A family favorite since we first tried this neighborhood gem almost 20 years ago. Consistently good and the only Tex-mex restaurant I can recommend without exception.

A group of us ate here. All our food was excellent. Service excellent too. I recommend this place if in the area. I like Mexican food and found their food a cut above

Came for breakfast with the girl. Ordered queso flameado which is the bomb!. But when I got my breakfast the bacon was old rancid and the Amigas had to much cheese. Unfortunately, I have been here multiple times and never had this bad of a breakfast. I'll probably be back one more time but hopefully it won't end with this... More

This place is my favorite. It's Mexican food. Not TexMex. It is outstanding. We love everything we've ever ordered. Enchiladas. The chicken dishes are phenomenal. The sauces. Woah. The mushroom sauce and poblano chicken are creamy, dreamy delish! The red and green sauce are the best in Houston. Chips always fresh. The homemade tortillas are so amazing. And the service... More

Visit Houston about twice a year and have dined at several Tex-Mex places. First time here. Will not be the last. Came on a busy Saturday evening with party of six. No wait. Very good food and reasonably priced. Much better deal than some of the better known places. Atmosphere was very nice and service was quick and friendly. I... More

Went here for dinner. The food was pretty standard for what you would expect with the zillions of Mexican restaurants in the Houston area. Our server was hard working, but not very personable. It's also not in the best part of town, so maybe it is one of the better restaurants for that area?

Great experience here! Many delicious menu choices and daily lunch specials. Had the Tuesday special, chicken breast with mushrooms, bell peppers, and onion topped with melted cheese. Served with charro beans and delicious rice. Outstanding! Home made Tortillas, both corn and flour, were fantastic. Ordered the guacamole as an appetizer and it was fresh and very tasty. Salsas were delicious,... More

This is a great place for lunch. They have daily specials and a full range of menu items. Service is friendly and everyone smiles. Plates are filled to the brim with deliciously prepared items from fajitas to enchiladas.

PRO's: This restaurant gives you the complete Tex-Mex package for a family run restaurant with excellent margaritas and loads of different dish selections. Good value and large portions makes me wonder why I don't come here more often. Excellent service. The staff is willing to make menu changes to please the customer. CON's: If you come at peak dining times... More
