    This wonderfully festive, colorful and inexpensive neighborhood place has a spacious covered patio, efficient waitstaff and large portions of some of the best Tex-Mex in Houston. Read more

    The seafood enchilada is to die for. At $4 on the a la carte menu, you can't beat the amazing cream sauce that covers the shrimp and scallop stuffed enchilada. Two are more than enough to satisfy.

    Great food for the price and the servers are very attentive. The fajitas are very tender and flavorful..they hook it up on the fajita tacos. The breakfast is off the chain..take the whole family in

    Got the el bonny and the la Paola combos. Between them I liked the carnitas and the shredded chicken enchiladas best. The beef and chicken fajitas are also good.

    Everything is great. They have the best fajitas. The fried avocados are delicious. I also recommend the horchata!

    Has to be the absolute best Mexican place in Houston. Amazing margaritas and grilled meats. Get their early though as it fills up fast after 5.30pm.

    EXCELLENT Mexican food! Tacos are great and a good size for the price. Easily one of the best Mexican restaurants north of the border. \m/

    Finish on a high note with sopapillas, airy triangle puff pastries that you sweeten according to taste by pouring on honey. Go thick or light—either way, they're delightful with coffee.

    Always great food. Been there many times. Tonight we sat in the patio area, fans were blowing - hard and fast. On a hot night it would be welcomed. Tonight's weather was fine. No need for that much ai

    The ribs are superb. Get extra sauce on the side. Some of the best ribs in Houston. Almost excuses the horrible service.

    The go-to spot for reasonably priced, always delicious Tex-Mex classics. Both the flour and corn tortillas are always fresh, and the salsa verde is the perfect companion to the chips.
