    There food is always tasty here. They use high quality cuts of meat which I appreciate. Their beef fajitas are some of my favorite in Houston. The appetizer platter is a good value. Sometimes we’ll just share that for dinner.

    Service was really inconsistent. Waitress was very sweet but forgot food and drinks that were ordered. And it took way too long to get items ordered specifically beverages. Too bad, quail was excellent but Mexican dishes were not so hot. Sorry. Used to be my favorite Mexican restaurant when I lived in Houston years ago.

    Great choice!! The food was delicious and it was a convenient walk from the Springhill Suites Hotel. The only con for my family was there is not a children's menu, we had to order a full meal and he was only able to eat a portion.

    it was a busy Friday night for the restaurant. We got seated quickly but had a wait until a server came by to take our order. Once that was settled great margaritas and delicious food was devoured..

    We were given strict instructions to be there within a 15-minute grace period and that all guests must be present to be seated. We did as they asked. They sat us and took 15 minutes to come take drink orders. We were almost 30 minutes in when they took food orders. We were being served at the time I expected our lunch to be concluded. Very disappointed. Most of the party commented that, had the tip not been included, they would have tipped much lower.
