Description: TEX MEX is Malta's ONLY authentic American Bar & Grill, having moved to our present Chic & Trendy venue on the Sliema Strand. TEX MEX offers an American style menu with some Mexican influence, with a choice of favourite TEX MEX dishes. Although always seasoned accordingly our menu is by no means hot & spicy in it's entirety except for items which are indicated so according to our chili pepper heat meter which allows you to heat up most dishes to your liking by means of specially imported chili peppers & ingredients. The revised menu includes all our classic favorites plus a wider selection of platters, appetizers, chicken, fish & pasta choices all prepared fresh to order whilst our fully stocked bar offers two for one on cocktails daily from 3:00 pm till 7:00 pm! Be it breakfast/brunch, lunch or late afternoon and evening meals the majority of our vast menu is offered all day long from noon with our favourite signature dishes being the Quality Fresh Prime Cut Steaks, Wagyu Burgers & Baby Back Ribs all island famous whilst offering excellent value for money. In fact TEX MEX is open all day hosting djs and live music on most nights. The ambience is the latest in design and decor, lively & pleasant also offering seafront patio dining. Surprise yourself as it is more then just a restaurant, not your cheap & cheerful local but an Uber Bar & Grill based on Quality offering cuisine on the upper echelons of casual dining utilising only the best & freshest of produce, a selection of brand, premium & top shelf spirits served from house level up also utilised in our exquisite cocktails, an array of over 100 wine varietals besides fusing into a lively club lounge ambient wise.

We visited this restaurant twice during our recent stay in Malta. On the first occasion there was a hen party who were quite noisy but the staff did their best to seat us as far away as they could and the food and service easily made up for the boisterous atmosphere! On the second visit the restaurant was quieter but still had a great, lively atmosphere. The food is huge and the two for one cocktails are difficult to resist!
Definately worth a visit, we will go again next time we're in Malta

We went to tex mex as after being in Malta for a couple months it always looked busy so we though we'd give it a try!
When we arrived we were told that it was happy hour on cocktails, an offer we couldn't refuse! We decided to have 2 each (would be rude not to really) and all 4 of them were brilliant and very strong!
After our first drink we thought that food would be a good idea so had to ask for a food menu as were not given one for over half an hour of being there. We ordered chicken wings to share and a pizza each which was far too much food for us but all of it was very tasty!
There was a really good atmosphere in the restaurant/bar with a dj later in the evening playing a very wide range of music.
Overall a great experience but the waiting staff could do with being a bit more on the ball as we always had to call them over and had to wait longer than you'd expect for them to bring our bill and then take the money after as well but the food and cocktails more than made up for this!

I have been here a few times and always enjoy it. The meat is always very tasty and cooked just the way I like it. The service is always very good, and the location is great for Sliema. l recommend this place to any one who enjoys a good meal out, and I am sure I will be returning soon.

We passed this restaurant whilst walking along the seafront and it appeared very busy. Because of this we decided to stop off and give it a try. We were not disappointed! The food was very good and I would advise you to try the ribs as they are superb!

My sister who has been living in Malta for a couple of months, suggested we go to this restaurant when we were visiting her in July, as she had heard some good reviews.

However, our experience was not so good. We waited half an hour to get a table for 5 people, after we ordered our food and drinks we waited an hour and about 15/20 minutes for our food, and nothing turned up.
So my dad went to ask one of the waitresses and then 10 minutes later the manger come out saying that the device what the orders go on was broken, so our order never went through. After waiting a bit longer, our food finally come, so at midnight we finally were eating something.
However, they got my dads order wrong and was given this disgusting burger, so for waiting so long, the manager gave us a free round of drinks, and to top it off the manager spilt 2 drinks on me and my dad.

So not a great night. However, my food was lovely and so was my sisters and her boyfriends.
