We had a reservation for a table inside. I am handicapped and did not know the only indoor seating was on the second floor. The other option was high tip tables which I can not get up on. With a lot of help I did go up the very steep long staircase.

Our waitress was rude. We ware seated closer to 8:50 and our reservation was for 7:15. Our waitress ignored us and served newer guests before us.

Horrid experience!

The server and bar staff where so nice. We visited on May 5th and considering the date and how busy they were very accommodating. Tex was so funny. It was nice to be able to sit at the bar again. The food was amazing and very authentic. The drinks were great. FYI only 3 margaritas per person since they use 3 1/2 oz. per drink. Thanks for everything. It was a great Cinco de Miya. We will see you again soon.

Waitress continued to tell us that we only had 20 minutes to eat and we hadn't even received our food.

Poor Customer service. Poor planning from management.

The service was excellent as they readily accommodated "special requests" with no issue. Our food was delivered cooked to Order and was fresh, hot and correct. The server was very pleasant and actually enjoyed her position. I would definately go back again!

We had not been back for a year since the pandemic began. Food and drinks were as good as ever, Tex was fantastic, friendly and quick on service but with a relaxed atmospheric. Can't wait to go back!

Dinner out with the spouse and Tex-Mex never disappoints. Fajita’s are the best around and my wife says the tuna tacos are great! I don’t have to say anything about the margarita ‘s.

If you aren't looking for "Mexican" food, you might like this place. The cherry mole on the cheese enchilada was straight up nasty.

Another enjoyable dinner at TEX -Mex, dinner was good and the drinks were excellent. I have notice over the years that the portions are shrinking a bit.

My son and I accidentally entered through the bar area of the restaurant and I was not happy to bring him there. Soon enough we found the restaurant with a help of a waiter and was very comfortable with the place. The ambiance is very cute and the food was delicious.

Finally went to this restaurant after driving by for years!! Active bar downstairs and dining rooms upstairs. Cute colorful ambiance, and our waitress was great!! Food was decent, just nothing special. My fajitas were not as well cooked as I like, and I was surprised my meal didn’t come with rice. I shared my husband’s French fries which were very good.

Will come again for a casual dinner out.

We always have a blast at Tex Mex! Haven't been indoor dining in the past year but we chose to try it out because the tables were said to be well-spaced out, and they were. We had the upstairs almost to ourselves on Saturday evening. The food was amazing and of course the margaritas are second to none. Wait staff was perfect. 5 stars always!!

Margaritas were amazing, food was amazing, service was amazing and my friends and I loved the ambiance! They have multiple dining rooms so we felt comfortable being separated from other groups due to covid. Will definitely be back!

The food, service and ambiance is always phenomenal. My family and I have been patrons for years; whether it’s meeting a friend for happy hour or just having a family meal, it’s always been our favorite. Everything is made from scratch and delicious-you can’t go wrong with anything you pick from the menu. They have an excellent range of different beers on tap, plus some of the best tequilas, whiskeys and bourbons. You won’t be disappointed!

We have been going to Tex Mex Connection for over 10 years. They are, hands down, the best mexican restaurant in the area. The food prep and presentation is authentic with delicious combinations of flavors and always fresh ingredients.

The food is ALWAYS good. The service is ALWAYS good and quick. It was a very slow Sunday so the noise was down but it is usually pretty vibrant in terms of sound.
