Grama’s restaurant reopens with old Tex-Mex flavors

NORTHEAST– You may remember the building as Irma’s, or even 59 Diner, but now that traditional Tex-Mex flavor is coming from a new chef, Oscar Reyes, owner.
Reyes reopened the restaurant about two months ago, and is serving a full menu of Tex-Mex cuisine from 6 in the morning until 3 in the afternoon, Monday through Saturday.

Although Reyes is a drywall contractor by trade, having worked for Marek Brothers, the city’s largest, in fact he has always had the food industry in his blood, and looks forward to a successful run with Grama’s.
Reyes has been chef at Bonita Gardents, Hotel Sofitel, and Anchor’s Marina Seafood. He also studied as a chef at the Culinary School at San Jacinto College. A native of Alvin, Reyes says that cooking has always been a tradition in his family. Now he serves dishes such as “Gramauh” brought him up on, on a farm just outside of Houston, including meatloaf, chicken fried steak, enchiladas, tacos and homemade soups such as Caldo De Res, and Caldo De Pollio. And of course the specialty, Menudo. Breakfast and lunch have many other special dishes, or ask for your favorite.
Grama’s is also available for catering, parties, family and business functions where a special location and good food is available.
