Had an office luncheon here last week, hadn't eaten here in probably 15 years. The food was very mediocre, I ordered chicken enchiladas suizas but the chicken was so dry I went through two waters and a beer just to get it down. The salsas (red and green) were nothing more than thin gruel, no flavor, quite watery, just not... More

Seems as though they have a "happy hour" around 6 that draws a pretty loud crowd, but even so we were seated quickly and the wait staff were friendly. Food arrived promptly and was what we expected. Stuffed Jalepeno's with Shrimp were pretty good from Appetizer menu.

Went there the first time and spent most of the evening BSing with friends while drinking beers and margaritas. Drinks were good, food seemed average. Went back a few weeks later and when we walked in the wait staff seemed like we were bothering them because we asked if they seat us or we seat ourselves. Ordered the stuffed jalapenos... More

Was visiting Houston with two co-workers and we needed a fast lunch. Chips and salsa were good - we all liked our food but didn't think it was anything super out of the ordinary - just Mexican food like we find at most Mexican restaurants. I did hear that the students of University of Houston Clear Lake love this place,... More

Good food and atmosphere. The service was lacking to some degree but that just messes up the tip percentage. We will visit again.

I went there with my wife and some other coworkers for lunch. My wife and another co-worker both got the tortilla soup. ($7.49) my coworker sent his back because it tasted WAY too salty and got something else with no hassle. My wife didn't want to be a pain and send it back so after trying about 6 - 8... More

Don Pico's has cheap margaritas at happy hour, and they are really Ok for the price. On certain weeknights they run specials on their fajitas for two. They are also adequate. This is not a fancy restaurant, but it is festive. The prices and location for me will keep me going on week nights.
