I definitely would have gave this restaurant a five if only I didn't spot the main head manager stick his finger in another coworkers ear usually when working with food or eating in a restaurant I wouldn't expect that is very unsanitary but other than that I would say the food was 100% real hot amazing tasty I am definitely...

Passing through on the way to Galveston. A couple of miles off the toll road but worth the trip! You think you've gotten lost and then pops up this oasis, Jimmy Changas! Wait was about 40 minutes on Friday night. Several large crowds but they can handle it. I will say I was a little nervous about the fried avocado... More

Took a couple of work colleagues for lunch here. Quick service, huge Texas portions and three different dishes all of which were very good. Not haute cuisine and never will be, but decent food at a good price. Well satisfied

Waited 40 minutes for a table on Friday night; figured it would be longer. Service was slow and spotty. Drinks were good, so were chips and salsa. Food was industrial Tex-mex, nothing fancy and no better or worse than say On the Border. If you order some combo plates, you get two servings: one "cold" and one "hot". Confusing if... More

I love this place! The entrees are large, the drinks are fantastic, and the wait staff are very friendly. It seems that some restaurants attempt to save money by skimping on the portion size. When you order fajitas at this place, you get plenty. There's a little playground and waterfall in the front for the kids. I'd suggest trying to... More

It has very good Mexican food at a reasonable price. I like the stuffed avacado. I love the green salsa!

Maybe the best restaurant experience I have had. From the entry way with all the landscaping, outdoor seating, to the cool lights on the inside our wives took pictures of, to the excellent food, to the ice cream on the way out, someone has done their homework and combined the best of all Mexican food restaurants into one happening place....

The food here is great but the wait can be long. A friend and I chose to sit at the bar so we were able to eat pretty quickly. The corn tortillas are a wonderful compliment to any meal so we usually order them. I had the Juanita which had enough food. Love their guacamole. Everything I have had has... More

The food here is good but it's a very popular restaurant and usually crowded with a wait time. Love their tortilla soup! Very good!! Atmosphere is loud and noisy so if you are wanting romance, pass this one by. If you want lots of good food, this is your place!
