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

I'm no expert on Mexican or South-West food but definitely liked this place. Was taken here for lunch by a Houstonian as part of a party of seven. Our host knew the owners and we were looked after well but I got the impression this professionally run restaurant makes a point of treating everyone well. Our group included a couple... More

Well that was a first. I have never dined at a restaurant with no menus before. After bringing our drinks, our server gave us a run down of their offerings for the day, repeated the details when necessary, and patiently answered every question each of us had. The chips were fresh and the salsas served warm and even fresher. Try... More

It is so pleasant to eat in a restaurant where the food is delicious, priced well, and management ADDS to the overall enjoyment! Well worth your time, great location in downtown Houston (among others), and quick in and out if you are on a time budget.

I was at a conference at GRB and when it was over needed to eat. I found this Trip Advisor and decided to try it out. I walked in and was immediately impressed with the eclectic design of the inside. They sat me down immediately. I ordered queso. It was very good. Had a little meat in it. She asked... More

I thought I knew most of the wonderful Mexican restaurants in Houston...but then I went to Irma's this week! No menu, just great waiters who rattle off the entire menu to us, as we received warm salsa and warm fresh chips. The food is delicious! The service is great, and I think the street parking at the meters seems available.... More

This is a regular place for me and my co-workers in downtown Houston, across from Minutemaid Park. The owner Louis is always there working hard and always makes a point to try to visit with all the guests. The wait staff is excellent (many are Louis's family members), very knowledgeable and efficient. They have no menu just daily specials, which... More

One block from Astros stadium on texas street. We were promptly greeted by our waitress and seated. There are no menus so she quoted what was available. The margaritas were wonderful, obviously made with top shelf tequila. The chile rellenos were the best I have ever tried, and the con leche cake was wonderful. This is a family owned restaurant....
