My friends and I decided to have dinner at Texas Alaparia because usually we hear, it is a great spot to hangout and chill with friends. And the food is usually good. But it felt as if the staff were rushing my friends and I out the door, an hour before closing time. Besides that, the food tasted rushed also.... More

Texas Alaparia, a nice grill restaurant with good food, good service and affordable prices for quality food. One of the best dishes to try is the Nacho dip as an appetizer or the Quesadillas. I love the Tex-Mex concept and the live Mariachi band on Thursdaynight!

We went there as a family, but I don't eat meat. There was nothing I could choose of because everything is meat. I ordered a ceasar salad then had to send it back because it was soaked in dressing and very very salty. I got to the restaurant hungry and left the same.

Hi Kimberly, Thank you for your review of your last visit to one of our restaurants. We are glad to hear back from our customers (good or bad) as we strive to remain Curacao's number 1 Grill. It appears that your last visit to Texas Alaparia was not satisfactory as you have received a salad that was overdressed and salty.... More

We went to Texas Alaparia 3 times during the month we were there. Wanting something simple, this is a perfect spot. Chicken fajita was our favorite along with a couple of beers hit the spot. Staff were really nice. Lot of local folks eat there or order take out. Prices were very reasonable as well. We went to the one... More

We were looking for a Place not so touristy like in Punda/Otrobanda. And it was really worth it! Good local food for a good price and really friendly staff. We had funchi as Appetizer - very good ! We could hardly finish the amount. Since the Main dishes came each along with one funchie we could have saved the Appetizer.... More

Went there 4 times during my vacation. The people were very nice, the food was great (seriously try conch and the fried funchi) and at a fair price. They even had a live mariachi band one night, really added to the atmosphere. I recommend it to anyone.
