I have only been to the Red Onion once but I remember that the food and service were great. Unfortunately, one is not located near where I live.

Gets great reviews have been there three times thinking I order the wrong thing. I just don't get it. The food is at best (compared to what is available near by) average. The service is average and the cost above average

This is not a tex-mexican restaurant but is a fusion of latin american cusine and in my opinion is one of the best restaurant in houston. Food is dilicious and I like the mango appetizer and I love really love the chimichurri strip steak!

The exterior won't get your attention. But the food sure will. Don't expect a puddle of refried beans and generic cheese goop on enchiladas. No, sir. Cafe Red Onion obviously cares about taste. You should go.
