La Casa del Caballo
Houston's Next Great SteakhouseI went with a group of buddies who love to eat. We ordered the Queso Fundido as an appetizer. Warning if you do not love melted cheese with tasty chorizo then you should not order this. I could have probably eaten just the queso by itself without the tortillas that come with it. For the main dish we ordered the famous Tapa de Lomo. Let me tell you this is one exquisite piece of meat. Of course the thing is huge which is why we ordered it b/c we are all red meat eating neanderthals but this cut of eat had beautiful marbling throughout which meant the meat was juicy and flavorful. We were impressed at how they were able to cook this large chunk meat and it was not overcooked or dry. This is the next great steak house in Houston.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Change of PaceRestaurant is a great alternative to standard Mexican fare. Took business associates from out-of-town to restaurant for first time. They thoroughly enjoyed the food/wine. A+++5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMNice placemostly enjoyed our visit. food was very good but service a bit lacking. waiter started out attentive but as the meal went on he became less available. They dont like to split dishes in the kitchen. wedge salad was excellent, large chunks of blue cheese and yummy avocado ranch dressing. Lobst bisq good too. Meats delicious, two of us had the filets, two split lamb chops, all cooked perfectly, very tender. Grilled veggies, Refritos, potatoes come with and were also very good. Ordered dessert (espresso flan, served with rice pudding, very good but small portion) and coffee and it took about 20 minutes to come. There are a lot of excellent steak places so not sure there is a reason to return here, esp. Since we live close to Btwy 8.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGood steaks fixed differentlyThis is a high end Mexican steak restaurant that lives up to its name. Portions are quite large so we split a 12 oz. steak that was very good. Service was good and easy to get to -- at Taft & Westheimer with parking off Taft.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic, original MexicanFantastic, original Mexican cuisine with hearty steaks and ample portions. The service is friendly and attentive. This is a fun restaurant that doesn't take itself too seriously. The only thing it takes seriously are the wonderful ingredients of the food they prepare. It's a classy establishment fit for a fun night out with friends or loved-ones.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasantly SurprisedI was really surprised at how delicious this restaurant was. I know that it just opened 8 weeks ago and they have a few things to sort out, ie. drink menu, valet,advertising etc. We celebrated my husbands birthday with a group of 10 and everyone raved about their food. My husband and I are known to be food snobs so we were pleasantly surprised to stumble upon this local gem. We will definitely be going back for seconds. Very cool ambiance on the inside and the steaks were outstanding!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAttentive, friendly, caring,Attentive, friendly, caring, service. The beef tenderloin was as good as it gets.

Excellent quality and prepared as I like i.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat SteaksOur experience was very good overall and I would return. The food was outstanding. I had the 14 oz shoulder portion and my finace had the centercut beef tenderloin. Both were cooked to perfection and very tender and tasty. We each had a very delicious wedge salad which we could have split. It was big.
Wine list was adequate. They did not have my first choice on the list and we got the last bottle of my second choice which was very good and priced well.
The ambiance was good but not great and the noise level was very loud. When we arrived it was still light and not very crowded but noisy. The atmosphere improved through out the evening as the place was crowded when we left.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGood service and food wasGood service and food was good. Kitchen is open late so is a good opgion4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcelente opcion de comida mexicanaTodo estuvo delicioso, desde el queso flameado de entrada y despues pedimos el Ribeye para 6 personas, nunca habia visto este corte, pero estuvo excelente, todos quedamos satisfechos con el sabor y hasta sobro para llevar a casa, el precio estuvo muy bien, ya que compartimos y costo menos de 30 dls por persona. Les recomiendo mucho este restaurant con su excelente comida.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice restaurant. MostVery nice restaurant. Most of the steaks were on the large side, with leftovers being the norm for most tables. Wait staff was efficient. Owners/managers ambled around greeting some guests, but it did not appear they were plugged into the restaurant's performance.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent decor, ambience,Excellent decor, ambience, service and spectacular food!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful Atmosphere, Food so-soWe started with the queso fundido which was quite heavy, though we expected it to be. However, it only came with 3 small corn tortillas to share between my husband and I. It should also be noted that since they are trying to stray away from your typical tex-mex vibe, there were no chips given beforehand. So basically we were left with a giant pan of melted cheese, and nothing to eat it with. I ordered the enchiladas con pollo, and my husband the brisket. The enchiladas come with 5 huge enchiladas and no sides, and my husbands brisket seemed to be boiled and lacking flavor. It was a bit mundane, but satisfied the appetite. I'd like to try it out again after a few months. Possibly things will have improved by then.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat new restaurant!Great new restaurant! We've talked about trying this new place and glad we did. I think they were a little short on staff because service was a little slow but our waiter was excellent working with us. The food was great! My rib eye was so tender and well-cooked. I couldn't believe how tender it was. The asparagus we ordered was fabulous! They grilled it with salt and pepper only, just like the steak....no butter and the flavor was great! I wanted to order a second plate of it. The decor is very cool too. I highly recommend this restaurant. We will be back.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellent steaks - seasonedexcellent steaks - seasoned and cooked perfectly.

We were all amazed by the 4lb steak that was cooked perfectly. We all agreed that the beans were the best we ever had. The wine was inexpensive and was complimented with a tasty selection of appetizers. The grilled vegetables were crisp, colorful, and not too spicy. My guests and I are looking forward to going back.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMunique space, terrific food,unique space, terrific food, super service and a fun place1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
