Free chips and the best salsa I've ever tasted. Amazing margaritas. The best Mexican food you'll find in the county.

This was our first time here, and it was kind of a random choice near the movie theatre we were going to.

It was a wonderful bit of serendipity. The food was delicious, management was friendly and attentive, but I really want to give a big shoutout to our server Darrell. He was awesome.

He was on top of everything, had a great handle on the menu and helped steer my wife towards a delicious choice.

We will be back for sure!

Our server asked us if we wanted queso and guacamole with our chips, not telling us it was an extra $14. From his tone, it sounded like it was complimentary, as were the chips. We would not have ordered them if we knew it was $14 extra. He was a good server, but should have informed us of the up charge.

We are a frequent visitor to Tex-Mex and this visit did not disappoint . The only suggestion I would make would be to spice up the fajita’s a little bit.

We had a great experience- the food and Margaritas were excellent and the fact that we could book a reservation for 9 people via OpenTable was an added bonus! PS- beware, the chips and salsa are addictive!! :-)

Sat outside - too loud! Food order was incorrect from drinks to food order. When food arrived, fish tacos (which should have been shrimp tacos) were overdone and margaritas were frozen (should have been on the rocks). Guess it was too loud for the server to get the order correct. Plus side - good salsa and chips.

Coconut margaritas are the BEST! We had the fajitas and burritos and both were good. Our table for 2 was in a small room that had 2 other large parties so it was loud.

Three of us dined there Friday night. My husband and I had the seared tuna tacos on corn tortillas. It came with a pineapple salsa and we both commented how we've never seen tacos stuffed as full as these were at Tex-Mex. note that the salsa has a little 'kick' to them w: tiny flecks of jalapeño peppers. Yummy! They were beyond fantastic. Our friend had chicken and shrimp fajitas and she loved every bite of them. We sat inside in the small room, which we all felt became Really noisy as the tables filled up. It was hard to talk without raising our voices to compete with the other guests. That would be my only complaint, but it is part of the ambiance in any dining establishment. Overall, the food was top notch, service was great, prices were spot on, especially in light of the freshness and high quality of it. Oh! And lastly--- the margaritas are the best ANYWHERE! They've got the right balance of tequila & tartness every great Margarita should have!

We had a reservation for a table inside. I am handicapped and did not know the only indoor seating was on the second floor. The other option was high tip tables which I can not get up on. With a lot of help I did go up the very steep long staircase.

The server and bar staff where so nice. We visited on May 5th and considering the date and how busy they were very accommodating. Tex was so funny. It was nice to be able to sit at the bar again. The food was amazing and very authentic. The drinks were great. FYI only 3 margaritas per person since they use 3 1/2 oz. per drink. Thanks for everything. It was a great Cinco de Miya. We will see you again soon.
