About Don Carlos Restaurants

Don Carlos was founded on January 18, 1986. Gerry and Christos Stathatos purchased the assets of a struggling restaurant at 416 N. 76th street in Houston, Texas. They liked the Harrisburg/Wayside neighborhood very much, a mixture of hard working people and small business. This they thought would be a great area for their new business.

The restaurant, renamed Don Carlos Mexican Restaurant and Cantina opened with a new look, and an enhanced menu. Their business was so successful, that in 1991, they added 1,000 square feet of dining area, increasing seating capacity to 170, while adding 1,500 square feet for a larger kitchen. They then added parking across the street from the restaurant to accommodate the additional business.

Continuing the growth of the company, Don Carlos Inc. acquired their second location at 8385 Broadway, in Houston, Texas in June of 1994. This became a very successful location as well. In 2001, Don Carlos Mexican Restaurants opened their third location at 6501 Southwest Freeway at Hillcroft in Houston, Texas, and in 2008, the fourth location was opened in Waco, Texas at 4651 Interstate 35 South.

Don Carlos Mexican Restaurants was built on pride and hard work. What separates Don Carlos from others in the restaurant industry is the quality and attention to detail. Ambiance, Quality, and Service are the focus of this company.

Currently with 4 locations, Gerry and Christos plan to expand in new markets in the near future.

”You will always enjoy Great Food and Drinks, Great Service, and a Great Atmosphere at any of our locations. Thank you for dining at Don Carlos Mexican Restaurant and Cantina”

  • ”Food service and ambiance always exceeds expectations, started off with a Model michaelada which was spice right and was excellent. Had 2 waitresses taking care of us and it was only a table of 3. Order the lunch special # 3 which comes with two enchiladas and one crispy tacos. A+ Right in the middle of Magnolia Park it does not get no more Authentic this." -Michael G.
  • ”Can never go wrong with the original location Great service and food will drive 45 mins for delicious food and service each time" -Leslie R.
