Order the beef fajitas, as good as nay around. Service is good but they do a monster lunch crowd so it can cause a wait. Friday evening dinner is also overflow! Everybody likes the food.

The first one that opened was the location in Deep Park, TX. There are now other locations but, for me, the 1st one is the best one. The closer to dinner time the longer is the line & wait. Many believe it's worth the wait & I'll have to defer to them since I'm not a person who waits longer... More

Great service for 6 people! The manager came around once and then another assistant to check on our service. Drinks are okay, food menu is varied. The fried avocado was fun to eat but not a lot of flavor.

Thank Marhaly
Management response:

Thank you! We sincerely appreciate your patronage. Curious as to what drinks you ordered and any recommendation as to what would make the stuffed avocado more enjoyable? More

Food was adequate for a Tex Mex restaurant. Slightly overpriced for the food. Fajitas not quite on par with most places. Skinny, scrawny pieces of meat. Typical of most Tex Mex except for one other place. The other place excels at fajitas. Service was very good, though.

Typical tex-Mex. Really good. Ordered the parrillada. I guess the skillet fajitas. The waitresses tended us with care and always with a smile. Awesome place to eat.

This neighborhood restaurant offers several tasty entrees. The dirty tostada and chicken taquitos are top notch.

The atmosphere is above average close to upscale for a Mexican restaurant. Service was excellent and the waitress made several food selection recommendations. We tried several items and enjoyed them all. The manager even stopped by our table to see how things were going. Everyone was very pleasant and the food was tasty but not spicy, which I was grateful... More

Thank you for visiting and SO happy to hear you enjoyed your first time! I apologize for the mix-up with the Landry's card -- we are not affiliated with the Landry's restaurant group, but think highly of them :). More
