Alicia’s Mexican Grille was founded by the Herrera family in 2006 and has expanded to five locations, including its most recent in the Richmond/Sugar Land area. For National Margarita Day, Alicia’s is bringing back its 12th Anniversary limited edition Millonario Margarita. It’s made with Avion 44 tequila, fresh lime juice, organic agave nectar, and Grande Gala. Alicia’s says this rita is a $40 value. Your sticker price? $12. The special lasts February 22 through February 24.
The fifth outpost of Alicia’s Mexican Grille is set to open at 20420 Southwest Freeway in Richmond, though the restaurant is describing the outpost as located in Sugar Land. As at the other Alicia’s locations, the restaurant will serve fajitas, margaritas, and more Tex-Mex classics, and plans for tequila dinners and chef’s tasting menus are set to follow once the restaurant is open. No official opening date has been set, but expect for Alicia’s to arrive in February.
Alicia’s Mexican Grille, 20420 Southwest Freeway, is slated to open in February. This foray into the Sugar Land/ Richmond area will make the fifth location for the family-owned and operated restaurant which was founded in Cypress, Texas in 2006 by David and Alicia Herrera. David Herrera came to the United States with his parents from El Salvador at the age of 18 and cut his culinary teeth working with Tony Vallone at his eponymous restaurant, Tony’s. Herrera and his wife saved for 27 years to open their first restaurant.
The family prides itself on making everything from scratch, including the salsa and tamales. The beef fajitas are made with certified Black Angus beef. The full bar offers beer and wine, but savvy patrons know to order a blood orange margarita or the Casamigos skinny rita.
The new restaurant will feature the same earth tones and high ceilings of the other locations, with the design coming from architect Mike Treadway and interior decorator Deborah Goolsby, who also collaborated on other restaurants in the Herrera portfolio, including Dario’s, Marvino’s and Galiana’s.
David and his wife Alicia, along with their three sons Marvin, Ubaldo and Dario, saved for twenty-seven years to realize David’s dream of opening his own restaurant. That dream finally came true in 2006, when the Herrera family opened the doors of Alicia’s Mexican Grille. Named after David’s beloved wife Alicia, it quickly developed a fan following. Within a few years, they gained tremendous popularity and support which required they move into a larger Cypress location. Over the next few years, they also opened three additional Alicia’s locations in Katy, Spring, and Houston.
Herrera brings to Sugar Land and Richmond a robust menu that maintains a variety of Mexican classics like their famous sizzling Alicia’s Fajitas made with Certified Black Angus beef, plus USDA steaks, Gulf seafood like the Alicia’s Molcajete, delectable chicken plates like the Pollo Con Rajas, chicken served with sauteed field mushrooms, julienned poblano peppers, onions and Monterey jack cheese, and several healthy conscious options like Alicia’s Citrus Salad and Caldo De Marisco, a Mexican soup with fresh seafood and vegetables. The Herrera family prides themselves on their made-from-scratch menu including their salsa to their famous tamales, as well as handmade tortillas made in-house daily.
