Molinos owners Mario Quiroz and wife Mara Garza are educating their customers about pairing wine with Mexican food. What’s better than eating a pirata or a plate of street tacos at Molino’s Mexican Cusine?

I can think of only one thing: Eating a pirata or plate of street tacos at Molino’s Mexican Cuisine with a margarita in your hand.

Now you can because after a long wait, Mario Quiroz, who along with wife Mara Garza owns the restaurant at 1064 N. Waco, has his liquor license. The restaurant now is serving a large selection of beer, wine, margaritas and mixed drinks.

Molino’s gets a strong lunch crowd, Quiroz said, but he’s hoping that the addition of adult beverages will help bolster the dinner crowd. Molino’s is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sundays.

The restaurant mixes up strawberry, peach and lime margaritas, and they’re educating customers about pairing wine with Mexican food — and such pairings work quite well, Quiroz said.

For more information, call Molino’s  at 316-977-9336.
