This is our go-to restaurant for decent Mexican food in Meyerland. It is possible to eat healthy and avoid the chips and nachos. The fish special includes vegetables and salad. It is delicious! The service is average, with young inexperienced wait staff. The drinks are good. Often they attempt to upsell the drinks, recommending the most expensive tequila for margaritas.... More

Reliably good food. Nothing fancy, but good for a weekday meal. Feel better about the tortilla chips by getting the baked variety.

Had lunch on a Sunday and was pleasantly surprised with the quick service and very good good. I thought the 19 bucks for a small fajita was steep but they were really good. The coffee was some of threat I have ever had!

My family and friends love Escalante's; it's one of our regular hangouts. My teenage daughter has rated their flour tortilla the best anywhere! My favorite are Pat's Mexico City salad with Shrimp, tortilla soup, fresh guacamole made table-side, Kopi's Greek salad with salmon, chicken nachos, polle verde tamales, and the flan is the best in Houston! Their chips and salsa... More

I absolutely love Escalante's. This was my fourth visit and this time I brought friends from the office, 20 to be exact. We had a great time eating great food with great customer service.

I'm very picky about fish tacos and I love the ones at Escalante's. They aren't breaded and you have a choice of corn, flour and whole wheat tortillas. The sides are also options so you don't have to have beans and rice unless that's your choice. Their guacamole is also delicious as are their many salads. There are always specials... More

This is probably my favorite chain Mexican restaurant and I go to Pappasitos often for work. They have the best white queso. I always get the beef enchiladas and they are yummy. I have never had service issues and also very reasonably priced.

There were 2 of us, for dinner, great service and accommodating with changes made to an order. Chicken enchiladas with tomatillo sauce was excellent. The quail tacos also were finger licking good! Great home made warm chips and salsa to start our meal off was great too!
