The Herrera’s: a Family of Exceptional Restauranteurs
The Herrera story is one of humble beginnings, inspired by hard work, perseverance, and family commitment. In 1979, at only eighteen and without speaking a word of English, David Herrera immigrated from El Salvador to Houston, where he discovered his passion for the restaurant industry. He worked tirelessly to become a captain waiter at Tony Vallone’s premier restaurant, Anthony’s. While there, his ambition pushed him to learn everything he could about the restaurant business including cooking, the kitchen, and providing guests with an exceptional dining experience.
David and his wife Alicia, along with their three sons Marvin, Ubaldo, and Dario, saved for twenty-seven years to realize David’s dream of opening his own restaurant. That dream finally came true in 2006, when the Herrera family opened the doors of Alicia’s Mexican Grille. Named after David’s beloved wife Alicia, who he attributes his strength and success to, this high-quality Tex Mex restaurant quickly developed a fan following, with widespread support driving them to a larger Cypress location. Over the next 12 years, they have opened four additional Alicia’s locations in Katy, Spring, Houston and Sugar Land.
The Herrera family has continued to expand into new restaurant concepts since 2006. Dario’s Steakhouse & Seafood opened shortly after the first Alicia’s. Named after David’s youngest son Dario, this fine-dining restaurant invites guests to enjoy premium selections of perfectly prepared certified Angus beef steaks, fresh seafood, and an extensive wine list, all within an upscale dining environment in Cypress, Texas.
In 2015, Marvino’s Italian Kitchen opened, named after their oldest son Marvin. Launched initially as a full-service Italian restaurant, the Herrera family upgraded the concept in 2020 to an Italian steakhouse. Now Marvino’s Italian Steakhouse delights guest with premium steaks and chops, fresh seafood, and fresh hand-crafted Italian dishes. Their wine-country inspired cuisines, exquisite wine list, and stunning atmosphere is a unique find in Cypress, Texas.
Showcasing a Love for Tex-Mex
In 2017, the Herrera family opened an artisanal eatery named Galiana’s Bakery & Café, named after David’s granddaughters. In 2020, they transformed the bakery and café into Galiana’s Tex Mex & Agave Bar to share their passion for craft Tex Mex and cocktails. This boutique restaurant offers delectable Mexican street food, Tex Mex favorites with a unique twist, hard to find craft tequilas, and made to order specialty cocktails.
