About Polanquito

Family-owned restaurant in Rice Military - Houston 

Our mission is to share a Little Piece of Mexico our (great or another word or no word) neighbors in Houston. 

Polanquito is a place where you can experience authentic Mexican food without having to leave Houston. And, if you have been to Mexico or are a native Mexican, Polanquito will feel like home. 

Brothers Santiago Navarro and Chef Diego Navarro opened Polanquito in April 2019. Polanquito is named after Polanco, a trendy neighborhood in Mexico City filled with upscale gastronomy. In Spanish, “ito” means little, so Polanquito means “little Polanco.” Polanquito’s menu has delicious food from many different regions of Mexico including Acapulco, Veracruz, Michoacan, Baja California, Puebla, and Oaxaca.
