Near Downtown on Westheimer, Valet parking only in their lot. Not your average Tex-Mex menu, but really unusual choices all with a Mexican origin. The Patio dining area is lovely and away from the street noise. The prices aren't cheap, but for a romantic dinner or an unusual dining experience it is a good choice.

I loved the menu offered here and everything was delicious! The stuffed poblanos were to die for! We received excellent service and were seated right away with our reservation. Our table of 10 was very pleased.

Hugo's has done an outstanding job in providing authentic Mexico food. The choices, flair, and flavors are exquisite. From the taquitos and empanadas as starters, lamb chops and chille rellinos as enters, to coffee olla and churrisos as desserts, Chef Hugo and his team did it right. The atmosphere is warm and lively, and the staff and service were friendly... More

This restaurant is overrated, food took a good 25-30 minutes to arrive, nothing really special, the only nice dish was the oxtail soup

The Hugo Rita is on the money. Not too sweet or tart, and strong enough. We had a number of appetizers -- many of them specials, including interesting pulpo and pork dishes, and more basic, but delicious chicken taquitos and a corn dish. Was with a client and it had the right amount of sophistication to cover up too much... More

I had heard a lot about the restaurant and Owner/chef Hugo Ortega and am honestly appeased with the experience. I hardly rate a restaurant a 5 but this one had a potential no less. An independent vegetarian menu and many delectable options to choose from was in itself a win.The crispy potato tacos were out of the world delicious,I could... More

High-end Mexican food with very interesting menu. Didn't try the grasshopper but it's on the menu. Some dishes are prepared at table side. Valet parking in rear and they will wash your car while you dine.
