Tila's Mexican Restaurante & Bar
1111 S Shepherd Dr, Houston, TX 77019
This is a review not only for Tila's Restaurant but also a testimony for the wonderfulness of its owner, Tila. The food is terrific! Every time I go I get something different which quickly becomes my new favorite. I probably have had the Pork Medallions the most and each time they've been incredible. I would have licked the plate if I wasn't in public! So the food being outstanding is a given. But what makes Tila's truly unique is, well, Tila! Before I continue, I should tell you that I am somewhat disfigured by a disorder called neurofibromatosis. In fact, I have what is considered a severe case. Because of this disfigurement, I don't like to go out in public because I don't want anybody to feel uncomfortable around me. Luckily, a friend of mine brought me to Tila's after the Art Car Parade last year and I almost cried! When we entered the restaurant, we were immediately welcomed by Tila as if we were old friends. She guided us to a great table by the bar and fussed over us for about 5 minutes. I told her about my disorder and I could tell that she was about to cry before she left the table. Five minutes later, the waiter arrived with complimentary appetizers; ceviche, guacamole and queso with tortillas! During the meal, she came by to make sure everything was good and surprised us by picking up the check!!! I asked if I could take my picture with her and she said, ""No, let me take a picture with you!"" Then she invited all the servers that were nearby to join us in the photo. When we left she made me promise to come back as soon as I could and now we are Facebook friends. I think sometimes it just as important to rate a restaurant by how they treat you as much as how good the food is. I love Tila as much as I love her food, which is a lot! My name is Reggie Bibbs and I approve of this review.
