I have my birthday there pretty much every year as it is close to my friends and family and we have a great time with the superb service provided by our favorite server.

We have previously experiences the Town and Country restaurant and went to Durham, closer to our house. The food was good, BUT the restaurant was so noisy that the waiter coud not hear us. In addition the waiter didn't know the prices of the beers. Beers are not listed on the drink menu. He brought us appetizers and entrees at the same time and didn't remove used basket/dish when putting other things on the table.
He brought more water to my husband, forgetting me.
Not to mention the toilets where one door is not closing.
We will never go for a dinner again at this place, even if the food is quite good.
It was no way a good experience.

Really average food. Restaurant wasn’t busy when we were seated and it took close to 10 minutes for someone to come to our table and take drink order. Won’t be going back with so many other great Tex-Mex/ Mexican food options in Houston.

Been going to Cyclone’s since the early ‘80s. Yes, Cyclone’s has had its ups and downs over the years, but this location has consistently outstanding food. My out-of-town friends loved it.

Start with the parking. HAVE to valet, and I don't like people driving my car. The table we got was good, but dear lord is that a noisy restaurant. It's like people go there who have never been to a restaurant before. The server was very good, and the drinks were tasty. The salsa is something I'd never serve, as it was mostly like ketchup. The food however was much, much less quality than I expected. It was plated nicely, and not a crazy huge portion, but a simple enchilada plate for $18, I expect more effort. My wife was sick that night after eating there, but maybe it was a coincidence. Either way, for a dinner for 4 for $180, I expect delicious food. This isn't the place for that in my opinion.

I'd recommend getting some acoustic tiles for the ceiling, and either re-check your recipes or lower your prices. This isn't Mexican food, its an American representation of what Mexican food looks like (maybe in Michigan).

An oldie but a goodie for me. This Houston gem was a first for my ❤️ since moving here from Green Bay WI. We had fabulous margaritas plus happy hour appetizers. Cerviche was my fav but the quest with taco meet didn’t disappoint. Pork tacos and brisket quesadilla were superb! We will be back soon!

Server was terrible. I asked for some hollandaise to go with my Migas, and she never brought it out until the third time I asked. And once she brought it, it was actually ranch not hollandaise. I poured ranch all over my meal, of course I couldn’t eat it anymore, and she didn’t even take it off the bill. I understand accidents happen but the service from Stacy was terrible. Will never go back to this location.

Cyclone Anaya's is an all-around good choice for Tex Mex in Houston. The food is consistent and the service outstanding. Top-self margarita on the rocks is the best in Houston.
