La Familia Mexican Restaurant in Fort Worth Texas is a family business offering excellent Mexican cuisine in an elegant yet family friendly environment.  Al Cavazos and his family started serving the public in 1997.  Many of the recipes used and entrees served at La Familia have been in the family for generations.  La Familia’s secret is in the ingredients they use.  Everything is fresh everyday. 

At La Familia, Quality is Everything
Only the freshest and highest quality of produce, meats, and cheeses
are used to prepare everything on our menu.

Al CavazosLF Brand"There’s lots of good food on the menu, but if you don’t watch out, you’ll fill up on this fresh, bright-tasting salsa before the server — quick as he might be — even gets to your table. It’s just spicy enough, however, that you don’t want to do that without something more substantial than chips to eat with it."

"The salsa is made fresh throughout the day using a blender filled with tomatoes, onions, and other goodies purchased from a farmer’s market. Chunky enough to eat with chopsticks, this salsa straddles a chip with gusto and leaves a lasting impression. The owner is one of the nicest guys around, and he’ll gladly tell you his salsa recipe."

"Al Cavazos’ hearty greeting and filling fajitas (get there early) at La Familia!"

- excerpts from FWWeekly

"Plenty of regulars swear this is the best Tex-Mex in town, and it’s certainly the friendliest place around. Every diner is greeted at the door by owner Al Cavazos, who will shake your hand and ask after the kids and the job. His family fare, based on the food he grew up on in Laredo, consists of outstanding chicken-tomatillo enchiladas, shrimp flautas, fish tacos and chiles rellenos, the latter topped with your choice of tomatillo, ranchero or queso sauces. All entrees come with an addictive whole-bean soup, and the homey, fresh salsa is so good you’ll be tempted to drink it. Noteworthy noshing: camarones al mojo de ajo, shrimp sauteed with butter and lots of garlic."
