Living in Texas I know Mexican food and Tex Mex food and this was no where in the realm. First off if you have Frijoles in your name, maybe it's something you are known for and serve, confused though because I saw frijoles nowhere. Our...More

Had a late night dinner just before they closed and even then they were friendly and accommodating. Dinner menu was creative, broad and reasonably priced. Atmosphere was very much like a Cantina very relaxed and unrushed. The food was excellent. Loved the Cinnamon tea which...More

A surprise discovery, we've enjoyed Holy Frijoles twice now. A great affordable night out! A chance to try something different from heavy standard chain Mexican fare. All home made. All beautifully presented in upscale style. Lighter spicing, so we actually had a lot to choose...More

This place is awesome! The food is fresh with great flavors, and great presentation. Waitress Kristin was helpful in deciding on type type of food I would like based on not liking spicy foods. Love the cilantro in the salad, very refreshing.
