We went here for lunch. Rosa was our server and was extremely attentive and engaged our entire party. The portions are large! The burgers and chicken sandwiches delicious. Definitely worth the stop

The ambience here is weird in a good way, and they offer a huge, eclectic selection of dishes on the menu. Prices here are definitely higher, but they have an english menu and staff that speak basic english, so it's an easy introduction to local food. They also have an ayahuasca menu available as well. I ordered the mixed ceviche... More

Don't believe the hype. This place is completely overrated. I wouldn't go here again if you paid me too.

Lovely place and obviously an institution in Iquitos. Huge selection of food from Peruvian to American to Italian. Good portion size and the beers come with coolers! Off the boulevard so much less people trying to sell you things.

Before we spend some days in the jungle, we had a plesure to try Ayahuasca menu in Texas restaurant. I have to say that portion sizes were really good, staff nice and helpful but the owner bit weird. He came to us with strange comments.. I would eat more there because of awkward atmosphere that was present there.

We were here at breakfast time and enjoyed a fun visit with the owner, Gerald. He has an amazing, eclectic collection of artwork, sports memorabilia and Peruvian collectibles. He's a fun guy to talk with and the food is quite good, as well. Definitely worth a visit.

They serve some really delicious juices (aguaje) and the best ceviche I've ever tasted. Patarashca is other exceptionally delicious dish. If you visit Iquitos The Yellow Rose of texas is a great choice.

This is a cute little place with a catchy name and a nice outdoor area, but I prefer places a little less touristy. We stopped in the afternoon and had a few beer and shared an order of fried yucca, the yucca was not the best we had on this trip and in general the prices were more than we... More

The diversity in the menu and the quality of the food was top notch. Great service too. Hate to admit that we went twice!
