We like the ""build-a-meal"". You can ask for charro beans instead of refried. Also, great green sauce!

not bad for a neighborhood eatery 12/7/2010

table of 4 on dec 4th, 2010. the pro's: real good fajita nacho's, snapper veracruz & guac. very good prices. cons: waiter's english wasnt his 1st language & his service was a tad slow. the red & green sauce [served w/tortilla chips] -had a weird taste & chips were stale. went again december 2011---real good..everything! woohoo! on the wedsite, i read about & tried their house special~a cocktail called, the 3 witches~merlot, orange vodka~~not sure waiter understood so, what i got tasted like a weak sangria. we asked for a don julio frozen & on the rocks marg~~this cocktail had both its good & bad side~~for the price, it was a very good pour~~lots of julio~~but, 'almost' too much~~on the edge of not being tasty enuff 2 drink. unless, i lived in the neighborhood i wouldnt go again. more

Bueno stuff 7/2/2010

I've eaten their food many times over the past few years but i've only actually been in the restaurant once. For most events that we have at my job my boss orders food from Teotihuacan. We are never disappointed. Everything tastes really great! The corn tortillas are especially impressive being hand made. I can eat them by themselves and I have a hard enough time eating a corn tortilla with something in it (I prefer flour.) The fajitas are always tasty and I love the beans. Now, I love guacamole but I'm not crazy about there's. For my taste there is too much Jalapeno in the mix. I prefer my guacamole to be little to no spicy. But that's me. Lately the rice has been a little bit on the dried out side but still better than the rice I cook at home. Pros: Corn tortillas Cons: Spicy gucamole more

Solid Texmex with a slice of Heights culture 3/21/2010

It is a beautiful Sunday afternoon and you must feed your family of 8 with authentic, home-cooked and satiating food. The menu must be diverse to please everyone, toddlers and sophisticated palates of 20 somethings alike. Your budget? $20. You have only one answer: an authentic and consistently satisfying Tex-Mex, erring on the side of Mex, eatery tucked away on airline drive. Okay, perhaps this is an exaggeration but you get my point. Tex Mex, not a difficult cuisine to master at home, is all about pleasing a diverse group with consistently good, traditional and inexpensive dishes. Teotihuacan shines in each of these areas. Particulary alluring are the breakfast plates. Choices range from porkchops to chilaquiles and are served with sides of a tamales and unlimited corn tortillas guaranteed to be straight off the comal, all for unerring $7. Weekday dinner specials are just as inviting, particularly during happy hour when even a premium tequila margarita can be enjoyed for a just few dollars.. While neither the food, prices or ambiance are *particularly* special, somehow they come together to create a restaurant that is quick to become anyone's favorite Tex-Mex joint. Chips fresh, salsas flavorful, servers joyful, servings plentiful, you just kinda have to love this place. You even love it on an early Sunday afternoon when it is wall-to-wall packed with families lapping up Mexican plates like cattle, young wild ""calves"" running and screaming freely about the patio. The superb food draws in a crowd as diverse and colorful as the culture that inspires the cuisine; neither language nor affluence can divide the crowd that comes together in their love of great Texmex . Hands down Teotihuacan is the best value for money that you'll be able to find in the city. more

Love it 5/4/2009

Not the best mexican food in Houston. But for some reason it might be my favorite restaurant. Perhaps the service isn't perfect. But it's OK every time. The same for the food. Not the best, but it's pretty good every time. These guys are super consistant. Love this place! Pros: Good service good food Cons: Crowded more

Great food and smooth ritas!!! 9/23/2008

I just love, love this place. I've become a regular here. And so have my friends and family, that I've taken there with me. I'm from the Heights and this place is by far my favorite for fresh mexican and good ritas!!! Prices are great. And it has a great patio you get a good breez even when it's hot out. But don't tell to many, it's a hidden gem try and keep it that way. Pros: everything Cons: n/a more

