Went to Jorge’s before a performance At Winspear Opera House. They were short-handed, but the servers on duty did their very best to accommodate the crowd, and get us out timely.

The food was good, but I prefer Mia’s or Banditos for consistent, affordable, great tasting Tex-Mex.

Went to Jorge's before the theater. Good food with a nice atmosphere. Not the usual Tex Mex. I enjoyed the flavors and would definitely go back.

Great food and service! The chips were the perfect thickness. All 4 in our family got something different to sample each other’s. Rare-find Carne Guisada is my hubby’s favorite and they nailed it. Beef fajitas were seasoned well and tender. Cheese enchiladas weren’t like just every other place and the grilled chicken and veggies were delish.

They were extremely accommodating of our group of 16 and had our table ready to go for us upon arrival. Our waitress did a fabulous job keeping up with us and always with a smile! The food was fantastic. I had the veggie enchiladas, but had some of my nephew’s taco salad & my mom’s fajita nachos-both of which tasted amazing! Our (last minute) family get together was a huge success thanks to Jorge’s! Highly recommend!!

Pre AT&T Performing Arts Center performance, very busy. They seemed a little understaffed. But, the food was good. The waitress was great, running around like crazy and still kept her cool.

Jorge’s always seems to be understaffed on weekend evenings. Our waiter was also the Host and Batender. Poor guy was so nice but overwhelmed. He suggested ordering appetizers in lieu of entrees to get food quicker. I’ve been here two other times on a Saturday evening with the same results. Definitely need new management.

Could tell short handed. Host was also bartender and had to wait 10 min for him to come seat our group. People backed up behind us. They weren't answering the phone. Not while I was there or when tried to call saying we were running a little late.

I’ve been to this restaurant several times and it was awesome. This time, however, we waited 10 minutes before anyone even acknowledged us and another 10 before someone came to the host stand to seat us. When we entered the dining room, it was in complete disarray. The food was mediocre, drinks were okay, ambiance wasn’t what it was in the past. Everyone has an off day, hoping this was the case.

My favorite dish there is the Galan Pollo, but they ran out this night, so I was a bit bummed. They super apologized. I ordered something else that was good, though, so it's okay. We'll be back!

I think y’all just need to find out when booker t has events. Bc the wait staff and kitchen couldn’t handle the crowd. We had 5:30 reservations and didn’t get our food until 6:20. We ordered at 5:45. Drinks from bar orders couldn’t be taken , my iced tea wasn’t refilled once .. we love your place. By our friend’s at another table didn’t even get food. We all had a 7pm show and had to leave by 6:50.

I was able to make a reservation online, but arrived at the restaurant only to find they were closed for Labor Day weekend. We were left scrambling for a place to eat before our show. I had been raving about how good Jorge’s is and we were looking forward to margaritas and great food before our show. Very disappointing!!!

Made a reservation for 8 for before a show and when we arrived they were closed “for Labor Day”. There were other folks standing in front in the same position as us. Put us in a bind .... very disappointing.

I made a reservation for two on the Open Table website. My friend and I arrived at the restaurant on Saturday September 1st at are reserved time only to discover that the restaurant was closed for three days of the Labor Day weekend. I I had received an email confirmation for that day and time from OpenTable. Other people arrived as we were leaving who had also made reservations with openl table. Somebody really dropped the ball!

The service was slow. The waiter didn't check in with us. We ran out of water and couldn't find anybody to refill it. So we were thirsty, didn't have water chip anything for a very long time. When they finally got to us they took the order and got it wrong. First we waited a long time for it and then it was wrong and then you wanted to fix it. So then I had to wait for it to get fixed. Then it was soggy and wet and just awful. I had the flat enchiladas with two eggs on top. It was awful. And it was expensive. My friend got a quinoa bowl with what look like overcooked scrambled eggs on it. And for the price she paid for it it was the smallest appetizer I've ever seen. All told then it was awful, the service slow and to top it off it was expensive.

We decided to try Jorge's out before attending the Winspear Theatre. The location is ideal for theatre goers. Eduardo, our service, was fast, courteous, attentive to our needs, and a very good waiter. He got our meal out quickly so we had time to enjoy it before attending the play. Food and drinks were good and ideal location to all the theaters.
