We were looking for something local and found Esparza"s, and glad we did. Yani gave us great service and the food was delicious. ThePollo Ala Esparza was just what I had hoped for.

It is sometimes hard for us to pick which Grapevine restaurant to go becuase a number of our favorites are in a close area to each other, but if you are craving Tex-Mex and margaritas, it is hard to go wrong with Esparzas. Esparzas has...been an area staple for many years. We love their margaritas and I am a big fan of their enchiladas. It can be a little wait if you go at a busy time.More

Always good food and good margaritas. Very consistent and you just feel welcome. Patio is good for casual eating as well as inside

We have been going to Esparza's for years. The food is good. It's not something to scream about but good. Hot sauce is good but we are disappointed that their chips are bought in bulk and not homemade. Their margarita's are good but be careful...if you get a large, it's $17.00. I notice on their website that they have printed "Prices are subject to change". We now only go when our friends want to go. If you are from out of town, you will enjoy it at night on the patio.More

This is the worst Mexican or Tex-Mex place I've ever been in Texas! The menu is limited to things you find at every lame place like Chilli's, and it is poorly prepared. The guac was awful, the fajitas were awful, the chips were awful.... Where...do these people come from? There was not a single vegan option (they claim to be vegan friendly, and one of our party didn't eat meat). and the food was cold. They didn't even have any pinto or black beans... what the heck?????More

My husband and daughters and I love to meet here for lunch. The food is delicious, and the service is always good. The fajitas are really exceptional.

That's a good question. I've not had wine there, but even though they are your standard Mexican Food place, they have a big wrap around fully stocked bar so I imagine they do. If you want some good wines, hit the winery's... More
