When Rene Hidalgo, owner of Montrose’s laid-back Maria Selma Restaurant, announced he would be closing his Mexican eatery in July 2016, the restaurateur didn’t take long to unveil the vision for his next concept. Shortly after shuttering to revamp the interior paint and art, Hidalgo debuted his new venture, Texas Shrimp Shack.
The new restaurant, which is now counter service, is part Mexican, part Texan with a heavy Gulf Coast seafood focus. There, fans will find a variety of shrimp offered by the pound and at varying spice levels. Maria Selma’s margaritas carried over to the new menu, though the tequila offerings have since been refined and the beer selection expanded. Other menu options include snapper and salmon dishes, ceviche, shrimp enchiladas, burgers and wings. Don’t miss the covered patio on nice Houston nights.
Texas Shrimp Shack is open for lunch and dinner, daily.
