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.

We visited a newly opened Jimmy Changas a few years ago and weren't too impressed, but we were in the Pasadena area and decided to try this location. We're glad we did. We had plenty of red and green sauce with chips on our table quickly. The food was among the best Tex Mex we've ever had. We had the... More

We absolutely love Jimmy Changas food as well as the fact that there is a play ground area for the kids since they get restless extremely fast. The drinks are really good too! There is a mango drink that is superb! And to top it all off...free ice cream when you leave!

We wanted to go somewhere we could have a drink with dinner and this place has very good service along with great Mexican food. Chips and Salsa was good. Decorated very nice for the mood of Mexican food and Margaritas. Had an appetizer and was plenty to eat also. Had to get a take out box. Music was nice also.

Yes .. I tried this for the first time ever at this restaurant and I must say that although it was a bit spicier then what I normally like, as an avocado lover it was just WONDERFUL .. I've eaten avocado many many many times and in many different ways, but this one is tops. If you are ever in... More

Go early, or you have to wait. The burritos, the marisco bowl, and the empanadas are really good. Ice cream cone for dessert
