Good food and great margaritas

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.

Tony's is a great choice for Tex Mex at a very convenient location if you live in the Heights or Oak Forest areas. The beef fajitas are superb and the margaritas are delicious but very strong. Only negative would be it's not very spacious and it can get very crowded on the weekends.

The food here is mediocre at best. The margaritas are too strong and tastes like pure alcohol. It is VERY loud in this place and having conversation with your meal is impossible. There are lots of loud kids and non-sober adults talking as loud as they can. The parking is impossible, but there is a valet service. If the food... More

I went here after reading that it was among the top ten in Houston Mexican food restaurants. The enchiladas were said to be their specialty so I had one of each type (beef, cheese and chicken). I found the food good but not exceptional. I do give kudos for the service however. My tea glass was never empty nor the... More

I see lots of very positive reviews but that was certainly not our experience. We had a large (13 folks) party on a Friday evening. We explicitly told them multiple times to seat us tables of 4 whenever available even if not at same time since we had no expectation of having one table. After everyone else in the waiting... More

I love to get the big appetizer and share... Make sure you do not order lunch or dinner because it is a lot of food. At times we just order two big appetizers and no more than two ritas! Hay caramba!
