Lost it's luster

This place used to serve up the most delicious and meaty ribs. I've been busy trying out other local spots and decided to give them another taste. Very dissappointed. I ordered the big, beefy ribs. Got them home and I kid you not, mostly big BONES, with very little meat and plenty of fat... read more

Used to be great tasty food, free delicious salsa, reasonable price, fun atmosphere. Now it is bikers, party people and rowdiness along with below average food. It turned into a loud club. I think the chips and salsa were included at one time, remember the old pizza hut building? Too bad this place changed for the worse, but if they... More

Review of Taste of Texas: we'll they love their salt. A lot! The guacamole was saturated with it and the cap of the lemon pepper seasoning must have fallen off. The beans were cold and without flavor. The salad, well a grocery store could do better and what the pass for carne guisada was too salty and not what a... More

We pass this place all the time and decided to finally try it. We pulled up and the place was totally vacant! I thought it was closed. On a Saturday afternoon at dinner time? It turned out there was a reason for that. The moment I walked in I was greeted with attitude. I simply asked how does this restaurant... More

We used to drive by this place and it was always crazy busy. My husband and I decided to go the other night. It should've been a clue when there were no cars in the parking lot. The place inside Is really big but looked dirty. We walked up to the counter and waited and waited. No one came to... More

I tried the enchiladas they were average, everyone else tried the bar b q ribs they are good. Value is good for what you get. The tortillas taste homemade and fresh. I think it is a good value to take families as you can purchase a family meal. If you don't eat meat not the place for you.

Short Version: Good food especially their beef (and reasonable lunch specials), friendly staff and a laid back atmosphere (with a host of Tejano and regional bands several times a month). The building might be a turn off for some, but if you get can past that, it's definitely worth a taste...or two or three. Longer Version: Taste of Texas has... More

Fun atmosphere, good food. It's a big cavernous building, but it works just fine for finger-lickin' good food
