Our Story

Since 1979

Spanish Flowers Mexican Restaurants was founded by Mary L Bernal’s who is a Houston-area native, that has been fascinated with the traditional Mexican cuisine since her childhood, as she used to spend her summers with relatives outside of Guadalajara, Mexico. There she spent her time learning and perfecting the authentic dishes that came to flourish and that one can continue to enjoy today at the Spanish Flowers Mexican Restaurant.

Since its debut in 1979, this family-owned and operated restaurant has been pleasing palates and creating a devoted following, pleasing its customers with a little taste of Mexico, from the food to the atmosphere. The members of the Spanish Flowers Mexican Restaurants have been around for so long, that one can enjoy familiar faces each visit, and feel right at home. In 2009, the restaurant came to embrace the arrival of the Hernandez family, who in coalition with Mrs. Bernal, have managed to expand and nurture the dream that was born back in 1979. Together they continue to expand on the legacy of providing Houstonians, and Texans families the authentic dishes that they’ve come to grow and love.
