Woman holding a burrito at Olympus Grand Crossing in Katy, Texas



Did you know that the word burrito is Spanish for little donkey?

The name burrito, as applied to the dish, is possibly derived from the little bedrolls that are often packed on donkeys.

If you would like to enjoy a burrito for dinner, the best nearby restaurants include:

Alicia's Mexican Grill

David Herrera opened Alicia's Mexican Grill in 2006 and named the eatery after his wife. He immigrated to Houston from El Salvador, and it's where he discovered a passion for the restaurant industry. David learned everything he could about cooking and providing guests with an exceptional dining experience. His hard work paid off as Alicia's has many loyal customers. The menu includes the senor burrito which is filled with ground beef, refried beans, and Monterey jack cheese. It's topped with chile con queso sauce and served with Mexican rice.

Los Cucos

Owned by two brothers who came to Texas to live the American dream, Los Cucos offers authentic Mexican cuisine at the best possible value. Guests also receive attentive service, and the restaurant is a fun place to meet friends for a leisurely meal. The eatery is open nightly until 11:00 p.m., and the burritos are filled with chicken fajita or tender beef. They're served with rice, tomatoes, and guacamole.

El Jarrito

Known for offering quality food and a fun experience, El Jarrito is a family owned eatery where the food is made to order using fresh ingredients. It's one of the best Mexican restaurants in the Houston area, and when it opened in 2011, Governor Rick Perry attended the ribbon cutting ceremony. Try the green chicken burrito with shredded chicken, cheese, refried beans, and pico de gallo.

In addition to these enticing restaurants, Olympus Grand Crossing is also near renowned museums and top shopping destinations. To call our apartment community home, please contact us to discuss our leasing options.
