The Cuellar family is famous for their Tex-Mex...But they'll be bringing something a little different to tables in Plano this June. Cousins Gilbert Cuellar Jr., John Cuellar, and Cory Cuellar are expanding on traditional Tex-Mex by bringing a new "Ranch-Mex" concept to town. Ranch-Mex was explained as Texas ranch casual cuisine in a Hill Country atmosphere. The menu at Cuellars' Fajita Ranch will pair cheese enchiladas with sides like mashed potatoes and gravy. Or chicken fried steak covered in chile con queso. Fajita creations can be customized with your choice of sauce and veggies.

Recognize that name from someplace? The Cuellar family is partially responsible for the popularity of Tex-Mex throughout America. They created the El Chico's brand in the 1940's, and in 1981, Gilbert Cuellar Jr. (round of applause) introduced fajitas to Dallas.

Cousins John and Gilbert opened award-winning El Corazon de Tejas in the Bishop Arts District in 2013, and are excited to now mix some of that traditional Tex-Mex with Texas ranch fare.

"Cuellars' Fajita Ranch is an opportunity to provide diners with the most popular things that I grew up enjoying as a child. Growing up on our family's ranch in Glen Rose, Texas, my father grilled steaks and chicken and my mother made chicken fried steak and fried chicken so what Cuellars' does is bring all of that together, "says Gilber Cuellar Jr. "I am not looking to innovate, but rather reflect back on my family's history with this concept and give guests the opportunity to dine on what my family considers traditional Texas Ranch-Mex cuisine.

The 6500 square foot space is decorated in Hill Country ranch house style with wood features, spacious dining room that can seat 175, dedicated bar area and private dining for 25 with A/V and private patio. Large outdoor patio will open in the fall that will feature Mariachi and Texas country live music.

Cuellars' Fajita Ranch is located at 3310 North Central Expressway (at Parker), Plano, Texas.
