“Still the best fajitas”
Reviewed 6 December 2013 via mobile

A long lunch with an old friend over the best beef and chicken fajitas I've had ...the best way to catch up while enjoying good food and service. Treat yourself and you won't be disappointed.

“Great margarita and guacamole”
Reviewed 2 November 2013

Popped into El Tiempo cantina whilst our car was being valeted across the road. House special margarita was great, the guacamole was as you would expect very moorish!
The place was buzzing and staff very friendly. Will definitely go back to have the full works next time!

“good food good service”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

Had a really good meal here Saturday at lunch. Weather was nice so the patio was the place to sit. Fajitas are the best in town in my opinion. Service matches the great food.

The food is really good and the service is really great. Fun place in a neat neighborhood. I thoroughly enjoyed my brisket enchiladas.

“Best Tex-Mex around”
Reviewed 18 September 2013

El Tiempo is definitely some of the best tex-mex in Houston. Everything that I have eaten there is great! The queso is one of my favorite quesos in Houston. The frozen strawberry margaritas are delicious!! I've eaten the steak fajitas, nachos, and enchiladas at El Tiempo and have never been disappointed. The only downside is that now I won't try anything else because I always want what I have ordered before! The staff is great and super friendly. Also, a great fun atmosphere!
