Best fajitas I've had in a long time. The presentation was fun. But the star of the show was the tortilla, I couldn't get enough. The margaritas and service are also reasons to visit.

This is by far our favorite Mexican Restaurant in the city...the fajitas are amazing and the price point is fantastic for what you get. The staff is awesome, friendly and very well trained. Great place all the way around...

We arrived somewhat early for dinner, about 4:30pm, and we were glad we did because the restaurant filled during the next hour. There was a crowd waiting for tables when we left at 6pm. Our party included people from California and others from Virginia. We chose this restaurant because it had good reviews and was close to the Beer Can House. The margaritas were great, and the food was, too. There were lots of choices, from a la carte small plates to full dinners. The menu offered all the usual Mexican fare, and some we had never seen before. The staff was friendly and efficient, and especially kind toward the 10 year old who was with us. Even though we were completely full after our meals, we ordered a tres leches cake to share. It was delicious. The cool, dark interior of the restaurant, with interesting photos on the walls, made for a great respite from the heat and humidity outside.

I travel to houston a lot and this is often on my list. Your food usually comes In a small brick oven setup and I've never had a bad meal. Margaritas are excellent, but don't expect to drive home after, they are potent. Definitely at the top of my list.

Known for their fajitas - they have all kinds, but the standard chicken and beef are some of the best I've ever had - anywhere, anytime. The portions are huge. The green rice is a little unusual, but certainly a unique taste.

Their margaritas are something special. If you're the type that can drink several margaritas at the typical mexican restaurant - you'll want to stop at 2 here. The flavor is great but they are very strong.
