Maize now has more Mexican food.

Pariso Tex Mex opened recently at 5255 N. Maize Road, in the Maize Center strip mall, which also has Maize Discount Liquor and Edward Jones.

The restaurant is owned by Vilma Barcenes, who has previously run Mexican restaurants in Nebraska and Georgia. She moved to Maize in October to open Pariso Tex Mex.

The restaurant specializes in standard Tex Mex dishes like fajitas, tacos, tamales, quesadillas and more. It also serves molcajetes and shrimp cocktails.

There’s seating inside for about 36 people. The restaurant doesn’t have its liquor license yet, but Barcenes said she hopes to have it soon.

Restaurant hours are 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesdays through Sundays. Barcenes if offering a 10 percent discount to customers who like her Facebook page.
