HOUSTON (KIAH) — The iconic Houston Tex-Mex restaurant will soon be serving its latest order of enchiladas and margaritas.
The Spanish Village, located at 4720 Almeda Road in the Third Ward, will close on March 31st.
First slated to close in 2021, owner Stephen Rogers has kept the restaurant open while he worked on redevelopment plans for the property and surrounding land.
The details of these plans have not yet been disclosed.
The Spanish Village, founded by the Medina family in 1953, was a staple of the Third Ward. It is known for its retro dining room decorated with Christmas lights as well as classic Tex-Mex dishes.
“There is no doubt about the impact the Spanish Village has had on the Third District. The Medina family built something incredible and I’m honored to be able to continue that,” says Rogers. “Despite the closure of the restaurant, it is important for me and for the community to honor this legacy.”
The Spanish Village will be open from 11:00 to 22:00 from Tuesday to Saturday and will be closed from Sunday and Monday to 31 March. For more information about the Spanish Village, follow Instagram or call 713-360-7792.
