Took our three grandchildren for a dinner in downtown Houston as we were going to the Toyota Center for a game. This is the restaurant, but since the downtown location was not listed, we choose this one as it is part of the same group. When we were seated, out came the salsa and chips. Salsa was spicier thanI am accustom to, but I am not usually exposed to good Tex-Mex food. Service for the entire meal for excellent and I complimented the server on a job well done when we were leaving. Two of us had the Taco Trio which included a beef, chicken and shrimp taco with bean soap and Mexican rice. One had the Mini Taco and the pre-teen had chicken nuggets. All meals were given high marks and everyone was pleased with their choices. Since it is only a few blocks from the Toyota Center, a great place to go before the event.

We really enoyed our meal there. I had the stuffed quail which were amazingly good and quite unexpected for a Mexian restaurant. The others at our table enjoyed theirs too.

Not sure if this is the right location listed as there are several in the greater Houston area. We dined and had lunch at the downtown Houston restaurant. I had heard mixed reviews but found that the food service and servers were all super. I love good mexican food and jusually know if the Salsa and chips are great then the rest is going to be fine. I had the seafood tostada and my wife had the grilled jumbo shrimp salad. Both were presented timely and full of flavor. The next night we had dinner and caught at great Happy Hour special with half off drinks!
the food was again excellent. I am looking forward to going back next year.

Close to our hotel and the convention center. Great mango marguerita. Excellent service for six of us. Salmon was one of the best meals in a long time. Large and noisy but they handled the crowd well.

This is a great restaurant very close to the Convention Centre and the Marriott Hotel. We had probably our bext Mexican meal ever there! It fills up fast, but just give the hostess your name and you usually only have to wait a short time to get in.
