It's been about 18 months since my first visit and I'm a regular now! Everything I have ordered has been delicious, but my new favorite dish is the beef filet medallions covered in a white sauce with garlic mashed potatoes and skewered vegetables! The Bay Area of Houston is blessed to have many good Mexican restaurants, and this one is up there among the very best. The black bean dip really stands out as something you can't find anywhere else. Flour tortillas are a cut above, ranking up there with Eduardo's in Webster and El Ranchero in LaPorte. La Escondido is a nice place with good servers and food that deserves a try.

The service and food are very good, and the margarita, well...yum.
Like the way they also serve black bean dip with their salsa chips.

La Escondida is a great local Mexican restaurant in Friendswood. Starting with the chips and salsa, in addition to the traditional red salsa, they serve a black bean salsa that is unique to them and very delicious. My wife and I ususally eat a mix of chicken and beef fajitas there. They serve them with sauteed vegetable medley of onions, carrots, mushrooms, and bell peppers. The meat is tender and juicy. They have a bar and televisions mounted around the walls. The atmosphere is casual and they are open for late night dining as well as breadkfast, lunch, and dinner.
