Had a late lunch on a Saturday afternoon (2pm-ish). It was pretty dead in there when we arrived which made me nervous, but as we progressed through our meal more people showed up. The ambience is trying hard to be Tex-Mex but it felt a little forced. The food we ordered was great. The posole was fantastic, and the nachos... More

The brunch was not good. Food was cold. Not a lot of selection. Place seemed shabby. I wouldn't recommend.

I know nothing about Mexican food, but to my inexperienced taste, the food here was very good. The outside looked rundown, and the interior was basic, but we didn't come here to look at the place. The staff were helpful when it came to selecting our food, which was tasty, and plentiful. My wife ordered a margarita, and when it... More

We started with the chips and queso. Everything was great including our enchiladas. Very fresh tasting. We would recommend.

I stopped in early on a Saturday night. The place wasn't overrun with tourists flocking 6th. I sat at the bar and had enjoyable experience. This wasn't the best Mexican food I've ever had, but it was far from the worst. I had the shrimp tacos which were tasty and served with black beans and rice. I was surprising please... More

My family of 4 had lunch here on a Friday afternoon because it's close to the convention center. It was almost empty and after tasting the food, I see why. The chips were yellow and obviously from a bag. Queso tasted like it was straight out of a jar. In fact, I had to mix it with the salsa to... More

Visiting from Dallas and came here..The food was decent but the kitchen staff could only get one order right out of the two we placed. I had to end up leaving for an engagement a few blocks away and had to leave my fiance at the table because they couldnt get our order correct.

I love trying new places and this one did not disappoint. The guacamole was perfect and the Sopes were very delicious. Good cocktail options that went perfectly with the cuisine.

We visited here yesterday, and had the best food! I had the grilled chicken breast with chipotle sauce that was to die for. The avocados on top added just the right taste. And the black beans...heaven! (and I'm not a super fan of beans!) Others in our party had shrimp tacos and shrimp diablo. Everyone was raving about the food!... More

What a wonderful restaurant! It is by far one of our favorite places to eat. My daughter loves the rice and beans and queso. I love the mole enchiladas...the best in all of Texas! The team members at El Sol y La Luna are not only professional, but down to earth and adult and kid-friendly.
