Houston's Most Irresponsible Mexican Restaurant

My family and I just finished eating dinner and vow never to come back. The service was horrible and to top it off they served us spoiled food. When we brought it to the manager's attention, Mr.Cesar failed to do anything and stated I quess it was just your food and,"" out of thirty isn't bad."" I don't know about you ,but would you like to be, ""the one"". I don't! I hope that they were responsible enough ... view more

El Palenque es muy muy skanky!

El Palenque es muy muy skanky! I was told more than 10 years ago that this place had awful food, but I finally figured it was time to experience it first hand. What a grave mistake. I don't know how they stay open. Taco Bell, yes Taco Bell, runs circles around this place. The food is under-seasoned, the salsa tastes like ground black pepper, and the cheese tastes like that cheap crap that doesn't have to be refrigera... view more

We have been going here for years. The food is good. The Margaritas are the BEST! The service is "IFFY" depends on when you go & who you get. ALways a good spot for SPUR of THE MOMENT LARGE PARTYS. We have always been able to do big groups without reservations & not had to wait more than 10-15 minutes even on busy nights. Medium priced. Great for families!

T-Lee's Tip

This resturant has really good food and their service is great. In my opinion, their salsa is the best I've ever tasted, and trust me I love mexican food and I have eaten at a lot of different mexican resturants. I would recommend El Palenque @ Spring Cypress & I-45 north to anybody who wants great mexican food at reasonable prices.

Great Food and Great Service

I'm confused! Your previous reviews on this restaurant must be pretty old. I've been going to El Palinque at I-45 and Spring Cypress for about 3 years. Since I've been eating there, they have NEVER served rice and beans and a cheese puff before the meal. They serve a big basket of warm tortilla chips & warm salsa. They also will bring a delicious salsa verde free of charge upon request. The Margueritas are not ... view more

Its Great

I've been eating at El Palenque for years.We've always had prompt seating without ever needing reservations. Its great for big parties, but you do need reservations for that. The service will vary depending on the amount of business they have. If you go when its packed, of course you won't be getting a great amount of individual attention. But you will always have your drinks filled and anything else you might ask fo... view more

This restaurant owes points.

With all of the terrific Mexican restaurants in the area this one has nothing going for it. From start to finish it's a disappointment. The margaritas taste like lemonade. Rather than bringing all of our meal together they brought the rice and beans first, as that cooled they finally brought the entre and a little while later the tortillas. Frozen Mexican food would taste better. Overpriced for what you get. W... view more