Tasty and reasonably priced with great Mexican seafood dishes. 9/12/2008

My boyfriend and I went there today for the first time after receiving the recommendation from a friend. I love shrimp en brochette, and I heard the shrimp caliente was very good there. We were not disappointed. The chips and smoky red salsa were wonderful, but the verde was my favorite. The queso with fajita meat was nice and peppery. I also enjoyed a Senorita Margarita at the recommendation of my waiter, but the shrimp caliente was to die for. Sauteed in garlic, peppers, butter and wine and served with a side of guacamole salad and tortillas, this dish was one of my absolute favorites - it was also reasonably priced. I highly recommend this restaurant. Pros: Good, inexpensive food; great drinks more

Wow, possibly a new favorite! 7/18/2008

I've been here several times and always appreciate the food at great prices. But this past time, the food was especially awesome. Any fajita entree (there are many to choose from) is a winner. The margaritas are huge and though a second would have made the night zip right along, I safely stopped at one. This is quickly becoming an outer Heights institution, so please don't go here, stay away! Pros: fajitas, margaritas more

Great Mexican Restaurant 5/15/2008

Casual Mexican restaurant great for families. Tastey food and the Perfect Margarita (with a splash of Patron) compliments any dish you choose from their menu. The grill (comal) is the best way to go for 2+. Highly recommend it. more

weak drinks 10/2/2006

met a friend there for happy hour because the margaritas were only 99 cents on the rocks and $1.99 for frozen. While they tasted ok, they were very weak. I only had chips and queso to go with it but could barely feel any effect from alcohol after three drinks! Typically, three margaritas from anywhere else would have me looped. Guess you get what you pay for. Pros: ok ambiance Cons: weak drinks more

You should really try this place 8/24/2006

Awesome authentic Mexican food. Great prices. My wife and I meet there for lunch very often as it is a good middle location between our jobs. I frequently crave this place because it is so good. The beef fajita burrito is excellent with melted cheese and gravy oozing off it. The beef is wonderful. Way more than you would expect for the small price tag on these delicious items. Great lunch specials for 5 bucks are also a daily feature. I could not come up with anythinig negative to share, apparently niether could anyone else(at the time of this writing). Pros: Food and Service. In my opinion the best I have seen in Houston to this day. Cons: Parking can get a little tight at lunchtime more

Best Fajita caterer 7/9/2006

I haven't visited the restaurant but will do especially after reading the reviews posted. Actually, I never heard of this place until our department catered a beef and chicken fajitas luncheon. The fajitas came with all the trimmings and I especially love the the homemade tortillas. The food quality was excellent especially being delivered to our location. Overall, the food was super and I plan to use the caterer for my own personal entertainment. Pros: Excellent Beef and Chicken Fajitas more

Excellent! 6/7/2006

I almost hate saying anything about this place because I love it and don't want it to get too crowded! But, that being said, it is great!! The food is awesome. The corn tortillas (and I normally hate corn tortillas) are to die for as is the queso. Pros: corn tortillas, nice deck more

Awesome Mexican Food!!! 10/21/2005

Always great Mexican food served at Teotihuacán. They serve 2 different types of salsa for chips and are both highly additive. Their daily Lunch specials are the best value in town. Where else can you get a rib eye or 1/2 chicken plus all the works for 6.99 - 7.99? Never a disappointment when I visit this hideaway. Pros: Great Food, Inexpensive, Good Service more

Always a pleasure - and good food! 8/16/2005

This place has great food and margarita's. The service is good. Food is inexpensive. You can even split entree's if you wish as the food is quantiful. I recommend this place highly! Has been a great find! more

Great value and great food! 1/10/2003

What a nice surprise. My friend and I were craving Mexican food the other night and we came across this place. The prices were very reasonable and the food was excellent. It's true Mexican food - not the Tex-Mex stuff. I recommend this place to everyone now. Pros: Inexpensive beer, Outdoor patio more
