I have frequented the Washington location numerous times. The staff has always been wonderful and the food has always been delicious. I highly recommend the fajitas and almost anything on the breakfast menu. If you haven't been there for breakfast yet, you must go!!

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at the new Washington location this past weekend. The staff was super friendly and attentive and the food was awesome. We ate the beef fajitas and had a few margaritas. We sat outside and the ambience is completely different from the inside but it was just as well a good dining experience. I recommend this restaurant with utmost confidence and will continue to frequent all the El Tiempo's and Ninfa's in Houston.

I've been to the one on Richmond and then frequented the one on Katy (was definitely less crowded) but since it moved to Washington, this is my regular location. Their fajitas (beef is best) and castillas (ribs) are fabulous and is enough for at least 2 incl. leftovers, which makes the price very reasonable. I'm so addicted that I go almost every weekend. Then I can properly enjoy their very good and STRONG margaritas (beware). It gets pretty crowded, though, but usually we get seated pretty timely cosidering the no. of people. I have never had a problem with getting someone to take my drink order, so I think the other reviewer must have not been assertive enough, as the waitstaff is very friendly (they are a little inept at times, though, I agree), but I still highly recommend the place. I won't eat fajitas or drink margaritas anywhere else!

Amazing...after two and half hours in the bar area spent begging for a menu and service...nada. We could get drinks, but no one would take a food order...not the waiters, not the manager, not the bartender. They were all very polite, but totally imept. Yes, it was busy, but it won't be that way long with this level of service.
