Hands down my favorite Tex-Mex restaurant. I love the Monterey platter. It's enough for two people or two meals. It's the best

This was stop #7 on our Abuelo's tour of 2017. Have visited over a dozen Abuelo's locations nationwide, but this was our first time in The Colony, TX. We visited 7 other locations in a weeks time. Love this chain!

Restaurant is clean. Well staffed. Server was attentive but not annoying. Food was excellent. Prices are moderate. Definitely want to order the papas rather than the rice. Drinks were very good as well.
