Visited here with a group of business colleagues. This Tex-Mex themed restaurant offered a little of something for everyone. And it did not disappoint! The chips and salsa bowl was never empty. The help was young but friendly. We were able to eat outside and...More

My meal was average to good, the best part of the carnitas was the pork itself, everything else was ok. However the chips and salsa and the margaritas alone give this place 4/5.

Had lunch here today -- it was awesome. First we had their hand-made salsa (made from fresh roasted vegetables and lots of cumin!) and chips (the chip basket was a cornucopia of delicious chips -- red, yellow and blue tortilla chips with a delicious rub,...More

I've eaten at Canyon Cafe the last three times I've been in Houston on business. I stumbled on it because it was within walking distance of my hotel. Even though there are many restaurant choices in the area, the carnitas platter and conmemorativo margarita keep...More
