Lopez is a family owned and operated restaurant that has proudly served Houston, Stafford, Missouri City, Sugar Land and beyond since 1978. Their mission is to provide their customers with delicious Tex-Mex fare and world-class service. One of their most popular and unique margaritas is the "Dos Piñas."
