Mambo is a jewel. We were in Houston overnite. Hotel staff recommended Mambo. Seafood was fresh, flavorful and served piping hot by a friendly and helpful waitress. Prices are low compared with others near downtown. The manager visited our table once main course was served...More

If you ever crave great seafood you have to go to mambos! It helps they have a fish market set up so you see what you get. Oysters never tasted better! Ceviche is the best!!!! Their fried seafood has amazing flavor!

Description
Established in 1995. Mambo Seafood(R) Restaurants began operating in the predominantly Hispanic neighborhoods of Southwest and North Houston in the mid 1990's with a menu or varied seafood dishes prepared with the best elements of both traditional and innovative American and Latin seafood cuisines. Grilled, fried and steamed seafood roll out of the kitchens served by the pound "family style" or as individual platters. Mambo Rice is a signature dish that guests always rave about! Mambo Seafood(R) features bars where oysters are freshly shucked while guests enjoy a trademark Mambo Chelada(R) with their favorite ice cold imported or domestic beer. The beautiful and gracious Mambonificas™ provide friendly and cordial service while lively Latin music plays from the Juke Box. Most Mambo Restaurants(R) feature a large comfortable patio for outside dining. Mambo Seafood(R) is not just good, its Mambonifico(R).
