To ensure the safety of our employees and guests, we’ve made operational changes in all of our restaurants. Limited interaction, contactless payment, disposable menus, and additional sanitation practices are just some of the many adjustments you’ll notice as we exercise caution during this time. Rest assured, no changes have been made to the delicious contents of our pie.

In April, we hired Hamilton Health Box to guide our protocol development
and reinforce our safety standards. Since then, their dedicated medical staff has
continued to provide our employees with 24/7 on-call medical support, free
COVID testing as needed, and randomized testing each week.

We want to be part of the solution to halt the spread of this virus—and we hope
you’ll join us in doing so. Please wear your mask and practice social distancing
when inside our establishments. The only way we get through this is together.

They have cleared out about half their tables. The tables were thoroughly wiped down between uses. All the wait staff wore masks. Food and service were excellent as always.

We were looking forward to a fun NYE dinner with friends, but the restaurant was closed. Seems that we should have at the very least received a last minute phone call since you confirmed our reservation.

Food is good somewhat pricey. Nice variety on the menu with the salad and seafood options. The main reason for the lower rating is the service. I made a reservation for 8:30 and when we sat down they almost immediately asked us what we wanted to eat because the kitchen is closing. Why make a reservation time that close to closing the kitchen? Also water wasn't filled but think this was about them closing. Have eaten here for lunch without same issues.

Great service. Our friend’s cheese enchiladas arrived cold. The staff offered to replace and comped them. We also ordered the carnitas which were the best ever when the restaurant first opened. Now they were just rather tasteless and blah. I was envisioning the Smokey flavor and hint of cinnamon, but none to be had. The margaritas, chips and salsa were very good, as was the queso.

Very tasty Tex-Mex food. Our waiter was attentive but not overtly bothersome. I would recommend for a nice lunch,. Parking can be a problem in the evenings and they do have valet.

Service was terrible. Seated outside, waited 25 minutes for a waiter and chips and salsa. Lunch order was delivered wrong and waitress never apologized. Won’t be going back with so many Mexican options in town.

The food quality has gone way down. The food was cold and bland. Everyone of us out of 5 all agreed. Will not be going back. Once was a very good restaurant but the last two times have been awful. I understand covid is happening but to be served cold food is inexcusable. Over priced and underwhelmed. Houston has much better options for Mexican food.

I do realize things are different now during Covid, but left overall disappointed. I've been here several times pre pandemic, and love their food. However, prepare yourself now for a significantly SMALLER MENU, and on top of that a 5% COVID FEE to your bill. Service was not what it should have been either. Can't say I will be returning anytime soon.

It's pretty easy to stay away from gluten in this place if you need to. They don't use flour in any of their soups, last I checked and the carnitas are awesome, not to mention the in-house made corn tortillas. Margaritas are top notch! Can't wait till they start making tamarind margaritas!

I had not seen my family in a while so we decided to get together for dinner. I have come to this restaurant several times now, and every time I order tostadas without cheese due to being lactose intolerant. Somehow, my no cheese modification has been left out the last two times. I never complained, but I simply always wait to eat while everyone else also waits to eat with me. With the times lately, I understand having a limited menu and had to choose something else this past visit. I chose tacos thinking it’s basically the same thing so that’s fine. I was so disappointed. The flavor was completely bland. Plus, I ordered my tacos without cheese, and per usual, received them with cheese. No manager came by this time like they typically do when it has happened in the past. The server was decent. Nothing to complain about with him even though I understand it could have been his or the kitchen’s fault. I’ve never had the same server twice, but my no cheese modification always gets messed up. I don’t remember the food to be bland. I want to give y’all another chance, but this time I want to say something so it can be brought to your attention, again. Thanks for listening.

Disappointed that items on the menu provided were not available. If menu is reduced, make a new menu. Kids menu almost non-existent. You could make some new menus with the additional 5% you are charging. Won’t be going back for awhile.
