Our History

Lunas Tamale Factory & Mexican Grill has been in business since 2000. The success of the business has been a result of not only hard work and dedication, but also the homemade recipes that were passed down through the generations. The business was started by San Juana Gonzalez when she sold hand made tamales door-to-door during the Christmas and Thanksgiving holiday seasons. Eventually, the demand for her tamales became so great that she began to sell to workers in construction sites. As the demand for her tamales grew, the opportunity presented itself and the first location was opened in the west side of Houston near Alief Clodine & Westpark Dr. With a menu that offers Mexican food made from scratch, food is served for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
