“Baja Sur Fresh-Mex and Tequila Bar is an exciting addition to Creekside Park West in Creekside Park Village Center, and we are pleased they have selected The Woodlands to introduce their restaurant into the Houston area,” said Rip Reynolds, Vice President of Leasing and Commercial Land for The Howard Hughes Corporation. “Baja Sur is also the first Tex-Mex restaurant in Creekside Park, which provides a dining option in walking distance for residents and their families.”

Set to open early summer, Baja Sur Fresh-Mex and Tequila Bar will present an upscale, yet comfortable atmosphere where friends, families, and co-workers can gather to enjoy a unique menu of Tex-Mex flavors as well as a variety of creative and sophisticated cocktails.

“Baja Sur will offer a hand-crafted, chef-inspired take on traditional Tex-Mex cuisine backed by an impressive selection of unique tequila-centric craft cocktails,” said Executive Chef and Operational Partner Coco Hogue. “My inspiration for the menu was pulled from a variety of Hispanic and Latin cultures to create dishes that will beautifully showcase fresh, locally-sourced ingredients using traditional techniques from various regions for all to enjoy.”




Owner John Amato, added, “We are very excited and proud to be a part of The Woodlands community. We have assembled a top-notch team that has worked very hard, and we have high expectations for the Baja Sur concept. We hope our guests will love it as much as we do.”

In addition to Baja Sur Fresh-Mex and Tequila Bar, John Amato along with Jason Daly own two other Houston-area restaurants, J. Henry’s and Craft 96.

Baja Sur joins Cinépolis Luxury Cinemas, which opened in November 2019 at Creekside Park West, located at 26543 Kuykendahl Rd. just south of Creekside Forest Drive.
