Tired of the corporate world, and keen on the bar scene, Tina and Richie decided to purchase Montana's in Conroe Texas in April 2004. As the corporate world grew even worse, Tina and Richie wanted to bail out for good. With no savings and only multiple credit lines, they decided to build their second location in Humble ,Texas. The Humble location opened in April 2005.
In October 2007, they purchased the old Hitchin' Post Bar and four acres in Moonshine Hill Texas, just east of Humble. New Years Eve 2007 was the grand opening of Montana's Moonshine Hill Saloon. Two months later in February 2008, Montana's 59 Cocktails and Grill opened in Splendora, Texas in the old slaughter house and Barbecue restaurant on First St.
In July 2010, Richie was shopping at Lowe's in Kingwood TX, while loading his truck he noticed the bar accross the street which was once Jimmy's was closed. That is where Tina and He met in 2002. Calling the owner of the shopping center, and inquiring about the lease, led to Montana's 494 Express which opened in September 2010.
If you're into celebrities, you might like to know that our saloons have been graced with the presence of Willie Nelson, Larry Butler, Kis Kristoferson and many others. At our Humble location, George foreman's daughter sings Karaoke with us. Our good friend and legacy fighting champion, Patrick Hutton, comes each week for our famous steak night at Moonshine Hill. You history buffs will love to know that in the 30's, Moonshine Hill Saloon was called the Bird Cage, and legend has it that Bonnie and Clyde once visited the Saloon.
We have great drink specials, karaoke singing (no talent required), pool tables, darts, eight liners, tournaments, touch screen games, horse shoes, internet juke boxes, and more. Plenty of big screens for the sports fans. Most importantly, a friendly, knowledgeable staff. (Contact me personally if it's not so).
Montana's are great neighborhood bars. We like to think of each one as a "modern day Cheers" Please come visit, you won't be a stranger for long.
