Popular 77-year-old Tex-Mex stalwart Molina’s Cantina will open a third location in Fulshear late next year.

The self-identified oldest family-owned-and-operated Tex-Mex restaurant in Houston will open a new location at 6300 FM 1463, near the soon-to-be completed West Park Tollway. Molina’s bowed out of its Washington Avenue location in September 2017, but its new spot at the forthcoming Shoppes at Cross Creek sounds like an exciting replacement. Molina’s was the first tenant to sign onto the Clinard Properties project and will be housed within a 5800-square foot corner space. The new locale will feature a patio and breezeway that will offer shade for al fresco dining, and the restaurant will seat about 220 total.

As for the menu, Molina’s same classic Tex-Mex and Mexican favorites will make the trek including enchiladas, fajitas, tacos, and their signature Jose’s Dip, along with margaritas, Mexican lagers and more.

“We’re excited to join this growing community between Fulshear and Katy,” says Ricardo Molina, a third-generation owner. “With great schools and more families moving to this area, the growth has been phenomenal. We hope to fill a void for full service family restaurants.”

Molina’s anticipates a late 2019 opening. Stay tuned for more information as the project develops.
