Ate there over 4th. Laid my cell phone on corner of table. Turned around to get glasses .Turned back, waiter was there. Picked up menus and left. Phone was gone.Waiter swore he didn't see it. Manager swore he didn't see it on video. Used phone tracker. Called back manager laughed. Told him I would call police if they didn't come up with it. Four days later, received a call saying they had found it in menu bin. That I must have closed the menu on it! Tell me how you can pick up a menu with a cell in it and not know something is there just from the weight? Also how would you carry a menu with a cell without it falling out unless you were intentionally balancing it? Then how would you dump it in a bin without hearing it clunk?! Folk, they have a nice scan going on. Waiter steals something then manager swears the video shows nothing. I say they are liars and thieves. Food is pretty good, but don't trust them to not steal from you.
We left Andalucia?s next door after experiencing horrible service and went to the tried and true Guadalajara?s. They have the best HH in downtown. Drinks are tasty and strong, and the hh food menu is also very good. I love their mojitos ? very fresh and you can taste the fruit. Chips and salsa a…

Simply put... the finest salsa I have ever tasted. When I first moved to Houston in 1999 after graduating from college, I lived in this area in the heart of Second Ward (East End for those trying to make it sound trendier). I used to go here all the time because it was very affordable and I espe…
Ive lived in Houston for 2.5 yrs and Ive finally found my favorite live music venue. This is where its at, the place Ive been looking for but could never find. Parking a bit tricky not being familiar with that area but once inside, it was one of the best nights Ive had in a long time. Killer loc…
21. Dona Maria
When great food and a friendly family owned atmosphere fill a room adorned with christmas decorations and random crap from a mexican garage sale, you're bound to have a wonderful experience. At least you are at Dona Marias. I'm writing this review because they had some killer homemade corn tor…
This by far is one of the best Burrito places in town. I think they have better choices in toppings and tortillas than the competition. The price is very fair and you really want someone to carry you home after putting away one of these bad boys!
I love this place -I gotta tell ya! The food is great and fresh, and especially for me it is very authentic(being mexican)that is important to me. ""Parilla Mixta"" is the best dish- it is grilled Beef fajitas,chicken and shrimp with a tostada of Guacamole and pico de gallo-it also comes with c…

I have been a life long customer, and it kills me to post this negative review. Carlos' has gone down hill. I have been over ten times in six months, and every time I go the restaurant is totally empty. The food is amazing and the price is great(if you can get that price) On my past two visits, the waitress has changed my order to make the bill more expensive. I let it slide the first time, but the 2nd time was enough. The manager was so clueless to business and failed to care that my receipt did not match what I got. I am never going back and would like everyone else to be very aware of your order. I recommend the restaurant for its food, but not for the customer service and waiting staff. Recommended meal: The Don Lupe - $8.55 (I urge you to watch your ticket if you choose to go after reading this)
We went to Maggie Rita's on a Sunday afternoon. The restaurant at first looks closed because to "Open" sign was off. We decided to try anyway. We sat at the bar. The server was nice, but there was definately no suggestive selling. She was an order-taker. This being our first time here, we really didn't know what was good. We ordered the Stuffed avocados for an appetizer. It was so bland that we seasoned it ourself and asked for some aoli to dip it in. Both of our dinners where just as bland. There was nothing special about the margaritas as well. Then we got the bill and realized we had spent $73. for blah food. I will not return.
Authentic Mexico City street tacos and Tortas. Very fresh, there's no freezer and no microwave. All made from scratch. Staple items are the chillango tacos, there's 5 small yellow corn tortillas. Just tell the taquero "One of each con todo" and they'll hook you up. They slow cook for 5 hours the carnitas and the barbacoa.Try the Made from scratch Horchata, Jamaica or Lime with Chia!!! All natural.High energy ambiance. The theme or the restaurant is a taco stand in México City, as every taco stand has, they have old TVs playing old movies, novelas and the very first Chabelo episode playing.Great place.
I went to Romero’s Las Brazas Mexican restaurant on November 14, 2015. There was 6 PM and only 6-7 table's consumers. My husband and I have wait 15 minutes and nobody put any chips on our table until the waitress who the only one wore white came and asked if we had decided our dinner. After I used my credit card pay the bill (total 50 dollars), and kept the receipt. I put 8 dollars cash for tip. However, when I got my bank statement, this restaurant charged me more 3 dollars! Be careful this restaurant! Those people are stealing money from you! I will not go there again!
It was our first visit to this restaurant, and we really loved it. The employees were friendly and helpful. The menu was full of various choices and it was hard for me to make a decision on what to order. The prices surprised us, especially when we saw the quantity and tasted the quality of the food! The shrimp was fabulous, very fresh and tasty. The fajitas were very flavorful and more than enough, with yummy tortillas. The borracho beans, rice, tortillas, chips and salsa were all outstanding. We will find excuses to get to that part of Houston to eat there again.
Although the food is generally good, an experience recently ruined it. I went for the fajita special they were having. With a half pound of fajitas they brought 2 tortillas. I asked for 2 more so we could finish the meat. They charged $1.20 for 2 tortillas, never had this happen in any Mexican restaurant I have ever been to. Never been served only 2 to begin with, except Sylvias. Also, when change was brought to my friend when paying, only bills, no coins, were returned.
We happened into Moreno's last Friday evening and discovered a triple treat.The service was great, the food was delicious, and best of all was the liveentertainment - a classical guitar player and singer, Vicente Castaneda, recentlyfrom Mexico City and Oaxaca! His performance included the traditional Spanish love songs and a stirring rendition of "Guantanemera".Conclusion, good food and Vicente make a powerful combination.
Food was generally good and service was good, which one should be able to expect at a 18% gratuity being added. The only thing that totally below par were the tortillas. They were so tough and hard that I though I was going to loose a tooth trying to eat my fajitas. 4 in our party had meals with tortillas and all felt the same. I am giving only 3 stars because tortillas are something a Mexican restaurant needs to be able to do well.
