I like simple Mexican food. It is pleasant for the traveler to be able to order just what you want. It is a good place to visit when in Houston.

Very good food and service, large portions. Parking is a bit tight, but you can park a Pappadeaux nearby, which is owned by the same people. The chips are particularly good. The place is trendy, and the prices reflect it.

Lots of noise and bustling crowds but good service and good food. Went for birthdays and everyone had a good time. Best to go on wed nights and weekends for 2 for 1 fajitas. Call to make sure and go early to avoid long waits.

The food was fantastic. Cheese enchilada was the best. Mom loved the rellano. Fajitas were really good. Steak and chicken. Service was not good at all. She was very nice, but had no clue what she was doing. Meal took forever.

Little Zito's do not have private rooms. If you are looking for Mexican restaurant go across the road to Pico's. They have a nice private room and excellent food and drink.
