“A Downtown Must”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

Irma's was probable the easiest, and once of the most delicious lunches that I have ever had. The menu, they don't have one, so just ask or rattle off something you want. The bill, never got one.....so hand over the card an pay it......WORTH EVERY PENNY.

Really friendly staff, excellent food and, as other reviewers have noted, amazing fruit-ade. A fun place for lunch in downtown Houston

“No Menu = No Thanks! Okay, overpriced food.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

First time at Irma's today. Surprised to see they don't have menus. I accepted the server's suggestion of a "combo" so I could try a few different things. The tamale and enchilada were just okay, but the beef fajita was chewy and yuck. expected better beef in Texas! i also ried their house-made lemonade, which I found sickly sweet. Guacamole was thick and yummy. One combo, one guac, one lemonade equaled $40 for lunch!! Since there were no menus, this high price came as a very unpleasant surprise. Nice servers, but never again!

“Fresh Mexican- I have never had better.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012 via mobile

The owner took time to meet and us and asked about where were from. The waiter was attentive and brought out our food quickly. The owner gave my husband a mole enchilada and it was delicious. The fruit-Aide is wonderful.

“Daytime place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

This location is only open morning until 3pm and caters to the downtown business people. The service was fast and friendly and the food was fresh.
