“Everything very good”

Had dinner there Sunday night and was very
Impressed. Nice menu with good choices. Had shrimp and jalepenos wrapped in bacon. Did not particularly care for the dips.

“Great service good food in neighborhood Atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012 via mobile

The food is consistently good
Margaritas better than good for the Cadillac but pricey. However 1 is plenty they are large (in season the watermelon margaritas are to die for).
Until last night the sopa pias were a special treat and our favorite from anywhere but they changed them and now just sugar cinnamon chips yuck.
Service is great especially Victoria she is attentive and does an outstanding job.

“Another packed chain”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012

First, the wait was over 30 minutes for two people. The food was pretty expensive and average at best. Queso was alright and I'm a Texas girl who likes her chips and queso. I believe you can tell a Mexican restaurant just by their chips, queso, tortillas, and margaritas. Service was good but I felt like they were trying to make up for everything else. I do understand we went a few months after opening so they were probably working some kinks out. But in Cypress, there are much better Mexican restaurants that are less pricey and have almost no wait!

“Good Food, REALLY LONG WAIT”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

This place is very very popular in Cypress, so in turn you have to wait usually 45 min - an hour for a table on any given day.

Food is good, although my family and I perfer Alicias better.

But we LOVE the atmosphere of this resturant better.

“THE Best Tex-Mex in all Houston area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012

Yes, I'm a gringo and I love this "fabulous" tex-mex restaurant. From the time you enter, you are warmly welcomed. The finest of service. The food is sensational. You must savor the wonderful tortilla soup-- the best kept secret! All the menu items are priced right - great value!!!
And be sure to save room for the free soft serve ice cream cone when you leave.
