On my way to an Astro's game, saw this on the corner and man this place was great! I ordered fajitas with rice and beans with flour totillas. All the vegetables were fresh, crisp, and full of flavor. Fajitas and Dos Equis beer was $23 and food was out quick once ordered. I have found my go-to place before an... More

This was my first trip. The atmosphere was great and the appetizers were awesome. The salsa and chips were some of the best I've experienced. Definitely a do over.

I'll be honest. When we first walked in we we're greeted very happily. There was a guy wearing an Astros shirt and an apron. He appeared to be the owner as I watched him greet everyone in the restaurant. As we we're seated he came from another table to pull my chair out for me. The chips, salsa and drinks... More

They are now open for dinner; so exciting! Came here before a concert at Toyota Center. The food was excellent and freshly prepared. Service was awesome, especially server Nick. If you're going to an event nearby, I highly recommend this place for dinner.

We made reservations for Irma's because of a baseball game, glad we did! We were moved to the front of the line and seated right away. I read on Trip Advisor that the Guac was excellent, it did not disappoint. My husband had Irmas tamales and I had fish taco's, both were very good. The waitress was so busy but... More

We are from New Orleans and are accustomed to spice and flavor and we were so impressed! Best in Houston hands down!!!! Thanks Louie for a fantastic lunch! Sea bass and tamales were... More

This place was remarkable. We were in town for business and came across this place on the way home. It was after lunch, mid afternoon, the hostess sat us by the kitchen and a older lady said no you will sit here and moved us where all the plants and a beautiful view. No menu and our waiter made a... More

We've eaten at the old Irma's so many times, they know us by name. This was our first visit to the "fancy Irma's" and the food and service was so good, I didn't want to leave! The guacamole is the best; the chips were perfect; our meals were amazing. We made reservations because it was game night, but we called... More

Interesting and very nice place. No menus. It's on a chalk board or the waiter will tell you what is good. Don't be fooled by that. It is upscale Interior-Mexican and super- good salsas. Guacamole is unique and delicious. Service is excellent and very friendly owner and staff. (His Mama started the place: Irma). Reasonably priced - but definitely not... More
