I have tried this place twice before writing a review. I have to say both times the food was very good and the service was excellent. The first time was during a busy Friday night and the second on a much quieter Tuesday night. Both...More

This restaurant has a great atmosphere and a more unique decor than the larger chain restaurants. I highly recommend the tortilla soup. The food is good and the service is excellent. Very good value for the $$.

A huge outdoor area and many rooms inside. Fast, efficent, friendly service. The food is first class Mexican, with great salsa, bean dip and chips to start. Broad array of choices and the prices are modest. I will go back when next in Katy.
