Texas Borders Bar and Grill (20940 Katy Freeway) opened on Black Friday 1996. The popular restaurant is known for great food, live music, where Katyites and guests can always find a fun time.

“I picked Katy because I loved the community and had just purchased my very first home off of Fry Road in 1995,” says Texas Borders owner Kellie Messer.

Messer had been working for the Houston location for 10 years when she started to think about opening her own restaurant in Katy.

“I thought it would be awesome to have a local grill & bar where friends could gather locally and "new" friends could be made,” says Messer.

Texas Borders has always been involved in the community through sponsoring countless local sports teams, organizations and businesses. They have also provided meals to local hospitals, law enforcement, and first responders.

“Currently charities dear to our heart are the Ballard House in which we have fed 30-60 people every month for the past 3 years. We have also support Fulshear Family Hope & Krause School for Girls,” says Messer.
