Four different salsa and a huge menu highlight this spot. Small margaritas $1.50 off still a ripoff at $6.29. Fajitas ok, salad ok, combo plate not a good choice. Prices too high for what you get. Won't be going back.

Ordered pork fajitas. All the fajitas condiments were very tasty and on the point. The meat tasted OK but no seasoning.

I visited El Tiempo in Cypress, Texas for the first time last night. The wine list is s bit pricey but I can live with that. However, the wine should be served properly when talking mid two figures. The Malbec was almost on the very...More

Tons of Mexican options in Houston but El Tiempo is consistently the best. The filet fajitas are pricey but get them with a group and split them. They are worth it. The tortillas are too
