El Real Tex-Mex is your grandfather’s vintage Tex-Mex with a kick. Always fresh and delicious, come grab a bite at the famous El Real!
The Bacon Enchiladas are the best Enchiladas I have ever had and I have eaten a few enchiladas.
Enchiladas Carne Doble! Great stuff!
The Big Chile (wih chicken) is easily one of the best things o the menu
Montrose Mondays means all food is half priced if you have a Montrose zip.
better than u would think..., I like them good ass special looking tacos they got...
Go here for a gut bomb of legit, heavy Tex-Mex. Always add a fried egg!
El real margaritas and enchiladas #7
Montrose Mondays! Half off food on Mondays if you're a Montrose resident (77006 or 77098 license)
We got great service even though we came just before closing and stayed well after. Very grateful for that, and for the excellent frozen margarita!
Good food and friendly staff. I also found some good vegetarian options.
Order the sampler
El Real's chunky, beefy chili con carne is pleasantly darker and richer than the kind served at most Tex-Mex haunts.
Montrose Mondays are legit
Nice retro Tex-Mex. I'm a fan of spicier salsa, but other than that the tex-mex standards are outstanding. The fajitas are great, and so are the enchiladas. I like that they have pork as a filling.
Salsa was fresh and roasted, yet, not enchanting. Service was 110 on point. Maybe over vigilant. Fajitas were tasty and soft. Pico de gallo was my favorite thing here.
The food is to die for, delicious.
Montrose Mondays means half-off entrees for Montrose and River Oaks residents.
Sit on the patio and have a house margarita.
Best house margarita for the money in Houston!
Best tex mex in Houston. Great quesadillas, fajitas, micheladas and margaritas. Half off for Montrose residents on Mondays.
The best enchiladas in Houston hands down. Great chips and warm salsa. Great margaritas.
Fajitas, puffy tacos, margaritas
Best margaritas and the San Antonio puffy tacos are the best.
The salsa is different every time we are here - but great every time!!
And if you want food visit El Real Tex-Mex, where famed food writer Robb Walsh and celebrity chef Brian Caswell have teamed up to bring you the most authentic Tex-Mex experience you can have.
This is one of my new favorites! The cheese enchiladas are to die for
Looks better on TV's Unique Eats - "Chingo Bling" - A smoked chicken stuffed Poblano pepper dish with an enchilada and a tamale. See video here at: http://www.ulive.com/video/houstons-finest-tex-mex
Get the queso in the large size. It's delicious.
Love!! Food is great. Service is great. Atmosphere is great. Margaritas are great. All that and 1/2 off for Montrosians on Mondays.
Try the San Antonio Puffy Tacos.
Peach margaritas were good but they make their enchiladas with flour tortills. BIG no no in my book!
Try the Fajita Taco Salad! El Real gets extra points for using fajita beef and offering fragrant dressings such as jalapeño lime and cilantro ranch.
Don't come any time after 8. The waiters start to not pay attention because they are focused in doing their side work and not you, the guest. The manager was nice and helpful. But don't come after 8.
The toilets are not meant for people under 5'5".
The fajitas are so delicious here, my absolute favorite here!
$2 house margaritas on Tuesdays. Very potent.
Brunch is always good. Sit outside :)
Meh. It was ok...
Why do people have to wait to be seated when there are empty tables?
Sevice was good. Foods fair
Bacon enchiladas with an egg on top for Brunch. Fantastic! Also, $1.50 mimosa brunch special. Win.
Delicioso smoked chicken chile relleno!
Great place. Try the green chile pozole, micheladas and the no minor milk shake. We are coming back soon
