    Love the Juevos Rancheros con carne (beef fajita). Come hungry because its a lot of food and so delicious with homemade flour tortillas.

    This place is awesome! I come here all the time for the best Menudo an Micheladas in town. They also have great Carne Guisada. La Mexicana is centrally located and offers excellent service.

    My favorite breakfast tacos in Houston! The chicken tortilla soup is also pretty solid.

    Decent Tex-Mex may be as plentiful as traffic jams here in Houston, but when it comes to authentic Mexican tamales, one need look no further than 25-year-old La Mexicana in Montrose. Read more

    Really good Mexican breakfast!

    Karen Fryar · July 6, 2014

    There aren't any drink specials! Do yourself a favor and find a place on the south side of Houston for better food and bigger margaritas!

    Rebecca Barbosa · June 3, 2014

    Love the outside atmosphere. Good food! Service is mediocre, though.

    Their margaritas are absolutely not worth the price

    Happy hour top shelf margaritas for $3.50 👍

    Ordered four tacos and two drinks. Half of the tacos and all the drinks were wrong. The bill was a mess and has what we ordered not what we ate. Last time here.

    Food was pretty good. Especially the barbacoa. Pretty expensive for tacos though. About $3.50.

    Unni Philip · July 27, 2013

    Best tex-mex in Montrose. Margarita specials before 4pm.

    Jennifer DeLeon · July 26, 2013
  • Kristina H.

    Food is great! But... Save your money and order a beer instead of the drinks... They have one ingredient: alcohol. The descriptions all sound so good, but they are not at all what they claim to be.

    Muy rico todo puedo nos gustó mucho la parrilla de fajita by pound dice que para 2 pero comimos 2 adultos y 2 niños y sobro.

  • Prinz Snarkles v.

    Disgraceful. Prices are ridiculous considering you can throw a rock in any direction and find a mexican restaurant in Houston. Guacamole from a can, queso is like water, and enchilada plates at $15.

  • Shelby K.
