Angela, our server was very attentive and good at checking on us to see if we needed anything. We have been eating here for about 35 years, and have never been disappointed. At times it can get very loud in the back room, depending on the group of people sitting there.

My wife and I visited here on 11/2/16. We used to live in League City and have eaten here for years but our travels have kept us away for the last 6 months. New decor (to us) and like others smiling staff and quick service. Will return.

I have ate at Estebans before and food was great. But that was a year ago. This time, it was quite busy but the food quality was was not as good. So much so, that I will not choose queadillas and fajitas there ever again. In fact I won't go again.

We have been to this little restaurant many many times. It is a friendly place, especially in the 6 or 7 seat bar. Margaritas are good along with the fajita meat nachos.We did not care for the shrimp fajitas or the ones with all the peppers on the plate. Most other items are okay, but, not fantastic. It is good... More

Esteban's is local favorite in League City. Locally owned, it has been here for many years and continues to purvey excellent Mexican food from very friendly wait staff. You can tell when the wait staff are the same smiling faces year after year that it is a friendly place. The food is great and deserving of many repeat visits.

I've been going to Esteban's for many years. Consistency is important to me and I've found Esteban's food to be refreshingly good each visit. The service is usually fast & overall I find this a good place to eat Mexican food. I especially love the chips & salsa.

Food was great and service was even better. I had the "Rusty special" and it tasted great. Wife had a margarita and said it was good & strong. Will be going back soon.

I hadn't been here in years but recently stopped in for dinner. It was really good. I can't remember why I stopped coming but I'll be coming back more often. I had a combination dinner and the cheese enchiladas were my favorite. The salsas were good too.
