Great atmosphere, great service & great food. The appetizers & entrees are huge and expensive. My suggestions is to split your order - if you eat it by your self you can not walk.

Hands down I gotta say this location has great service. The food came quick and was fresh. The chips and salsa were warm and fresh. Great atmosphere. The fajitas have always been cooked to perfection as well as the tortillas and shrimp brochettes. I gotta say I love this place. Cons: which is the reason they didn't earn the last... More

Great date night place. The service is always up to par and the food good classic tex-mex. Good space not too crowded and good size parking lot. I done classic fajitas and my lady always like the enchiladas. Good prices too.

The Del Mar is a meal for two.....chicken and beef fajitas and bacon wrapped brochette shrimp. The spicy, melted butter is to die for! This meal never disappoints. Tip; since this restaurant is notoriously busy, just belly up the bar and eat your dinner there. Fast service, TVs, friendly bartenders that keep your drinks filled and make sure you are... More

Where TexMex is taken to an art for the palate. You will not leave hungry nor disappointed. A bit on the pricy side but worth it, as you get what you pay for... in every luscious bite.

I have given them 3 chances and everytime it disspointed. Their food is way too greasy and not a good flavor to it in my opinion. I also thought that their ground beef was way too spicy.

The rest of the menu is fantastic, especially the shrimp brochette! Love the table-side guacamole, too. They have a very well-stocked bar. The music is a little loud for my taste, not to mention the happy birthday singers, but all in all it goes with the festive atmosphere of the place. Oh yeah, you can call ahead and reserve a...

I lived in Houston 15 years ago, and at that time, they had the best Tex-Mex food in town! I was very disappointed with the service (sat at the bar), and the quality of their entires I order. I started with the tortilla soup, it was served without any chicken and avocado's (as described), and overloaded with white cheese! I... More

This was right beside our hotel so we tried it....Very good choice. It was a Friday night and we were seated within 15 minutes. We had our drinks in minutes and water and soda refills were quick all night. I wasn't in the margarita mode but my friend said his was great. They brought out some chips and salsa real... More

Based on a recommendation from a friend we ended up eating here and it was wonderful. The atmosphere is typical of a Tex-Mex location and I was a little apprehensive but I was quickly amazed by the table side guacamole which was great, as well as the hot chips and fresh salsa. I also ordered a shrimp and crabmeat cocktail... More
