This place has quite a wide menu of Mexican and Tex-Mex food, including enchiladas, fajitas and tacos. The quality of the food is very good, and the service friendly. The restaurant itself is quite large, but not terribly cozy, and is located in an open...More

These guys are always friendly and ready to bring on the delicious food! Fajitas here are the best! The salsa is my favorite also. Frozen margarita with salt, and you can't find a more satisfying Tex Mex meal IMHO! So glad Escalante's is in the...More

My taco salad was the most bland I've ever had. So tasteless that I didn't eat it and the server graciously removed it from our check. Husband had a combo lunch of an enchilada, an empanada, shrimp kisses, refried beans and rice. He ate it...More

A large group of us celebrated my great nephew's Baptism today at Escalante's in Meyerland. They had reserved the "party room" so it was no surprise it would be a large crowd - but only 1 server and 2 helpers were assigned. Drink orders took...More

I treated a young friend (13 yrs old) to dinner who requested we eat here. The experience was made special when the waitress asked him if he wanted to help prepare the table side guacamole dish. He was thrilled and helped as the waitress guided...More
