They have the best Chicken Tortilla Soup in the area. Esteban's chips and salsa are awesome and the rest of the food is so good. But I really love their soup and salad. My son always gets the Taco Salad and says it is the best in Houston and our area. He drives from Fort Bend just for the Taco... More

Marisol is the waitress that will take care of you and make you feel special. They all do really, but she is our favorite. You won't be disappointed.

This restaurant is time tested and proven to be excellent. The owner Steve is always their to greet you and the quality is never sub par. The salsa is excellent, the chips are perfect, margaritas are good, queso de Esteban is the BEST and the price is right!!!!

Besides awesome food, Esteban's is a fun place to eat. My favorite is the chicken quesadillas. I have never had a problem with the service as every member of the wait staff I have encountered is friendly and fast.

I ordered their shrimp enchiladas with cream poblano sauce. It had no flavor and looked like white biscuit gravy. I added some salsa and it was ok. My husband ordered the combo fajitas which were excellent! Very tasty and tender. Guess I'll need to go back and try them or something else.

I've tried this place numerous times I guess because I want to like since it is close to my house. Sometimes it's good..sometimes it's bad. I need good chips and salsa at Mexican restaurants and I have had to ask for new chips on more than one occasion here bc they were stale.
