    I'm pretty sure that this is the best Tex-Mex food in town. Their Margaritas aren't too shabby either.

    Decent Tex-Mex food with decent margaritas. Lots of competition from other places during the week, but Sunday brunch is fabuloso.

    Tacos de Carnitas super good! Horchata is yummy too. Pass on the chilaquiles though; not worth it.

    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

    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!

    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.

    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.
