Cisco's Salsa Company was created back in 2011 by restaurateur Laura Wilson that brought excellent Baja style Mexican cuisine and an amazing craft cocktail bar to Old Town Tomball.  A few years later Nonnie's was purchased and is progressively moving a chef inspired, fresh farm to table menu concept that matches our incredible ice cream and classic hand pumped sodas.  Both restaurants have been instrumental in adding two excellent culinary destinations to an area with immeasurable charm and character in Old Town Tomball.

With the range of talent and experience in this catering company, it has lead to an amazing amount of willingness and capability to provide our clients and guests with a custom created event that gives them exactly what they want.

Not only does the range, flexibility and access to our different restaurants and event spaces in our company help satisfy our guest need for choice and quality, but it also lends itself to being able to accommodate different budgetary requirements. We can create the finest seated dinner that you can find in the city, or an authentic Italian buffet, or a gourmet picnic lunch at the Old Town Tomball Depot for any amount of guests.
