I was in town for a day staying nearby at the Westin. I walked down here for a late lunch. The service was good. I had the fish tacos - they were delicious. Huge tacos, the beans and rice were even great. I had a margarita on the side that was amazingly tasty. This has to be one of my... More

We enjoyed our first visit to Irma"s so much that we decided to visit there a second time before we left Houston! From appetizers to drinks to main dishes, all were excellent! And thanks, Greg for the great service!

Irma's is not a fancy Mexican restaurant yet the food is hot, fresh and delicious. The chips and two salsas are nice and spicy. Enjoyed the carnitas. Service is a bit off, but the food makes up for it.

Six of us at table. Drink orders wrong, entrees wrong, bills wrong. Took 20 minutes to get dessert that we ordered, then soapapillas weren't even warm. Guacamole was excellent! Fresh and just the right mix of flavors. Chicken fajitas and chile rellanos were excellent. The no menu thing is dumb, not sure why they think it is clever. It wasn't... More

This was a nice place. Crazy meat options for the tamales and tacos. Service was good but was not ready for a crowd from the ball game. Drinks are weak. Overall the staff was very nice.

it was not crowded on a Friday night? This place is great and should be packed...anyway we arrived...two minor negatives....1) we were seated by the front door in a private alcove. Which was nice, until I realized the door chime occurred repeatedly with every open and close...put people elsewhere if you are empty or turn off the ANNOYING chime 2)... More

My son and I visited Irma's for lunch today and was told they didn't have any menus. The waiter said "Do you see anybody else with a menu?" I looked at the other tables and didn't see any menus. I thought this was strange but thought OK. We were then told of about 4 or 5 dishes, mind you, I... More

Now I should say I was here for a group event, but I got a good look at the dining room and the group menu was chosen from the restaurant's general menu. All was delicious and there was a good selection. When we asked for spicier salsa, a third very spicy version quickly appeared. The service was quick and attentive.... More
