Good Ole Tex Mex, Nothing Fancy

I visit both Tony's on Ella and Tony's on the Katy Freeway near Barker Cypress, and never had a bad experience. They food is really good Tex Mex without frills or a trendy menu. You can't go wrong with one of their combinations, typical enchiladas, tacos, tamales with rice and beans. You can... read more

We were actually headed to another restaurant, but it was CLOSED! So.... we drove N on Ella and saw a bunch of cars in front of Tony's Mexican Restaurant. Plan B! We went in, and it was delicious😀. I loved their thin corn tortilla fried chicken flautas. We had the Batanus Appetizer Platter which was really too much for two,... More

I haven't been here in over 5 years and I think it was okay, however for 2 house margaritas and 2 entrees should not have cost $45 + tip. A family of 4 would be paying close to $75.00! Not going back for dinner, however when they start seven breakfast I will give it a try!

Please remind the waiter to ask the cook to mix the tortilla soup before serving it.. Otherwise it is too watery..! Chips are fresh as well as all the dishes they serve.... and, yes.. don't miss on their flan.

Always friendly service and good, fast hot food. Love the fact that they are closed on Sundays to take time out for family, church, ect. Love the cheese enchiladas. We frequent the Ella Blvd location.

Good Mexican food. Can get busy after 6pm so get there early. Shrimp cocktail is excellent. Fajita's and Margarita's are tasty. Not open on Sundays.

Our party of eight, traveling from New Orleans to Austin, accidentally stumbled upon this place searching for an emergency bathroom and was very skeptical of a Mexican restaurant named Tony's! However, it proved to be some of the best Mexican food we have eaten in a restaurant. The atmosphere was very pleasant. The dining and restroom areas were very clean.... More

It was the weekend and very crowded so we had to stand and wait for a table for about 20 minutes. The food was very good and the margaritas on. The rocks were great ! Will go back again on a less crowded night.

Great frozen maragitas. The cheese enchiladas are cheesie and hot. The food is fresh. The fish tacos are crispy with a delicate flavor

Informal design and atmosphere with standard Mexican dishes on the menu. Quality is average and waiters the same. Probably a good place if you a very much into Mexican food but we don't believe the place will recruit new fans. All in all an average place with average good food, you will not regret it but nothing more either.
