I had a very enjoyable meal of veggie fajitas. The vegetables were sliced thinly, which made them much easier to put into the tortilla. There were plenty of thin flour tortillas and a generous serving of refried black beans and spanish rice. My waiter was very attentive. I will be back.

Service was truly very nice.
The food was plentiful and spicy as promised. The food was fairly priced.

The drinks were overpriced considering they were all ordered during happy hour.

I would like to see GF items marked on the menu.

We chose a deep booth and the table top and sides was not clean down at the end near the wall. Classic problem for deep booths, but it was sticky and my cleansing wipe came back tan/brown. Possibly wax build up, I suppose.

There are so many great south-of-the-border restaurants in Houston. Little things can make a big difference on whether to return.

It’s a great location, however, with free parking!

We ate lunch outside and enjoyed the Restaurant Weeks menu. Very generous portions and food was excellent. The music was a bit loud on the patio, but overall we enjoyed the food, service and value for three courses.

Nice and tucked away only complaint is that asking for a medium steak is impossible. First one was well done they made another one it was well done with less seasoning, I was done trying. Server was great he’s still learning very polite Jorge gets a 10 for me.

We had our business meeting in the party room and they turned off the music there for us which was fantastic so we could socialize. With the music on, we couldn't hear one another. The service was fantastic! They kept checking on us and offering wonderful selections. It was great!

I’ve never felt so unwanted in my life. I have up my reservation for the next person behind me since my party was significantly smaller. We got a booth without menus and silverware. We didn’t get silverware at all. Our menus where given to us 10 mins after being seated and the table I gave up received all the attention. I know it’s a bigger tip for the person but I was very upset that we had our birthday dinner here. I wouldn’t reserve again.

Food was not as good as in the past. Cheese enchiladas used to be the best in town, now they changed the recipe, not so much.

We went the day it flooded in Houston, 9/19/19. They were very understaffed. Manager seated us and told us it would be a while. Well, the service was amazing and the food was even better. Management and entire team did an amazing job. Thanks.

We couldn't have asked for a better group of waitstaff waiting on my fiance and I's family and friends. We are frequent visitors of Cyclone Anaya's, and we were so excited to celebrate our engagement with an intimate dinner there with our closest friends and our parents! Thanks for being a part of our journey. It was a fabulous dinner!
