Kelly’s has been a family-owned business since it was founded in 1952 as a drinking establishment, catering to local blue collar workers. In 1984, upon the retirement of the founder and family patriarch, Kelly’s shifted its focus to include dining. Varied cuisine – Mexican and American – reflect culinary traditions of our Sterling IL hometown. Kelly’s Mexican Restaurant is committed to using the freshest available items, and to cook for you as we do for our families.  READ MORE
