Three generations of fathers and sons have run Molina's Cantina since 1941!

HOUSTON, TX -- A Houston restaurant institution is celebrating 79 years in the community.

It was back in 1941 that Raul Molina Sr. and his wife Mary opened their first restaurant on West Gray Street. Now, his three grandsons run the business. The longtime employees have also had a big impact on the restaurant.

A waiter came up with the idea for "Jose's Dip" - chile con queso blended with spicy taco meat. It is now one of the restaurant's most popular orders.
