Kellie Messer started Texas Borders in November of 1996 with a concept to support the name. “Texas Borders” was born to sell great food from around its borders…a lil All American, lil Cajun, & lil from south of the border with awesome service & a great upbeat atmosphere. Kellie has created, with an loyal team, a “neighborhood Cheers” - where everyone knows your name, along with great food, atmosphere & service The famous “Hi’s & Byes” became a signature as well.
Kellie grew up in New Orleans & developed the love & passion of the hospitality industry from her late grandmother Mary Francis who had many restaurants & bars during her life span. Kellie followed in those footsteps working at Chi Chi’s of New Orleans all through high school. After relocating to Houston to further her passion she worked for Pappasito’s & then Houston’s Restaurant for 10 years prior to opening Texas Borders.
Jorge Mujico, the head of the kitchen, has created some new exciting recipes for this new location. Jorge, with the help of Kellie’s Mom Jo Ellen, perfected a gumbo recipe resulting in our most ordered soup “Jo’s spicy Gumbo”.
We at Texas Borders hope all our loyal customers & new guests welcome us at our new location & a new chapter in Texas Borders history. We look forward to many new years of providing excellent food, service & an awesome atmosphere therefore maintaining the neighborhood “cheers’ everyone has come to love! Thank you & please enjoy your “ Borders experience” & we look forward to a long lasting relationship.
