City leaders in Bellaire joined staff at the newly opened Tex-Mex restaurant Mandito's for a ribbon-cutting ceremony April 13 to celebrate the eatery's opening.

Mandito's—based in Round Top—was launched by Cinda and Armando Palacios, owners of Palacios Murphy Hospitality Group. It is open for lunch and dinner.

“We are thrilled to have the pleasure of introducing Mandito’s Tex-Mex to Bellaire and equally delighted to be able to reach new guests in the surrounding neighborhoods and Greater Houston area,” said Alex Curley, chief operating officer with Palacios Murphy.

Mandito’s specializes in Tex-Mex staples that are made fresh daily, including its signature burrito bowl; cheese enchiladas; fajitas; and plant-based options that include a Tex-Mex kale salad, kale and mushroom tacos, and crispy tacos made with Beyond Beef.

The venue, located at 5101 Bellaire Blvd., Bellaire, also offers classic margaritas and cocktails, Community Impact previously reported.
