Doneraki Mexican Restaurant Celebrates 50 Years of Flavorful Tradition

November 28 2023

For half a century, Doneraki Mexican Restaurant has been tantalizing taste buds and creating lasting memories across the Greater Houston Area. Established in 1973 by founder Cesar Rodriguez, this family-owned and operated gem has become a staple in Houston's gastronomic landscape. As the restaurant proudly marks its Golden Anniversary, it's not just reflecting on the past but also embracing the future with the grand opening of its new location, "Fuego y Mar," in Katy, Texas.

The Rodriguez family, led by patriarch Cesar Rodriguez, his wife Magdalena Rodriguez, COO daughter Alexandra Rodriguez-Williams, and brother Cesar Rodriguez, invites everyone to join the celebration on Wednesday, November 29th, 2023. The festivities will take place at the new Katy location on 24205 Katy Freeway from 5 pm to 10 pm. This free event, open to the public, promises an evening filled with live music, entertainment, and delectable Mexican cuisine. Attendees can savor complimentary appetizers from 5 pm to 7 pm as they soak in the festive atmosphere.

Reflecting on the remarkable 50-year journey, Mr. Rodriguez expressed gratitude, stating, "We are extremely happy and honored to celebrate 50 years of service and support from our friends, family, and Houston's community." The Rodriguez family sees this milestone as an opportunity to give back to their loyal patrons and welcome new faces to experience the warmth and flavors that have defined Doneraki's legacy.

The celebration not only marks the Golden Anniversary but also introduces the community to the newest addition, "Fuego y Mar." According to Mrs. Rodriguez-Williams, "Fuego y Mar" is an extension of the Gulfgate "Authentic Mexican Restaurant" concept, offering a blend of classic favorites and exciting new additions. From an expanded seafood selection to a tempting dessert bar, a broader bar menu, and an enhanced patio, the new location promises an elevated dining experience. 

As the Rodriguez family prepares for the grand celebration, they invite the community to partake in the joyous occasion. "Come by our party for fun, music, food, drinks, and surprises," urges Mr. Rodriguez. Join Doneraki Mexican Restaurant in raising a toast to 50 years of bringing people together through the magic of Mexican cuisine.
