our story

The Mogan House was built in 1928 by Mr. & Mrs. Mogan. Andrew & Lisa Rebori transformed this empty Montrose cottage into the beautiful cozy one you sit in today. Just Dinner opened its doors for business in 2007. In the spring of 2008, Lila Rivas joined the Just Dinner family. Her experience gained from working in Houston restaurants helped Just Dinner blossom. After 20 years in the restaurant business, Andrew retired in the summer of 2011. The Reboris left their baby in the hands of Lila. Since August 1st, 2011 Lila Rivas is the sole proprietor of Just Dinner on Dunlavy. “I believe in creating a retreat where you can enjoy conversation, delicious, carefully-prepared food, in an intimate ambiance. We source from our organic garden and shop daily for the freshest ingredients.”
