Restaurant details
Reviewed June 28, 2014

This is one of those businesses that has been around for a long time in League City but they still do a great business and the food is excellent. The restaurant is a little noisy but not nearly as bad as LaBrisa's on the Creek. I recommend this restaurant and am using them for a large catering job in the fall. If I didn't have faith in them, I wouldn't do that.

Esteban's has been in League City for years. Their food is tasty, and great Tex-Mex. Fajitas are good. Not really original recipes but still well done.

I have been going to Esteban's for about 25 years. They have gone through some off spells but have been right back on track this past year. Their red sauce is the best in Galveston county and is a special treat when it is served warm. We love the extra thin chips they serve. Fajitas, tacos and chicken enchiladas are very good. The borracho beans have a good meaty flavor. The service is usually fast and the restaurant is clean.

Houston's Bay Area is blessed with many excellent Mexican restaurants, but Esteban's is not one of them IMHO. It's not THAT bad I suppose, it's just not on par with most of the Mexican eateries in the Clear Lake area, which includes Galveston County and some of SE Harris Co.

It's been in business for most of the 40 years I have lived in League City, and they always seem to have good business (I think the bar draws well), but I don't know anyone who goes there anymore.

It's a pretty good place to eat Mexican food. Nothing really stands out. We usually only eat here if someone else wants to. The salsa is served hot.
