Don't know where to begin. Wow- what an awful dining experience. I should've known better. My buddy next to me also ordered the fagita plate so they placed them down at the same time. His plate was sizzling, mine was just there. We laughed about it at first, then I began eating the worst tasting Mexican food I can remember... More

We shared the guacamole olmeca appetizer with my son and his girlfriend. It was a nice way to start the meal. All of us enjoyed our entrees out on the large porch area. It was a warm day, and we could have eaten indoors, but the porch area was too nice to pass up. Highly recommend this restaurant as someone... More

Use 5800 Broadway as the address! The food is great. The Resturant is in a great location with great wait staff. The owner is clearly very involved and focused!

Truly delicious Mexican food in an inviting atmosphere. Dishes taste better here than anywhere else I've been. My one criticism is that the low lighting can make it a little difficult to read the menu. They do have some nice outdoor seating when the Texas heat subsides.

Wife and I had a quick lunch here and everything was simple and delicious. I had cheese enchiladas and she had poblano cream soup and an Esmeralda salad. All three items were all you can ever want for taste and freshness. Have a friend coming to town who moved from Austin to New Orleans 4 years ago and is craving... More

The appetizer guacamole is a must. Made fresh, at your table, with the ingredients you choose. The house Dimas enchiladas were delicious. Off the beaten path with a very nice outdoor seating area. Lots of fans, so even in the heat of summer, it was pleasant to sit outside.

Thank Nancy H
