Mo’s Irish Pub

The Cypress location celebrated its grand opening at Mueschke Road on Feb. 23.

Building on the success of its Vintage Park Location, Mo’s Irish Pub in Cypress offers customers the same authentic Irish look and feel. The shamrock green pub located off Mueschke Road in Cypress was designed as a near replica of the Vintage Park location.


With additional locations in Wisconsin and Indiana, this is the fourth Mo’s Pub overall and the second in the Greater Houston area.


The pub is named after owner Johnny Vassallo’s mother, Mo, who emphasized her Irish heritage when Johnny was growing up.


Although Mo’s offers a larger bar and patio area in Cypress—including a mezzanine for private parties—Vassallo said the menu and other aspects remain the same.  Menu items are made from scratch, and the kitchen staff was trained by veteran cooks to ensure the food’s taste and quality remains consistent, Vassallo said.


“We spent a lot of time perfecting the menu,” Vassallo said. “We tried over 60 different types of french fries before choosing one.”


Mo’s offers bar foods such as Buffalo wings, chicken fingers and sliders as well as traditional Irish meals, such as housemade shepherd’s pie, housemade bread and Jameson glazed steak, shrimp and chicken. Other menu items include burgers, wraps and salads. A kid’s menu is also available with prices starting at $4.99.


Over time, however, menu items and beer selection might change to reflect the community’s distinctive taste, Vassallo said.


With 72 beers on tap, 46 widescreen TVs and a performance area, Vassallo said he wants the new Mo’s location to become a favorite family-friendly hangout spot for the Cypress community.


The wooden booths and bar were handmade with reclaimed wood, Vassallo said.


“Everything we did was to build off our identity,” Vassallo said.
