“Good Mexican Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2014

I visited on a Friday night for dinner. It took 3 times as long to find a parking place than to get seated at a table. Our waitress Antonia was fabulous.........very gracious and attentive. The food is typical tex-mex. Nothing special. The restaurant is quite loud. I would certainly go back the next time I'm in Grapevine, but wouldn't make a special trip.

We go when in town, but don't plan on having a conversation. Food is ok, not great. Margaritas by the pitcher.....no worries after

“Go to Mexican place when friends come to town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Great atmosphere, great food and drinks. You can't go wrong taking visiting friends here. Plus, one of our favorites for sitting outside and chilling out in the summer.

“Used to be a great place.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

We used to frequent Esparzas often, as it was always a great 'happy hour' meeting place with great food and dynamite Margueritas. However, we have been there twice in the last three months and the service was terrible and the food tasted like something from a Taco Tico. The second time was with a large party of 16 and everyone in the group agreed they had really gone downhill from the Esparzas of years ago.

“Fun & Festive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Great patio gathering in the summer....great margs, decent food and friendly staff!! Inside is nice, but gets very loud. New bar area is a great improvement and additional parking out back was long over due!!
