The Mexican restaurant Las Fuentes will open its newest location in Tomball as part of Las Fuentes Plaza, owner Rene Benitez confirmed to Community Impact Newspaper. Benitez estimated an additional four to five months for construction followed by an opening date at the end of 2022 or beginning of 2023.

Benitez described Las Fuentes Plaza as a combination of the Las Fuentes restaurant, which has two locations in Magnolia and Brenham, and his pizza restaurant Pizzaiolo’s, which has locations in Magnolia, Brenham and The Woodlands. The plaza will be located in a 26,000-square-foot building that Benitez owns and will contain an enclosed playground with air conditioning, he said.

Benitez, who has worked in the Tomball and Magnolia area for 23 years, said increased growth drove his decision to try the new venture here.

“I’ve spent a lot of time here; it’s growing; and I really like it,” he said.

Las Fuentes Plaza will be located at 20153 FM 2920.
