Enjoyed every bite. Our table shared the rack of tacos, beef enchiladas, beef chimichunga, queso and of course margaritas. Service was excellent with a charming atmosphere. I'd been in Greece for 3 weeks, loving their traditional food, but the first food I wanted upon my return was Mexican. ..from Escalantes.

My buddy and I were having a great time at the bar trying every combination of Margarita they could mix. We moved to the dining room where the night lit up. Service was excellent. Our waiter kept the drinks coming and the appetizers moving. During which time we made friends with the Mariachis. Our main request was to NOT play... More

Met former colleagues of my husband's, along with one of their wives & small son, for lunch while staying with friends in the area. Interesting to get a take on this slightly upmarket 'chain' Tex-Mex restaurant in a smart development as compared to the local, family-owned Mexican restaurant we had lunch at yesterday! I had the same thing - cheese... More

We had a very nice meal here. Good salsa and big portions. Would recommend if you're in Sugar Land and feeling Mexican.

Escalente's stays pretty busy at the Sugar Land location. They have really awesome Tex Mex food and two of my favorite things are their queso, and that they make the guacamole fresh at your table based on what you want mixed into it. It has a pretty standard atmosphere, not overly fancy, but still a very nice atmosphere inside. I've... More

I love the fish tacos and the tableside guacamole is quite the production. I took friends from out of town and they loved it. It's popular on weekends so go early or make a reservation

I haven't been to the restaurant, but I've eaten their fajitas at a catered lunch 2 times. Luckily there was too much food, and I was able to take some home to my teen boys. We eat fajitas every week, and feel like we've found our favorite. Then came Escalante's. Wow! We were blown away! The absolute best I've eaten.

Great location. Very consistent food quality and service at Escalante's. There are multiple locations in the greater Houston area. Worth the visit.
