    Tex Tubb's was great, went with a small (non-rowdy) bachelorette party, the queso was fantastic, the margarita flights are so fun and the food was oh-my-god good with large portions. Have visited since and will continue to do so!

    You have an issue with the front of the house not being able to manage or respect reservations for the high-top tables. We had reservations for two for 6pm. We were told a couple who was seated at the table we were to get had been there a while but had gotten their bill. We waited for 35min, standing inside the restaurant, no offer to get us a drink from the bar, no updates. At no time did any staff go up to the couple to let them know the area of tables are reserved and they need to clear tables for the next guests. We were eventually seated 45 min after our 6pm reservation -- at a different table because the same couple was still at the table we had been waiting for, had paid their bill and were not buying anything else but still sat for another 30-40 min AFTER we were seated.

    When we got there table was set for 6, the reservation was for 4. Felt rushed the entire meal, server wasn’t welcoming. Starting closing sidework while we were there. Have been plenty of times and this visit was disappointing.

    It was different. We ate outside due to the virus. I expected twinkle lights or candles but there were none. And then I tripped over the barrier put up to contain the dining area. Went down on my knee and now my favourite denim crops. It was so dark!!

    The food and service were was fine. We were sad to see the menu had been downsized quite a bit. There are limited choices and faitas are no longer on the menu which is an item my family has loved in the past. Due to the limited menu we will most likely go elsewhere for Mexican where there is a full choice menu.

    I come to Tex Tubb's often for dinners and this time the service seemed sub par compared to other times eating here. Every time we interacted with someone, it was always a different person in the waitstaff. Took about 15-20 minutes just for someone to take our order. Overall, it was a good time like always. I assume that they were just really busy.

    I order the smoked pork taco salad every time I come and this time it was all fat almost every piece of meat and it tasted as though it’s shelf life was overdue. The last who sat us was very friendly she said she would grab water and they were doing a shift change so we waited quite a while (understandable I work in industry), and then we received the new waiter for the night who seemed as though he either didn’t enjoy his job, didn’t want to be there, or our needs were annoying or too much for him. We love the food here so we will try again I know times are hard but eating out is what has been getting my family out of the house And sane and we would only hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
