    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.

    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

    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.
