Bisteca Ranchera was grilled well prepared with tomatoes, onions and peppers was good for her. My combo plate with a stuffed bell pepper, tamale and enchilada was just “okay”. Margarita on the rocks was acceptable but not noteworthy.

We love to gather at Barcenas Mexican restaurant for an occasional family dinner. We've never been disappointed, until our last visit. Not sure if the server was just having a bad day.

Pretty much your standard Tex-Mex establishment. You will find all the standards. I stopped by with a few friends that had been here before. I had the Las Campanitas which is stuffed bell peppers with a rather bland ground beef and covered in some kind of Velveeta cheese stuff. The beans and rice were OK but nothing spectacular.

My wife and I tried Barcenas while flying through Hobby. The chili relleno, stuffed with fajita meat and cheese, was divine. So much so, we are picking one up for our return flight! ¥

The food tastes like Grandma cooked it. So fresh and tasty, especially the fajitas. The service is top notch, and the atmosphere is very cozy and Latino.Lots of great murals from the Mexican Revolution. They also added patio seating.

In kind of an out of the way strip center but wow, what a menu and great service they offer. Some of the best "old style" Mexican food in town plus $.99 Margaritas on Saturday afternoons.

The guy at the front desk of my hotel suggested this place and I'm glad he did. Very good authentic Mexican food with very friendly and efficient wait staff. Large menu and reasonable prices. Well worth the trip if you're around Hobby Airport.

Thank bfchef
