General Info:
Established in 1995. Mambo Seafood(R) Restaurants began operating in the predominantly Hispanic neighborhoods of Southwest and North Houston in the mid 1990's with a menu or varied seafood dishes prepared with the best elements of both traditional and innovative American and Latin seafood cuisines. Grilled, fried and steamed seafood roll out of the kitchens served by the pound "family style" or as individual platters. Mambo Rice is a signature dish that guests always rave about! Mambo Seafood(R) features bars where oysters are freshly shucked while guests enjoy a trademark Mambo Chelada(R) with their favorite ice cold imported or domestic beer. The beautiful and gracious Mambonificas™ provide friendly and cordial service while lively Latin music plays from the Juke Box. Most Mambo Restaurants(R) feature a large comfortable patio for outside dining. Mambo Seafood(R) is not just good, its Mambonifico(R).

Best Seafood and Michi's

My favorite seafood place and Michilada's. I crave this place every week just for the freshness and flavor. My best dish to order is the Steamed Garlic Tilipia with white rice and a salad which they serve with a lime and slice of jicama. The faces of the staff are mostly always new, there are a few who have been there awhile and yes most do not speak english but as long as they can get my order right and keep those Michi's coming I'm really just a happy girl.... I enjoy Mambo's with family and friends, my kids love the atmosphere and are not shy about running to the quarter machines. I absolutely give this place an A+...

Very Good Seafood (especially Grilled Snappers) at a very reasonable price

I was introduced to Mambo about two years ago and since then I have been there almost about 15 times. Though the atmosphere is just 'okay' and most waitresses either do not speak English or speak very little English, they all have been quite courteous each time we have been there. On one occasion we thought the food was over-cooked and somewhat different than usual, but then we thought it was probably just a fluke. After all, places like Red Lobster, Pappadeaux, Outback, Saltgrass etc have all disappointed me on at least one occasion so why should Mambo be any different?

Overall it's a wonderful and an inexpensive place to eat. I go there at least about once a week. Where else are you served a whole snapper, cooked your way in delicious spices all for about $12.00 depending on the size?

too slow and crowded and they dont speek ANY English!

It is sad that such great food (the rice ummm) is accompanied by 2 hour waits and 16 year old waitresses that speak NO ENGLISH AT ALL! It is sexist, but these young super hot fine mexican girls may look good, but give horrible service.
DO NOT take your children. This place is boracho heaven. Drunken rowdy Mexicans will go barffy on them (as happened to me)

Not good on timely lunches

Food and pricing is great. You'll need 1-1/2 hour lunch hour.

They cannot seem to bring the tickets to get paid out. With the good food and prices, tried lunch 6 or 7 times, but cannot make it in an hour. (I work 5 minutes from there)
Unable to make it (waiting on ticket to pay-out) for lunch anymore.

GREAT FOOD!

THIS RESTAURANT HAD GREAT FOOD, AND IT WAS AFFORDABLE! GREAT FOOD WITHOUT ALL OF THE RIFF RAFF OF HAVING TO DRESS UP. IT'S FUN AND CASUAL. I WILL GO BACK DEFINATELY. IT WAS SO NICE TO SIT OUTSIDE ON A SUNNY DAY. EVEN MY KIDS LOVED IT. I DIDN'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT THEM BEING TOO NOISY. LOVED IT.
