“Great place to meet friends for dinner and drinks.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2012

I was visiting and taken here by locals. It's one of their favorite Mexican places and I see why! I had the Vegas Sampler which had large portions and was very tasty. Great value.

“Fun place to go - great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2011

This is a better than average Tex-Mex place with a good atmosphere. Kind of expensive but serve good drinks and is a party type atmosphere. Great for groups of people.

“My favorite Tex Mex restaurant in Houston”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2011

I'm a native Houstonian and I thought Pappasitos was the best Tex-Mex until I found 1308 (El Tiempo). The atmosphere is always cozy and fun and stays true to the Montrose scene. Everything I've eaten here was amazing. Even the rice you get as a side to fajitas or other dishes is a special treat in itself. I could eat the green sauce they serve with the chips all day. My favorite restaurant of all time. It's obviously not the healthiest food but its worth eating there on your 'cheat' day.

“Trendy and Retro to the MAX”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2009

From the time you walk in to the time that you leave. The whole experience makes you feel like you are worth a million bucks... Dine in or Dine out on the patio, whatever you choose you will be happy. You must have one of their Margaritas, one of the best. The food is so alot so take some friends with you.
