It all started with the flour tortilla. Cecilia Munoz dreamt of having a small space where she could place her tortilla machine and make fresh flour tortillas using her secret recipe. After many years of cleaning houses and saving money, she found a small location in the heart of North Side Fort Worth where she shared rent with other tenants who were running the restaurant part of the shop. It didn't take long for her to realize that she wanted to become the full owner and take over the restaurant piece as well, so she did. She then expanded the building and bought out the neighboring lots for parking spaces. Now, you will find a great updated building, perfect for your dining pleasure. Cecilia has remained faithful to her values and beliefs as a Christian and gives credit to God for all of her success. This is why the restaurant is closed on Sundays, and is how she came up with the name of La Bendicion, which means "the blessing".
We take tremendous pride in the fresh quality of our food. Very little is pre-made. Our staff works tirelessly every morning to prepare the delicious food for our customers. You will often see our employees sitting down to eat from our menu, or bring in their family to enjoy the food. This is because we stand behind our food and because it tastes like home to us.
We honor the different religious seasons and basic temperature changes. So you will often see off the menu options depending on the day of the year. Come join us for Lent where we offer different dishes with fish. Enjoy some atole during those cold months of December - January. We take a lot of pride in serving our customer's needs all year long.
