The food here is good but it's a very popular restaurant and usually crowded with a wait time. Love their tortilla soup! Very good!! Atmosphere is loud and noisy so if you are wanting romance, pass this one by. If you want lots of good food, this is your place!

My wife and I were in the area for lunchtime, we checked Trip Advisor and this place was rated #1. Margarita and Bahama Mama were good. Wife got fish tacos and I got shrimp Marusco with tortillas. Nice atmosphere with indoor and outdoor dining. Restaurant is smoke-free. Food was good and fresh.

Wide variety of food, nice casual atmosphere. Always busy. My favorite place for beef fajitas, and a delicious stuffed, deep fried avocado!! Not a place for a quiet meal, though. Efficient staff, and very community oriented because they helped enormously when two local police officers were hurt and killed. They donated thousands of dollars!

We found this restaurant by chance today. It was recommended to us by an antique dealer, so we thought to try it. We were so pleasantly surprised by the porton sizes, prices and decor. The food was great and the service exceptional. They served a great green salsa as well as the usual red tomato based salsa. Neither were too hot so all will enjoy the taste. We had Carne Guisada, Jimmy's Delux, and Saltilla plates, all filled with Tex~Mex delights. Homemade flour tortillas were wonderful. The chain has 3 sites in the Houston area.

We go to Jimmy Changas a lot The food is great. However, there is one thing. If you go in the evening shift change be prepared to wait. They will have group meetings with the wait staff, with all the clapping and cheering among themselves. But be prepared to WAIT while they meet. With high ceiling and big room, it's very noisy.
