Viva Mexico!

Went with my bride's Tops group and as usual a good time was had by all. I had soup and salad(borracho beans for soup) and even the lunch portion was almost too much. My bride had her usual fish Tacos(eewww!!!), and had enough to bring home some for supper. One of our had my favotite dish , a bowl... read more

The atmosphere is great, selection is varied, and food is hot and good. Sometimes you have to wait a few minutes during the busy time, but it is not that bad.

I went here with my friends and the food was good. I got the taquitos and they were delicious, but for the price I was paying I could of gone somewhere cheaper and gotten more food. This place is okay, but would only come here for the free ice cream.

Love going to Jimmy Changas. Have the best time. Great variety of food and drinks. Wonderful staff to wait on you. Patio for families with little kids so the children can play on the jungle Jim while waiting on their food. Nice bar to enjoy a drink and watch sports game. All around great place.

Good food in an a more upscale atmosphere than your typical Mexican restaurant. Outdoor seating is first come, first serve. That's our preference, as we can enjoy our dinner while the kids play on the playground. You can get the normal fajitas, enchiladas or quesadillas, but there are some more non- traditional options as well. The ahi-tuna salad is my... More

We drive by this place all the time but have never eaten here until our youngest daughter wanted to eat here for her birthday. We never came here because we thought this place had bad food but to our surprise the food was spectacular. It was a little expensive for Mexican food but I didn't mind since the food was... More

Good food. Ice cold beer. Great margaritas. The queso and chips are amazing. Its good to go around lunch time. Very little traffic. If you go after 5 you better be ready to wait atleast 30 minutes to an hour.

There are several tex mex places in Houston but this place stands above the rest. With homemade tortillas, fresh salsa, and superior fajitas you can't go wrong eating at this place.

Large Creative Menu. Outdoor Covered seating. Good service if moderate crowd. Food is excellent. Not the best Mexican Food in town but not bad for a night out and a change of pace. Enjoyable experience overall and clean Resteraunt.
