Domenic Laurenzo has created an ambiance that provides perfection in dining comfort and artistry. This is conveyed through hand-painted portraits of his family placed throughout the restaurant, a majestic spiral staircase and hand crafted lighted stars that hang from the ceiling.
In the early winter season of 2012, Executive Chef Domenic Laurenzo and his father Roland Laurenzo were approached by a restaurant owner and friend who sparked interest in bringing El Tiempo to the suburbs of Northwest Houston. After the success of their three El Tiempo Cantina locations in Houston’s inner loop and their well known Laurenzo’s Prime Rib restaurant, it was no easy task deciding if expanding El Tiempo Cantina to Northwest Houston would be viable.
However the decision was made to move forward, and in March of 2012 the El Tiempo Cantina Vintage Park in Northwest Houston opened to the public - the crowds swarmed in. It was a true eye-opening experience, as the Laurenzos had no idea how excited their fans would be to have a location in the area. The El Tiempo Cantina at Vintage Park is the largest El Tiempo Cantina. Its design is also crafted by Executive Chef Domenic Laurenzo and his very talented team of contractors.
Domenic Laurenzo has created an ambiance that provides perfection in dining comfort and artistry. This is conveyed through hand-painted portraits of his family placed throughout the restaurant, a majestic spiral staircase and hand crafted lighted stars that hang from the ceiling. Masterfully crafted wooden tables and chairs perfectly accent this already amazing locale. Vintage Park is also the only El Tiempo that features both upstairs and downstairs dining and patio areas. There is also an exhibition bar where you can sit and dine.
The menu consists of the family’s original Tex-Mex offerings such as our famous Fajitas, along with a few twists. Executive Chef Domenic Laurenzo does not neglect his Italian heritage, as his Paella Rice is a decadent blend of Spanish and Italian flavors. You will find all of your Mexican favorites such Fajitas, Enchiladas, Tacos, Queso and so much more. If you have special dietary needs we welcome you to dine with us, as not all Tex-Mex or Mexican food is un-healthy. We at El Tiempo pride ourselves in providing nothing but the freshest ingredients, every day. Our customers with Gluten Free & Vegetarian diets are always welcome!
