Irma's Southwest welcomes the Chevron Houston Marathon!


A culture of faith,
neighborly service & great food.

In 1988, Irma Galvan opened a small sandwich shop in an old
house in downtown's warehouse district. Soon after, she converted 
the menu to Mexican fare and created a welcoming environment rarely found in
restaurants. Along with her four children, Irma began a culture driven by faith, service, and food. Irma Galvan has
been featured on the Food Network and is a recipient of
the James Beard Award.

Irma's eldest son, Louis Galvan, and business partner,
Bruce Williams, opened Irma's Southwest in 1998. Penned
a 'city slicker' by the Houston Chronicle, it brought a sophisticated edge while staying true to the core ideals and quickly gained
the same elite reputation as the
original Irma's.

Irma's Southwest remains true to its core values of faith,
neighborly service, and great food. We continue to serve our
beloved Mexican fare, along with fresh seafood and
exotic wild game from the Texas Hill Country.

Blessings, Welcome & Enjoy!

Celebrating nearly
two decades of food
and fun in the heart
of downtown Houston, and steps from
Minute Maid Park!
