Poor Service overshadows good food
It is really a shame that such good Mexican food is packaged with such poor service. The last 2 times we went to Estela's, they messed up our orders. In addition, I have had an easier time flagging down a cabbie in NY than getting a server's attention at this place. Just having a location on the trendy Davis Island doesn't isn't enough to overcome the rest. If they straightened out the service, I would gladly return and recommend it to others.
It is also important to note that the second Estela's on S. Dale Mabry is far and away superior in it's customer service. My advice is that if you want great Mexican food and great service, go to Estela's on S. Dale Mabry.
