Good Tex-Mex dinner

This is a large Tex-Mex restaurant where you expect and receive representative food of the area. Homemade tortillas with guacamole made table-side. Carnitas were excellent. Overall experience quite nice.

Great atmosphere, friendly staff, good margaritas, and very good food. The salsa was tasty and the carne guisada cooked perfectly. (And if you want it via a drive thru, they got it!) Thank you very much to Bianca for taking care of me while being very busy tending the bar.

Ordered the Botana Fajitas for 2. Meat was nicely cooked but only came with rice and beans (which were the best tasting ones I've had in a while) and flour tortillas...which we had to ask for. Definitely not anything to write home about. Our frozen margarita was ok and had to keep on the waiter for refills on my soda... More

Just finished a family meal at Señor Jaime's (Monday, September 21st, 2015). I have to admit I'm bit of a Mexican food junkie and wherever I travel (which is quite a bit) I try to seek out good Mexican food. Looks don't matter much to me and the more authentic the better. We even sought out Mexican, and found some... More

The BEST Tex-Mex I've had in a long time, everything was fresh and not greasy. Light and crispy nacho chips. Clean and the wait staff was very attentive. Delicious and big margaritas. I'll take visitors here.

This is my most favourite mexican food (more tex-mex) restaurant in south texas. Great service, fresh ingredients, great food (beef tacos + chicken enchiladas is my choice). Always love to come back.

A friend took me here as a place for good Mexican food. Do not go here...there are many other places better. I had a taco salad and it was ok but everyone in my party felt like they were over charged for the food we were served. The sevice was slow too which was a pain during our lunch time.

Excellent service, excellent food and excellent ambiance. It reminds me of being in Cabo or Acapulco. It is one of the best Mexican food restaurants in this area, and I have tried them all. Try the tropical fajitas and finish with the strawberry nachos. Wow what a treat.

We used to go to this place at least once a week but in the last 6 months or so, the food seems to have lost its flavor to salt! The worst was the wonderful Tlapaqueno soup that has always been flavorful and full of spices. The last few times we ordered it, it was getting more and more salty... More

Food was small portioned,cold,no flavor ,too bland, just like the waiter,and as a server they should know when to fill drinks and customer shouldn't have to remind server every time ,overall that was a first and last visit !!!!!!
