Very good food!

Visited with friends and had the Baja Tacos. (Fish Tacos) They are delicious! The flavor was plentiful. Service and beer were good. Don't really have any complaints about this place.

Service was okay and the food was okay as well. We ordered queso in addition to the chips and salsa and it was okay as well. I ordered fajitas, and the sides provided were limited less than what I would have liked (No cheese nor lettuce / tomato). It took a little longer than desired to get our bill and... More

I'd never had bacon wrapped chicken fajitas before. They were pretty good. Had dinner here with a coworker.

I was pleasantly surprised by the menu variety (for lunch) and soon found something that sounded great. All our dishes appeared very quickly (in and out in 25 minutes just before noon). Tehy didn't look as appetising as their description but they were tasty.

We were there from out of town on Father's Day. They were pretty busy so we just sat at the bar and watched the World Cup. Even though they were busy, the wait staff was very nice and we received our food fairly quick. The food was good, but I just wished they had hot salsa as a choice with... More

I went here with two friends after exploring Battleship Texas. We ordered a large queso and beef fajitas for two for the three of us. It was very tasty, and definitely a good value. Also, the service was top-notch. Should I find myself in La Porte again, I would return.
