Best Tex-Mex around!

Tex-Mex doesn't get any better! Fresh tortillas made from scratch; freshly prepared guacamole; amazing flavors of spices for fajitas of all types. The Tres Leches is some of the best I have had. The chain is family owned and operated, and not widely spread. We are lucky to have one in my state... read more

I was in Houston for a week and this restaurant was recommended by friends. We visited the S. Loop West location where I ordered the Camarones Diablo and my husband ordered the Shrimp Brochettes.

It was good, pretty busy so check into reservations at least for weekends. A little over priced but the portions were large enough to take home if you were not staying at a hotel without a refrigerator

This is not authentic Mexican food. BUT, it is the absolute best TexMex in Texas. Service and quality are always the best. Cheese enchiladas. My kids and I love them, some of the best.

You will enjoy the fresh chips, salsa's and the fajita's- chicken, fish, or beef. It is pricier than other Houston TEX-MEX places in the area but the atmosphere is what the difference with it being very clean, relaxing and vibrancy of the area.
