Learn a little more about your favorite restaurant!
Jose Mendieta, Jr. and his family have been in the restaurant business for over 20 years, and continue to bring traditional Mexican cuisine to Pearland with Emma’s Mex Grill. Following in the footsteps of his father and mother, Jose opened Emma’s in early 2010. Their family tradition includes recipes passed down for generations from Jose's family. Emma’s was named in honor of the late Emma Garcia, grandmother of Jose.
The Emma’s menu contains Tex-Mex dishes made famous at Mely's Mexican Restaurants (Jose Sr.) and Mex-Mex style dishes inspired from family recipes. There is an entire page in the menu dedicated to enchiladas, including the specialty enchiladas that are a Mendieta's family recipe. Other categories from the menu include Los Pollos (chicken dishes), Shrimp Platters, Los Especiales del Chef, Carnes Asadas and combination platters.
Emma's boasts one of the largest tequila collections in the state of Texas. The bar menu consists of handcrafted recipes and award winning margaritas.
