The staff service was good. The food was good. It was a bit more Mexican authentic than your average Tex/Mex. Nice green salsa and guacamole. The restaurant however needs to be remodeled very badly.

Thought I would give Erik's another try after being served inedible meals a few years ago. I heard they had the original cook back and and had done a remodel. We were quickly seated, but it took 15 min for or waiter to take our order or even acknowledge us. There were only two other tables with customers, they were... More

The food is always very good and fresh. The service is inconsistent. Most of the time the service is good.

My colleagues and I sometimes meet to eat at Erick's (not Erik's, by the way) for lunch. I usually try to eat sort of light, so La Reyna is a good choice. One of the friends likes the Chipotle Fajitas and also the fish is popular in our group. The flour tortillas are homemade and to die for. I've also... More

This is my second review as it's our second time to meet our daughter here between Houston and College Station which is halfway. Wow! I had the chicken poblano and I was truly wow'd by the flavors! My daughter had the stuffed avocado (which she had last time as well) and we all were so full that it was hard... More

Revisited Erick's after quite a few months...word around town was that they were just not as good as they once were. Well, on this visit we found the new decor very nice, a real improvement! The service was excellent and quick. The menu has a very wide selection...chips and salsa served as we decided...chips were a bit too thick but... More

We had to find a place to meet our college student daughter halfway and Hempstead was the city to meet so we chose Erik's based on other TA reviews. Yes, it's a hole in the wall atmosphere, but the waiter was very kind and attentive. The food was fresh and very good. I have zero complaints. Kudos to the owner... More

Atmosphere, OK. Wait staff great. My fav is LaReina, at lunch this month it was $7.99 and I was barely able to 'clean my plate'.

This place has great food.The chef gets creative on the menu.Try something that you have not eaten before. There is outdoor seating. We'll worth the stop between Houston and Austin.Or Houston and College Station.It is a little hole in the wall.But excellent service,chips and salsa. By the way Erick is an 11 year old boy of the owner's.
