Very loud restaurant. Table was in the walkway and service was slow. Food was okay but nothing great. Will not go back again.
First time here—-so disappointed I waited so long to cone here!!!! Fabulous in all facets: food, music, atmosphere, service. Cant wait to try other menu items
You can count on the food and service it never disappoints. And the tequila menu is outstanding.
Most items were fresh, paella was dry, service was. UST and a bit slow.
The food was delicious and the service was great.
Service was slower than usual even though we went early and the restaurant wasn’t crowded. We had small kids along, and their food came out quickly, but they were finished eating long before the adult orders came out. The pork rib dish wasn’t very good. El Tiempo’s ribs are much better.
We really enjoyed watching the Astros game at the bar tonight. The food was delicious and the service was great.
Hector is a professional and great waiter .
Always a wonderful time at Picos...from the staff, drinks to the food...simply great!
Great service and great food make me keep coming back.
There were three of us on Friday, Oct 3, 2019. Waiter recommended a main course that was not eatable for one of us. Waiter didn’t come and ask whether our food was ok. He failed to notice that appetizer was not eaten and main course was also not touched. When he brought the bill I said that one of us couldn’t eat the main course as the meat was simply disgusting. Waiter asked whether we wanted to take it home... unbelievable
Meat dish looked awful and wasn’t cooked properly. We also had an octopus. Two legs of the octopus were ok, one had a funky smell. Ceviche is huge there and mixed with other stuff - very little raw fish and fish is not that great - big chunks. We won’t be back. Paid over $100 for there people plus tip. Really?
Enjoy the restaurant being a little quieter than their competitors and the tables being further apart so conducive to conversation. Chips are warm and love the roasted flavor in the salsa.
Best Mexican food I have ever had. Authentic with live music, amazing service, and a even better price
Buen lugar para comer auténtica comida mexicana.
This was our fourth time dining here, it was my wife’s birthday dinner. She ordered Fish which very dry and I had grilled shrimp, also just OK. Previously I have had the bacon wrapped shrimp which always excellent, but perhaps anything wrapped in bacon would be?
The service was really tentative, I think it may have been a new waiter?
So we will not be so eager to rush back
A fabulous Sunday brunch buffet! We celebrated a family birthday in style!
Food and drink were great! Service was a bit off. Multiple servers and had to keep tracking one down.
Family dinner. Been here before and knew dinner would be great. Our family is from GDL, MTY, Filipino, and good ole Texas. Be back soon!
The wine is way overpriced
Very disappointed in the menu choices - very limited as compared to the selections seen on line when making the reservation. Price point reasonable if food would have tasted better. Had their version of a skinny margarita- I would not have another. Also building obviously need some updated a/c - had at least 4 tower fans in various areas around the restaurant. Would not recommend to a friend. Will not go back. Too many better choices in the same area.
Wonderful authentic food and great atmosphere. Could have been a bit quieter.
Reliably good food and service in a quiet-ish environment. The roaming musicians were a bonus on Sunday.
Family dinner—we had a great time. Food and service were excellent.
The only issue we had was that service was slow. Our waiter was good and accommodating, it's just that we sat for almost 30 mins before we had a drink and then he did not come back often enough.
Food was delicious- Too loud
The food was ok. Service ok. Server did not make suggestions or offer dessert menu.
Enjoyed all day happy 😊
Great Sunday brunch buffet. Many great mole dishes to choose from. Service took a bit because it was a busy Sunday, but the margaritas helped pass the time. Great value and fun way to choose a favorite dish for regular dining.
Crawfish enchiladas & the sauteed spinach were excellent as always. Our waiter though left a lot to be desired. Only came to our table once after our food was brought out & only checked with the male at our table about the food. Margaritas were bad. Waiter must not have told the bartender no salt because everyone's drink tasted as if they had been poured from a glass that had had salt on it into another glass. One bad waiter will most likely not keep us from returning because the food is good. Margaritas are hit or miss though.
Abraham was fantastic!
Great food; however, extremely noisy. So noisy that it was difficult to carry on a conversation. Please, consult a designer and add carpet or whatever it takes to bring down the noise level!
Great service, food is fantastic along with dessert! Highly recommend Sunday brunch.
... always fabulous... best margaritas anywhere... and Lupe is the best!
Great dinner for family outing(all adults). In town visiting our son who had just moved to Houston. Read multiple reviews about Picos, and sounded like a good place to try. We were not disappointed. Multiple margaurita options and several were sampled; Excellent! Various mole dishes sampled by the table;Excellent! Finished the meal with coffee and dessert, also very good. Service was fantastic. We will definitely be returning on our next visit!!
Staff was very accommodating for a birthday dinner. Food and drink selections were great!
It was all great but they charged me for my birthday dessert !
Great Service and Food !!
The best Mexican food in Houston
I found this restaurant in a top 10 of Houston article. It was wildly disappointing! We went for the happy hour - margaritas were just okay. The tortillas were gritty and the fajitas were dry. Queso looked like it was cut with a can of nacho cheese from Sams club. The ceviche was was oddly chewy, I just left it. I did try the pork belly tacos 7$ for two tiny tacos like you would get at a sushi place. The filling was tasty but it’s hard to mess up what is essentially hunks of bacon.
I miss the old Pico's. I miss the whole grilled chicken breast they used to have. My table ordered the fajitas and unfortunately, I went along with it. I have been eating at this restaurant for more years than I can count and I was truly disappointed in the 75.00 fajita combo for three. The chicken was dry and the meat was all so jumbled together that we didn't even find some of the shrimp until the end. Avoid the fajita combo. I will still go here because of the other food but my first time at the new restaurant was a big disappointment.
