Great food, everybody seemed satisfied of what they ordered. The portions are big. Love the rice and vegetarian beans. I had the tacos with chicken and it was really nice. The fajitas, fish tacos, spinach enchiladas and stuffed avocado are all good dishes. Loved the Watermelon margarita!

I ordered the soup and salad and right off the bat pulled a looooong hair out of my mouth which was not mine. Our server was creepy. Disgusting....nothing else needs to be said!

Visiting cousins in Pasadena - awesome restaurant. Served both "green" and regular salsa w/ chips ... both yummy. Had fajita nachos and those were great, too. If we ever return to that area, we will definitely go back. Facility is also new and pretty.

We have been to Jimmy Changas in Pasadena, TX many times and have never been disappointed with the great food or the service. I love the ambiance of the fireplace inside and also the water feature outside. Especially on the weekends you will need to get there early if you don't want to wait on a table. However, it is...

Been here numerous times and always pleased with service and food. Food good and plentiful, good idea to split entrée. Great job with the interior decorating as well as the patio. They make a mean Margarita. Enjoy!

Our whole family can agree on going to Jimmy Changa's just about any time we want to go out for great Mexican food. Our favorite thing though must be the shrimp or chicken diablos! Well, then again, my favorite is the Chile Relleno! You just can't go wrong. Grab you a fresh queso, a cold margarita or iced tea, and... More

We went there for a birthday party and we were a large party of twenty eight. I'll start by saying we had about a 3 minute wait! The Manager came out to greet us and apologized for any inconvenience we had while they got us seated! We had plenty of different plates of food and No one complained! The food... More

We decided to try it out. It was in a Friday evening and it was packed with a 20-30 minute wait. We waited and sure enough, it was 23 minutes and we were seated. Our server was great and assured us that he would take good care of us, and He Did!! We got our food in a timely fashion... More
