“Cheap offers, not a ruinpub like I expected”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

We had a nice hour here although it wasn't quite what I expected. Worth a visit if you're in the area.

“Nice enough bar”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

Went here for drinks, after reading the recommandation in Lonely Planet. It's a nice enough place, though the selection of beers isn't very good, which is quite common for Budapest's bars, unfortunately. Like most places, they also played bad pop radio on the stereo. Maybe my expectations were too high, what with the Wim Wenders/Ry Cooder name connection and all(!).

“One of the greatest bars of Budapest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

It is such a gem in the overpriced, unnecessarily and desperately "trying to be posh" Raday street! It is not like the other bars in that street that are hunting for tourists to rip them off. It is worth visiting Paris Texas in any season, during the summer you can sit outside, and when it's cold there's plenty of tables inside.
Staff are very nice and they speak really good English. There is a large selection of drinks: draft beers, bottled beers, cocktails, wine, soft drinks etc.
I personally find it a great idea that given they don't have a kitchen they sell their next door neighbour's food. It is not overpriced at all, it is one of the best pizza you can get in the city so it's well worth the price.

“Same menu as Pink Cadillac next door”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012 via mobile

We ate in The Pink Cadillac the first night and the Paris Texas the next and were presented with the exact same menu of average overpriced food, same owner I guess.

“Wonderful late bar, full of locals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2012

This place is cool and friendly, to the point that when we accidentally left an overall large tip, the waitress insisted we take it back! Good prices on drinks and a nice place to people watch.
