Avion Azul is a family-owned Mexican restaurant located inside the Mason City Municipal Airport. We provide a modern Mexican feel with fresh ingredients, craft margaritas, and table-side guacamole!
We are two brothers and co-owners, Catarino and David Martinez, who have been in the restaurant business our whole lives. Our father owned a restaurant in our home state of Florida.
Years ago, we decided to move to the Midwest and David opened his own Mexican restaurant, Ay Jalisco, in Forest City, Iowa. David was the chef and Catarino was a manager, which lead to a successful restaurant.
Opening our own restaurant together is a dream made into reality!
The location inside the airport was the perfect place to be able to service the Clear Lake and Mason City
areas as well as provide a good place for travelers to eat at.
Meaning Behind Our Name & Logo
Our name, Avion Azul, means "Blue Plane" in English.
Our logo is inspired by the talavera, ceramic produced in Mexico. The isotope design combines traditional with modern and geometric lines. The surrounding square refers to a map in reference to the airport as well as the four cardinal points to indicate the destination. And of course, the plane in the center represents our name and restaurant location inside an airport.
