We went here for a dinner before an Astros game on the advice of a local.
We parked on the street north of the actual restaurant and spent about 15 minutes trying to figure out where the entrance was. It has a building marked with the name on Ruiz and Chenevert with the address on it, but the actual restaurant is further south on Chenevert, near Congress. To out-of-towners, this was confusing. We circled the old building for a good 10 minutes and almost went somewhere else; the smell of food kept us in pursuit.
The atmosphere and food is as advertised in previous reviews- mostly good but somewhat spendy. The staff were all friendly and lively and the restaurant offers free parking if you're going to the Astros game (we were accosted by the parking attendant upon walking through the entrance, asking if we paid for parking as though it were some great sin to have done so, which was all of $0.20).
A bit confusing- no menus delivered at seating and no prompts for anything initially. They'll try to give you a menu verbally but if you ask for a menu, you'll get a small 3x5 with prices.
The cost for an order of shrimp enchiladas, cheese enchiladas, a small side of guacamole (which we were asked three times to order the guac before we finally caved and did so), a small tres leches desert, one margarita, and two bottled Stellas came out to about $65. With appropriate tip, the meal ended up costing about $78. Now there's no doubt the food was tasty (although there were only three shrimps in the enchiladas, and they were placed on top of the tortillas, not inside), but I'm not sure we could afford to spend this much again for a pre-game meal.
The guac and tres leches were both very tasty and I would recommend if you're going there.
Overall, very tasty and a great atmosphere, but be prepared to spend as though you're in a five-star restaurant.
