Went here last night on the 19th and the food was absolutely terrible. There's absolutely nothing positive I can offer about this place. It was possibly the worst Mexican food I've ever had. Not worth the four star rating it's got.

I was there with 2 co-workers on a Wednesday evening. There were people dancing, great ambiance, very friendly staff. I had a frozen margarita and chicken fajita's, they were great. So the next time I am in Houston I will eat here again!

The Nachos with cheese are awesome. They taste so good. You are able to Order without certain ingredients (eg. Jalapenjos) Guacomole is nice as well. Big portions. Enough for two girls :) Fair prices.

The food here is unbelievably delicious and a lot of food, I always take some home. On any given day you can walk in and the dance floor is like sala class. The atmosphere is like a Mexican hut comfortable with outdoor seating as well....More
