This place does not look like the places that meet expectations and this time it did, the food was from average to very good, the prices are not bad , the establishment was clean in and outside, parking could be a mess but overall experience was good, seating outside available but too hot during summer days unless late evening .

The words "taco stand" are an understatement. Yucatan is a good-sized, casual spot with indoor/outside seating near The Waterway. They offer an extensive food and drink menu.

For us, the "Must Try" dish is the garlic pulled-beef sandwich on grilled Torta bread. The garlic beef is rubbed with Mexican spices and slow cooked until it falls apart. (Also pork) Spread with garlic Aioli mayo, cilantro, red onion, fresh Mexican cheese, shredded lettuce and tomato, we finished every bite! The Torta bread is slightly sweet and grilled inside. Great with a Mexican beer or margarita.

There's a lively buzz and good people and sports-car watching if you sit outside at one of the red umbrella tables. We have seen big family get togethers, birthday celebrations, and couples. If you are on a date, sitting outside is more fun.

Whether you have kids or it's date night, stroll around the spectacular fountains and Waterway.

For a resturant with such a great location and atmosphere, the food and service is lacking. I went at 11:30, ordered chips and queso and a shrimp taco. The shrimp taco came out a good 10 minutes before the chips and queso. The queso was cold and not that good, the salsa is not good, and the shrimp taco is average, but considering the price you would expect better.

Wow! The Pulled Pork nachos are huge, loaded and delicious! The atmosphere is fun, family friendly and rarely a wait for a table. They also stay open late for after dancing/drinking snack time!! The patio over looks the Woodlands Waterway and has live music on the weekends. So fun! We eat there at least 1x month and have never been disappointed.

Great place for a date night or out with friends. We love their pork and garlic shredded beef tacos. The nachos are insane - big and delicious!! When the weather is nice, the patio is a great place to sit, drink and people watch.
