La Escondida Mexican Grill
La Escondida Mexican Grill began with a God-inspired vision to start a restaurant where food and service would be of the highest quality, where customers would feel welcome and where employees would be treated with respect. It was Sergio Espinosa’s dream to start a restaurant that would represent traditional Mexican hospitality, great food and exceptional service. On August 31st, 1999, that vision and dream became a reality and La Escondida Mexican Grill opened the doors to its first customers. Sergio has run and operated the restaurant since the doors opened. In October 2006, La Escondida moved to Missouri City, Texas on Highway 6. It was a blessing to have this location. In 2016, Sergio chose to open a second restaurant location in Friendswood, Texas. Leveraging the success of the first restaurant, La Escondida Friendswood welcome local patrons with great service and delicious Mexican dishes. The restaurants continue to strive for efficiency, effectiveness and excellence. La Escondida Mexican Grills also pride themselves on being active members of the community.
Award Winning Menu
Nationally, less than one percent (1 in 1000) of the 2013 awards recipients for the Best Restaurants of Missouri City are certified as five-time awardees. This recognition is a result of the dedication and efforts to food, customers and employees. La Escondida is part of an exclusive group of small businesses that have achieved this award and La Escondida continues to win awards for exceptional service and a scrumptious Mexican food menu such as fajitas, enchiladas, tamales and more. Of special note, La Escondida also features a tasty weekday breakfast menu and a weekend brunch buffet.
