    If you want over-glorified TexMex, this is the place to be! Nothing authentic about it! Just overpriced generic food.

    Only Quacamole is good there! I didnt like no burito, no escalante salad, no fachitos. Maybe this is not my taste. I feel a lot cumin in all of them, even in salad. But quacamole is really the best)

    Went to the bathroom and one of the employes walked out of there without washing their hands. Wife got a piece of plastic in her food and a manager never came over to the table.

    The menu has large portions of standard Tex-Mex faves—fajitas, nachos, burritos, enchiladas—and awesome chips and dips, including fresh salsas, chimichurri, and a kick-butt guacamole made tableside.

    This is an upscale "tex-mex" - the table side guacamole is a must. Spinach enchiladas & empanadas are amazing and probably my favorite salsa in H-town just the right amount of kick w/ great flavor.
