    We ordered the chicken fajitas, shrimp fajitas and taco salad. For dessert, we ordered the flan. All of it were delicious! We will be back again.

    Great service and food but it was very difficult to have a conversation oover the noise.

    Hello, Jim. Thank you for the review! Glad you enjoyed the food and service. Looks like you were sitting in our main dining room. It can get loud in there when we are busy. Next time you are in, weather permitting, the patio tends to be a little quieter and is my favorite spot to sit whenever I can. Hope to see you again soon! Jake McMillen General Manager

    Food was great. There weren’t many customers there when we were there so the noise level was fine. Server was great! We had gluten free people in the group and they were easily accommodated! Would go back.

    Wanted to love this place, but didn’t. It was truly just “okay” especially compared to other TexMex restaurants in the area. Pros: Ambiance and vibe, along with decor. The place is cute. Service was good, not excellent, but definitely good. The drinks were our favorite part - happy hour margs and agua frescas are A+ and this saved the experience for us. Salsa was good too, served cold as opposed to the typical warm salsa you find in Houston. Cons: The “warm queso” comes out cold. Disappointing. The chimichanga also came out barely warm. I think the fajitas only came out hot because they are on a sizzling platter. Shrimp was a bit overcooked for my taste, but that may be personal preference. They are a good size and had good flavor! The chimichanga was a bit disappointing, lots of dough, much less filling.. and again, the temperature was not good. Should have come out much hotter, especially because it was served well after I received my fajitas. Server wasn’t super on top of chip/salsa and water refills, I appreciate that at a mexican place and while he was nice, he didn’t come by too often. I’d say avoid if you’re looking for great mexican in Houston, but if you need a happy hour marg and are in The Galleria, go for it and sit at the bar!

    Unfortunately this was our first bad experience here. They no longer allow you to mix and match taco choices. I’m sorry, but for 2 tacos, beans and rice for $18+ (depending on which you choose) you should be able to choose if you want to mix or match. Maybe the waitress was the only one working the entire restaurant not sure. Never got asked if we would like another drink or refill on our waters. As a matter of fact the waitress grabbed my margarita and walked off with it as if it were empty. It was not. I tried to call out to her but she kept walking. I followed her to the bar and asked the bar tender for my glass back, and he handed it back so I could finish my $15+ margarita. I’m very sad that our experience was less than great, so we probably won’t be returning.
