Our Story

Since its establishment in 1979, Spanish Flowers Mexican Restaurants has been a cherished culinary institution under the visionary leadership of its founder, Mary L. Bernal. A native of the Houston area, Ms. Bernal's deep-rooted passion for traditional Mexican cuisine was ignited during her formative years, as she spent her summers with relatives in the picturesque region of Guadalajara, Mexico. These idyllic summers were devoted to the meticulous study and mastery of authentic Mexican culinary arts, which have since thrived and continue to delight patrons at the esteemed Spanish Flowers Mexican Restaurant. With its inaugural opening in 1979, this restaurant, proudly family-owned and operated, has consistently gratified discerning palates, cultivating an ardent following by offering a delightful immersion into the essence of Mexico. At Spanish Flowers Mexican Restaurant, the experience is more than just a meal; it's an ambiance that transports diners to the heart of Mexican culture. The longevity of our dedicated team at Spanish Flowers Mexican Restaurants ensures that each visit is a warm reunion with familiar, welcoming faces, making every patron feel right at home. In 2009, the Hernandez family joined forces with Mrs. Bernal, collectively shaping and expanding upon the dream that originated in 1979. Their unwavering commitment to preserving the legacy of serving authentic, time-honored Mexican dishes to the families of Houston and Texas has resonated profoundly with our cherished clientele

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to our loyal customers for their enduring support, and we invite them to accompany us on our journey of delivering fresh, authentic Mexican cuisine within an environment that beckons you to call it your second home.
