“We are a family in business,” says owner Mario Sorto, who founded MasFajitas over 20 years ago with his brother, Albert Sorto. “Our first location opened in Caldwell in 1997, and we dedicated ourselves to locally sourcing our ingredients and produce whenever we could. We take pride in preparing our salsas, guacamole, pico de gallo, shredded chicken and many other menu items from scratch.” For the two brothers, opening a fifth location to accommodate their growing business has been an adventure. “We opened a location in Taylor in 2005, Round Rock followed in 2011 and then Georgetown joined the team in 2016. Now that we’re opening here in Killeen, we want people to know that we offer only the best service and the best food,” said Mario.

MasFajitas is replacing the Red Onion Indian Bistro that originally stood next to McAlisters. According to Mario, he and his brother were good friends with the owners of the Bistro, whom offered to sell the brothers the building. “We’ve been contemplating where to open, and whether or not to come to Killeen for the last two years.” said Mario. “The encouragement we’ve received from many of our friends in the area is what brought us here. For MasFajitas, our food and service is number one—after all, you can get rice and beans just about anywhere. But what you can’t get anywhere is what you’ll find right here, a personal obligation to treat our customers like family.”

MasFajitas offers a variety of TexMex dishes, ranging from steak rancheros, enchiladas verdes, shrimp a la Mexicana, and much more. The restaurant is open Monday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., with extended business hours during the weekend. For more information on MasFajitas, call 254 699 0006.
