NOW OPEN: Tularosa Southwestern Grill—the second Kingwood area restaurant concept from RC Gallegos, owner of RC’s NYC Pizza & Pasta—opened in early June.

The restaurant is located at 1522 Kingwood Drive, Kingwood and offers traditional southwestern cuisine. The menu includes New Mexican-style green and red chile enchiladas as well as fajitas, quesadillas, nachos, burgers and steaks.

“Creating the small-town, family feel of my native village of Tulle is important to me,” Gallegos said. “My mother, grandparents, great grandparents, aunts and uncles lived there in the warm, inviting, peaceful landscape. And I want to bring the food and experience to Kingwood.”
