conversation, we decided we wanted to develop a restaurant that would create a positive twist of structural conversation and art within our tri-state community. We wanted to create a warm family environment, a restaurant which caters to the personal wants of the community, and a place to bring our community together. Always being intrigued with Latino's culture, this gave us an opportunity to travel to Mexico to purchase authentic art, furniture, and textiles that would allow our customers the opportunity to experience the culture of Mexico while still in their back yards.

We want our children to look back and be proud of the business we have worked so hard to develop, while striving to bring unconventional positive growth to our community.

"Wild Horses Grill & Cantina" will be an establishment filled with fun, laughter, and love. We love people and are extremely excited to have an establishment that people can call home. Fresh Authentic Mexican food will be prepared daily with the finest quality and ingredients. Let us not forget "Chivi's Cantina", a bar that will always be a "5 O'clock Somewhere" type of place.

We would like to express thank you to all of the community that has been so very supportive and excited to share in our venture. We truly look forward to serving each and every one of you.
