“Good Fajitas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012 via mobile

Everything here is pretty much good. It gets crowded though so come early or else you will have a hard time talking with the person(s) you came with. It is a bit pricey.

“Great food, great margaritas, great ice cream for dessert.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

This is probably our favorite mexican food restaurant in the Cypress area. The service is very good. We've never had to wait very long here for a table, but thats probably because we try to beat the crowds by getting there around 5pm on weekends. I usually get the enchiladas and they are very good. The margaritas are delicious and very strong, so make sure you have a designated driver. Luckily for me, my husband let's me have the margarita and he gets water. The best thing of all - there's soft serve ice cream available for dessert that you serve yourself. This seems to be a growing theme among restaurants and I really like it. If you want a more romantic american dinner, try Alicia's sister restaurant next door - Darios. They are both owned by the same owner.

“Best Mexican Food in Cypress”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012 via mobile

Best Mexican Food in Cypress, by far. That is why with over 20 Mexican Resturants in the area, Alicia's always has a 10-15 wait. They know Mexican.

Disappointing after reading the rating. Didn't find any thing more than average maybe the bill was the highest point:(

“Good Place to Eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2012

We eat here often-especially for the lunch menu. Prices are on par with most other restaurants. Overall the food is really good. I personally love their taco salad (well seasoned beef), cheese enchiladas, and their rice. Service has always been great. The only negative thing I can think of is the noise level in the restaurant when its crowded. It's probably not the best place to go if you want to spend time talking and visiting. you may have to shout to be heard!
