“Ok. Not great. ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

Margaritas were sweet, candy- like. Chicken in taco salad was grilled well but they topped the taco salad with an excessive amount of American cheese. I personally do not think American cheeses does not belong in a Mexican restaurant except for maybe mixed in the queso. Also the menu claimed that the salad would have bell peppers and onions- there were none. It did not mention American cheese. There are better choices in Tomball.

“Reopened as "Cielito Lindo"”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

This restaurant had a fire a couple years ago and was fixed, reopened as "Cielito Lindo" (pretty sky, I think). Seating area is authentic Mexican style. Food is very good (tried the Chimichanga) and was served FAST. When we first walked in we were hit with a blast of fumes from the smoking section; almost walked out.

“Tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I just happened upon this place and I'm glad we did. The service was super and the food was good Tex-Mex. I had a burrito and my wife had the cheese enchilada plate. I recommend it.

Food was great and so was the service! The waiter was very nice as it was my birthday dinner! They even brought out a sumbrero for me to wear and get my picture taken!
