Longtime Fort Worth Tex-Mex chain Pulido's will close all 3 locations
A longtime Tex-Mex name in Fort Worth is closing down all locations: Pulido's, a small Tex-Mex restaurant chain that's been around for 57 years, is closing all three remaining locations on October 14.
The owners posted a sign on the location at 2900 Pulido St., stating, “We will be closing our doors Saturday, October 14. We appreciate all our loyal customers and cherished employees for all the amazing memories created over the years. Hopefully we will be back! The Pulido Family."
The closures involve three locations:
- 2900 Pulido St.
- 5050 Benbrook Hwy.
- 1224 Precinct Line Rd. in Hurst
At one point, the family-owned chain had eight locations in outlying cities including Mineral Wells, Weatherford, Cleburne, and Stephenville; those that were not already closed succumbed to the pandemic.
Pulido's was founded by husband-and-wife Pedro and Dionicia Pulido in 1966. It became a favorite destination for its unassuming and affordable Tex-Mex with favorite dishes that included puffy tacos, regular tacos, combination plates, and house-made tortillas.
Hours for the final day on Saturday, October 14 are still TBD: A manager for one location said that "as far as we know it's going to be open regular hours from 11-8 pm," but the Pulido Street location is hosting a previously-scheduled event and may close early.
