This is one of the places I eat at once or more a week.. The Mexican Food is great. I like the Breakfast that can be ordered till 2pm on Saturday and Sunday. Has 2 patios and the crowds are fun and lively..They have several locations but this is my choice now...
Try their Ribs and Sausage ... Very good.

El tiempo has my favorite Mexican food in Houston. Have tried two of their locations and both are excellent

On a recent work trip to Houston, the customer highly recommended 1308 Cantina. I had seen it the night before and kept on going. I went there for lunch and was kicking myself for having passed up the opportunity to eat there the previous evening! I had the Shrimp Enchilado Lunch Plate with the Marisco Cream Salsa. Our (wonderful) server recommended it...honestly, I think my eyes were glazed over from the pure enjoyment!!! LOL...that sounds silly but it's how much I enjoyed my meal there. I'll be back in Houston later this month and that'll be the first place I head when it's time to eat! Can't wait!

Have been a fan of 1308 for years but the last few times there have been a disappointment. The food was unremarkable at best and service chaotic. The wine I ordered had "gone around the bend" some time ago, but they refused to take it off the bill.

Definitely this place is a scene. Perhaps it would be best just to stick with chips, beer and margaritas and go elsewhere for good Tex-Mex.

Order the parilla for the table. HUGE amount of food - scale back the number you order for. Few remaining to serve margaritas by the pitcher. Spicy Tamales - LOTS of stuffing.
Use Valet on Weekends parking is tight. Prices are great. $$
