“Best Margarita's EVER”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012

Be sure to EAT before you drink, as they will knock you on your butt. Good food, and always festive. I like the location on Washington Ave. the best.

Valet guy was very nice, even though I did't use it. He waved and said hello as I walked to the door. Service was fast and food was hot and good.

The food is great, atmosphere is fun and great margs! What else is needed for great Tex Mex?

“Great Tex-Mex”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012

There's so much amazing Tex-Mex in Houston that it's hard to go wrong. El Tiempo is certainly in Houston's top tier. I'm a lifelong Texan and have had Tex-Mex all over the state. In my opinion, El Tiempo has some of the best chili, enchiladas and traditional Tex-Mex in the city. And the service is always excellent.
