Very good staff at the bar. Excellent margaritas and only had appetizers but they were good! Atmosphere is really nice, especially in the winter months with the waterfall lit up.

Introduced my daughters to Jimmy Changas and this is the only Mexican food we go to when they come into town. Their selection of plates is tops and no matter what we order, we are always happy. I don't know of anyone of us that has ever been disappointed. Lots of food for the money and the quality is superb.

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
