I requested the Gluten Free Fish Taco Platter. It was excellent. I had it To Go so I could eat it on the plane. The Styrofoam To Go box didn't travel well nor did the salsa containers they gave me. It would have been great if the box had been taped shut or some other more secure container had been... More

Ive eaten several times at this location. - Suggest the Fajita Platter #1 with steak for $16.99. Could feed 2 if you arent a heafty eater. -There was ample seating, however suggest finding a table close to the windows as there will be less travelers interrupting your meal as the move through with bags. - Another plus is that is...

Excellent food. Had table side guacamole that was excellent. For entree I had chicken and steak fajitas. Both were excellent but the chicken was the best. Great chips and salsa also. Can't wait to go back!

The best fajitas I've ever had in my life. I love Mexican/ texmex, and this is the cream of the crop. I get so excited when I have a layover in Houston so I can eat at this place. The prices are very fair as well.
