Esteban's was my go-to for TexMex in League City. But the last 4 times I have eaten there have been very disappointing.
Last night was typical of my recent experiences. The hostess sat me in a corner behind a large group, such that I had to squeeze up against other people to get to my table. I waited over 5 minutes to have chips served and get my drink ordered.
After waiting a long time for the waiter, I ordered a simple dish of chicken tacos al carbon with rice and frijoles ala charra and with a side dish of chili con queso.
When the food finally arrived I was served refried beans rather than frijoles ala charra. The food was only warm on the outside, the inside of the tacos were actually quite cool. I ate it anyway, but these were the worst tacos al carbon I have ever eaten, in addition to being cool (seriously, almost cold, like it came out of a refrigerator) the chicken was dry and almost inedible.
The waiter never came and asked if my meal was OK. When he finally did come by I asked for my check so I wouldn't have to wait an additional 10 minutes for him to drop by again.
I wrote a note on the receipt explaining what had happened. No manager or supervisor came by to ask what was wrong.
This has happened several times, it isn't an isolated one-time experience. The last 4 times I've dined there the food has been cold and sometimes with visible standing grease.
Walking out I saw my waiter laughing and joking with some people at another table. No wonder he didn't have time to check on me and see if my meal was OK.
Consistently bad food over several visits combined with poor and indifferent service. There are plenty of other TexMex places around here, so this was my last visit to Esteban's. DWilkers 281-687-9897
