A great experience

Loved the food ... The table side guacamole was delicious ... Definitely a must have. My co workers got some margarita's that they said was excellent. A lot of choice on the menu... The servings were big. I would recommend this place ....a lot of vegetarian options as well

I've been many times but recently it seems that the quality of the service has gone down. I felt very rushed to hurry up and order to get me out the door quickly to turn tables. Wait staff was annoying - they kept coming to the table to try to take the food away the minute you put your fork... More

For these two items definitely worth stopping. A little pricey menu but the table side guacamole was fantastic! With avocados being in season a real treat. The waitress Sharon was very helpful and attentive. We were there for a late lunch so it was probably slower than normal.

Went for drinks and initially could not get a waiter. Then, could not get a waiter who spoke English. They got our order wrong and continuously tried to sell us on drinks we had no interest in. Ordered round of drinks that they finally got right. Did not eat here, but if the service I got was indicative of the... More

I have enjoyed visiting Escalante's Mexican Grillle at their Meyerland location and wanted to try their Sugar Land location as it is closer to home. The food is equally good at both locations, although I believe the mixed drinks to be slightly better (read: stronger) at Meyerland. The biggest drawback to Escalante's Sugar Land is its location; unless you are... More

The food at this restaurant is a step up from most of the Tex-Mex in the Houston area. The best beef fajitas for sure in the Houston area! Sooo good! Other delicious dishes are the enchiladas, soups, chile rellenos, fish, plantains etc. . . The list goes on. Fajitas Rellenos is one of my favorites! The restaurant is very comfortable,... More

We have visited other Escalante's and this particular one does not hold a candle to any of the others. I gave it three stars for putting in the effort. This is definitely your typical Tex Mex with a higher price tag! Margaritas mediocre yet they're 15+ a glass depending on the type of tequila that you like. For a very... More

Escalante's is a nice and different place for a Friday happy hour. The bar area is clean and the servers are nice. The frozen margaritas are cold and the appetizers are tasty and filling. Was looking for a place that was not crowed and out of the sun so we went into Escalante's for a cold margarita and some appetizers.... More

It is the most popular Tex Mex restaurant in Town Center area. Lupe Tortillas, Pappasitos and Chuy's (opened in 2014) are also good options in Sugar Land. Great margaritas and good food in a nice setting.

We loved this restaurant......the ambiance was great as well as the service and food. In fact, we spoke with the manager in charge about bringing the concept to Austin (where we are from). In particular, the way they designed the inside/outside bar area was really appealing. Great margarita!
