I had read some reviews about the chef and restaurant and really looked forward to it; however, it was just average. Our waiter was good and food was good just nothing to really scream about. Both of the tables next to me sent their food back.

Chose Picos to celebrate my niece's birthday, and we weren't disappointed. The fresh guacamole and queso were great starters for the meal, and for main courses we tried the poblano peppers stuffed with pork raisins, olives, etc, the duck with two types of mole, the parrilla mixta, and cheese Tejas enchiladas for the less adventurous of us in the group....

Excellent service. Prompt & courteous. Wonderful margaritas! 7 regions of Mexico on the menu. Red Snapper dishes worth the order.

I had high hopes for this restaurant once I walked in and looked around. This is a very nice place for a date or maybe an anniversary dinner. However, the food is very average and so are the margaritas. The prices they charge do not equate to the taste of the food! Beware!! Also, they were very adamant about how... More

I rate it an average and called the food modest only because being a vegetarian I had too brief a selection to choose from.The food was good but customary, the margaritas were, however, splendid.Great ambiance, beautiful interiors, good location, decent food, a little pricey for all that, though.

We enjoyed breakfast here very much. The place had great service, ambience, and above all great food. I enjoyed my migas with chorizo and a side of potatoes very much. Fresh orange juice and good coffee to top off a nice meal with fresh tortillas. Really good bacon as well. We will be back.

The Margaritas and Guacamole are amazing. The Bartender knows his Amaretto too! I got the best Amaretto Sour I think I have ever had from him. I was able to meet my best high school friends for drinks there. I would recommend it to anyone. They even provide Valet parking

We came on a Saturday night with friends. Large enough that there was no wait. Food was tasty, and not the usual tex-mex.

This place is a winner - great food from 7 regions of Mexico, wonderful, friendly staff, and comfortable atmosphere. We had the good fortune to go there on the Day of the Dead (Dios de Muertes), which made it even more fun. The wait staff's faces were painted in decorative skeletal splendor, and the Mexican music was by a guitar... More

Pico's is fun and has great food and good prices. It is a "Happy Place". A lot of my friends go there every Sunday early evening. It is known for many delicious margaritas with all different types of tequila to choose.
