Last May, Casa de Montecristo Austin officially opened its doors, now it’s time to celebrate.

The new store will host grand opening parties on June 16-17 to celebrate the opening. Casa de Montecristo Austin is located at 3801 N. Capital of Texas Highway. It’s a 3,800-square-foot store, which features indoor and outdoor seating. The store does not have a bar.
