With all the chain restaurants taking over the country, it's nice to visit a little place with family charm, especially when the kitchen produces such tasty dishes. I like the fact there is no menu, the waiter will let you know what's available that day; go ahead and pick something, it will be delicious!

Next to Minute Maid Field in downtown Houston, this is THE best Mexican food in Houston, maybe the state. No menu, they'll tell you what's being served. You'll find out the price when the bill arrives, but no worries...they're fair based on the quality. Irma herself is still in the Kitchen making awesome tamales and guacamole. The crowds can be...

Their dinner hours are limited, usually to nights the Astros are playing but the food is really great. The fish is always fresh and very tasty. Sea bass is our favorite. The atmosphere is casual but the food beats much more formal and expensive places.

Irma's was recommended to us by a federal detention center officer on break a block away. We were headed to Minute Maid Park for an Astros game and had scheduled ourselves some time for lunch. Irma's is open only on weekdays for breakfast and lunch, except it opens for three hours before Astros home games. As out-of-towers, we didn't know... More

I came here twice for lunch. The salsas are great especially the roasted one which is hotter. The chille relleno was a little different. The enchiladas an shrimp tacos wre great. No menu everything is recited.

Lemonade is pink full of fruit and highly recommended. They don't have menus so we ordered not knowing prices which I don't think is a good idea. But food was great, service was outstanding, in a nice casual atmosphere near minute maid field. 2 burritos and a lemonade were $43. Typical for downtown.

Went to Irma's for lunch, prior to heading to the airport. They were busy with work day locals, which is always a good sign. I was seated promptly with no wait. Now here comes the odd part, they have no menus. That's to say, no written menu. The waitress tells you what they have on the menu. This was fine,... More

I was here on a business trip at the GRB convention center and saw the rave reviews on TA for Irma's. This location is only open for breakfast and lunch. If you are looking for a fresh, fun and lively experience for lunch and are close by go for it. Parking is metered as there is no valet. Other reviewers... More

Was taken here for lunch while on a business trip to Houston. Excellent food and service. The chips and heated salsa is really good. The guacamole actually tastes like avocados, and the bottomless lemonade is very tasty. Pay attention to your waiter since there is no menu or prices published. I had the fish tacos which were really good. Everyone... More

This was my second visit to Irma's. both were for lunch meals and both exceeded my expectations. The service was awesome from the moment we entered until we departed. Someone welcomed and seated us as we walked in. Our slater glasses were continually refilled and our service spoiled us with attention. Irma's staff make you feel like part of the... More
