First off the food is excellent. We went on a Sunday for lunch and the waiter talked about the buffet buffet buffet. We didn't want the buffet. We finally decided to go with the buffet for the kids. Lots easier. One of had the Mexican...More

I have dined here several times through the years. The food was noticeably better when Sylvia was present. I liked the spinach enchiladas, but the last few times I was there they were soggy and greasy and did not taste good at all. Sylvia was...More
I was there for lunch with limited time and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and service. The enchiladas were perfect, soft and tender, no hint of overcooking or chewiness. The beans and rice were seasoned perfectly as was the salsa. We...More
I was disappointed as I've eaten at Sylvia's before. The beef for the fajitas we ordered were chewy, sinewy...not a good cut of meat. We ordered the 1/2lb portion and were charged for the full pound. It was unclear how much beef was brought out...More

Had the Tampiquena, wow is all I can say. Cooked perfectly, med-rare. Presentation is great as well. Comes with tortillas, but you don't need them. Tried 2 different Margaritas, both awesome. I sat at the bar and had great service.

First visit in a long time, but we will be back soon. We had the combo enchilada dinner, carne guisada, and pork carnitas enchiladas with poblano mole. All were excellent! Perfect seasonings and tender meats. The chicken in the enchiladas had tons of flavor, not...More

Apparently this place has been open a while and I didn't know about it. I don't live in Houston any more but my mother does, and she says her friends rave about Sylvia's. I was craving Tex Mex, and it satisfied me, but I definitely...More

This restaruant offers a wide variety of traditional Tex-Mex and Traditional Mexican enchiladas and other dishes. As I recall the menu is 9 pages. The salsa is very good. Margaritas were not so terrific but good enough. Homemade corn tortillas will remind you why flour...More
