A Midtown Feel with a Missouri City Price
When Heather Pratt was a kid, her vacations were cruises with extended family. Then during a stop in Cabo, her parents bought a house. Heather’s family vacations turned to trips to Cabo. In 2006, her parents started the Green Scholarship Program (GSP) in Cabo to assist local kids in their college endeavors. Six years ago, after Heather’s dad passed away, his ashes were spread on the beach behind the Cabo house. Her mom still goes to Cabo often with GSP. “Cabo is our second home!” explains Heather.
Heather is a 2009 culinary graduate of the Art Institute of Houston. Today, she’s opening a restaurant together with Chris Morris. “We were both born and raised here in Missouri City,” says Heather. “We want to see this community thrive. Since Cabo is very near and dear to my heart, our concept is Cabo Dogs Lounge & Grill: an amazingly fun and very chill full service restaurant and bar. Our food is a fusion of Cabo’s best, Baja Mediteranean, and Tex-Mex. My chef and mentor, Juan Eumir, lives in Cabo and has assisted creating some exciting menu items, including four kinds of ceviche with cucumbers and chipotle, mix and match tacos with choices like shrimp, fish and short ribs, shrimp chorizo rolls, and axis deer quesadillas. Our delicious desserts include tres leches and lava cake. During crawfish season, we’ll be cooking them right on the patio Thursday through Sunday.”
“Friday nights we’ll feature live music on the stage,” continues Chris. “And as for drinks, I’m an Old Fashioned guy...and I like my drinks made consistently and right every time. That’s why we’ve hired a mixologist to train our staff, and every menu item will be paired with a wine, a beer and a mixed drink. Our specialty drinks are named after our dogs, and we invite you to bring yours! Our patio is dog-friendly, and we’ve partnered with Texas Dog Treats to have all-natural treats for our furry customers. We’ve even trained our staff to watch your dog if you stop in alone and need to slip into the restroom!”
Cabo Dogs is a Midtown feel with a Missouri City price. Purchase a Green Scholarship Program pin for $25 and you extend Happy Hour by an hour every visit. All of the pin proceeds go back to the kids in Cabo. After 10pm, only the 21+ crowd is allowed, and a late night menu is available. Cabo Dogs has also partnered with Sugar Land Shuttle Service to provide $5 safe rides home for those that live within a five mile radius.
“We are looking forward to being a huge part of this community,” says Heather. “We have several fundraisers planned, and are always open to more ideas. We can’t wait to meet you all!”
