Decent Mexican food

The food is better than average, but certainly not gourmet Mexican. It was good for family meals, accommodating to children.

We were in a group of 6 and before even we sat, the waiter started asking for the drinks order. Even the silverware and menus were not offered before the waiter started asking for drink order. It was around 8:30 pm and the place was half empty so found no reason for the waiter to be rushing like this

Great food and service as always. Waiters are always very helpful in anticipating needs and the food is always perfect in taste, temperature, presentation, and quantity!

Good service, great food and fun location. Restaurant seemed clean, no waiting - even on a Friday night. One of the best Mexican places I've eaten.

Great Queso. The camerones rellenos are an excellent choice! The guacamole was lack luster. Good margaritas

TXBohemian knew that Escalante's at Town Center would most likely be packed on a Friday night, however, we decided to give it a try anyway. Had just enough time for a 'rita at the bar, before we were seated. Even though every table was filled, and several large groups were dining, our waitress was efficient and timely with our order....

We had a group of ten...no reservations for lunch on a Friday. Top that with a couple of vegetarians and a vegan as well as 4 individuals who spoke little or no English. Everything was just as each person wanted. The service was wonderful and the food fresh and delicious. Seriously could not have expected any better. The restaurant was... More

When you eat here, you must start with the white queso dip it is delicious and addictive. Tacos al carbon are great. The atmosphere is fun. It is nice to sit outside as well.

Went here for business lunch and it was good food. The best part is you could talk and it wasn't overly busy so you could hear each other. Food was good.

The queso blanco is the stuff dreams are made of. Splurge for the table-side guacamole and compliment it with a frozen margarita with a sangria swirl. Sit outside for good people-watching!
