Besides awesome food, Esteban's is a fun place to eat. My favorite is the chicken quesadillas. I have never had a problem with the service as every member of the wait staff I have encountered is friendly and fast.

I ordered their shrimp enchiladas with cream poblano sauce. It had no flavor and looked like white biscuit gravy. I added some salsa and it was ok. My husband ordered the combo fajitas which were excellent! Very tasty and tender. Guess I'll need to go back and try them or something else.

I've tried this place numerous times I guess because I want to like since it is close to my house. Sometimes it's good..sometimes it's bad. I need good chips and salsa at Mexican restaurants and I have had to ask for new chips on more than one occasion here bc they were stale.

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.
