  • Clifton McAdamsOne of the best & most popular dishes: Las Vegas Plate w/ beef filet, taco & cheese enchilada. A little cheaper for lunch. Gotta have a (well two) margarita.

    55555 by Clifton McAdams


  • Clifton McAdamsNew menu - no new dishes, just (increased) prices. The food's still good, (Vegas combo plate) and a top shelf margarita.

    55555 by Clifton McAdams


  • Ben P.Bit too $$ for me. I'm cheap.

    55555 by Ben P.


  • Jérôme I.Food was very good! But despite making a reservation for 12 at 7:00 PM, on a Thurs. night, we had to wait 25 minutes to get our table ready. This place is very nice but packed!The waiter was awesome!

  • Shane RChips and Salsa are a meal unto itself.

    55555 by Shane R


  • Jarrod JProbably the best TexMex in Houston. Killer margaritas. Damn good fajitas. Try the quail if you're a fan.

    55555 by Jarrod J


  • Brett B.Cañonball is phenomenal

    55555 by Brett B.


  • OJ AOh man, absolutely awesome fajitas and the frozen margaritas...sure too cool you down in the scorching Texan sun. Highly recommended.

    55555 by OJ A


  • Büşra MAmazing mexican restaurant! Might be quite crowded especially on weekends. They gotta find a solution for the noise inside, it makes communication almost impossible

    55555 by Büşra M


  • Augustine V.El tiempo is hands down the best Mexican food in town.. Go for the filet fajitas, either Mexicana or Barry style

    55555 by Augustine V.


  • Neets J.I keep forgetting how bad their chicken is. Beef is ok. Their cilantro sauce is good.

    33333 by Neets J.


  • Clifton McAdamsI eat here more often than home. Joey's dip, huge shrimp stuffed jalapeños, and combo carnitas & chicken Swiss enchiladas. Frozen margaritas.

    55555 by Clifton McAdams

  • Clifton McAdamsStill busy, but not as crowded since new location opened on lower Westheimer.

    55555 by Clifton McAdams


  • Clifton McAdamsSit at the bar. Jessica or Angel will take care of you. Try a Tex Mex plate, or the beef tenderloin fajitas. Joey's queso dip is awesome.

    55555 by Clifton McAdams


  • Kathrine Z.Great food, lousy service.

    33333 by Kathrine Z.


  • Clifton McAdamsBest food of all El Tiempo locations. Tip: Sit on the patio during nice weather. If you like margaritas, ask if Angel is working the bar - he'll add something special (patron or grand mariner).

    55555 by Clifton McAdams

    55555 by Jason C.

    33333 by Gabriel R.

    55555 by Houston Press


  • 002houstonDrink skinny Ritas not only to save a few calories but so we can also enjoy the brisket nachos

    55555 by 002houston


  • 002houstonWe’ve been to all the locations, and recently visited the newest outpost on Navigation, but we gravitate to Montrose’s 1308 for its great patio and neighborhood feel.

    55555 by 002houston


  • candycaneI typically go for the 1/4-pound beef fajitas..which are MUY DELICIOSO! Went with the Las Vegas combo plate today.. It was delicious too. Switch to beef enchilada! Comes with fajitas too! Order sides

    55555 by candycane

    33333 by Angela G.


  • Ted F.Lunch plates are $2-$6 cheaper than the same thing after 3 pm.

    33333 by Ted F.


  • Ted F.The steak fajitas are so good I wonder why I would order anything else. But I feel the same way about the enchiladas and the brisket flauta and the tamales and the chorizo. And the green sauce.

    55555 by Ted F.

    55555 by Rafael


  • Ryan S.The food has never disappointed, but it's very expensive for Mexican food. It's more of a "place to be seen" than a desirable dinner destination.

    55555 by Ryan S.

    55555 by Krissy H.
