    I’m from Orlando and was in town for work. This was probably the best meal I’ve had in months. Best chicken tortilla soup I’ve tasted.

    Quick stop in for happy hour with my mom and we loved it! The frozen Paloma’s were $5 because it was Friday and they were so good. The queso on the happy hour menu was our favorite pick of the night and the tacos were so filling and good.

    The drinks were so good, I think this is the best food spot I chose for vacation. My asada bowl was *chefs kiss*. If and when I come back to Houston definitely worth going back and the vibe wasn’t too crazy so it’s on my list to check out again.

    This is my new favorite Tex Mex place in Houston. The margaritas are excellent, and the carne asada fajitas are tasty and high quality - I highly recommend them.

    Great food, nice selection of appetizers, especially their warm queso with ground beef is amazing and their mango ceviche is very good. I'm GF, they have several GF options and the waiters are very knowledgeable when it comes to GF. They make sure to follow your request and recommend substitutions. Drinks are really good, especially their margaritas. I loved their Strawberry Shandi drink, was good and refreshing. Highly recommend the place for lunch, happy hour and dinner

    The food was wonderful. But it was quiet loud in the restaurant making it difficult to talk across the table with the people you are with. Otherwise it was a great experience.

    This place is amazing, except the slight wind / breeze of a former lover and her man that surrounds and suffocates the atmosphere. It’s time for a remodel & a men in black memory eraser next time I come in.

    I chose this restaurant because it was rated “exceptional” but it certainly did not live up to the rating. The environment and servers were nice and attentive, but the food was mediocre at best.

    Food was great. I had the sweet potato bowl, my husband had the shrimp tacos and we shared a pitcher of Dodge’s Cadillac and all of it was so good. The NBA finals were also playing so that’s a plus. This can be added to our list of good places to eat.

    There wasn't a choice for NOISE LEVEL: RIDICULOUS. But hey, we were definitely the oldest people in the place...so of course we thought the music was too loud. We didn't need to talk that much anyway. The staff could not have been nicer and the food was great. I have already recommended the place to my much younger friends and relatives.

    The service/food too long to arrive. The waitress forgot one item of our order, we ended up cancel it. Over all it was a good experience but if you add that parking is hard if you don’t get valet, it ended up being a regular experience.

    This place is really good for happy hour, but we went for dinner for the first time last night and it was just ok. It was really loud in the restaurant, including the music, so much so that we couldn't have a conversation without screaming at one another. The service was mediocre, but I noticed it wasn't many servers in there so we still gave our waiter a good tip due to him running around like a mad man all night. When I recommend this place it will only be for happy hour, as I probably will never go again for dinner.
