“DISAPPOINTING...TO SAY THE LEAST”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2011

We went to Texas Fiesta in April 2011 to celebrate my wife's birthday...Place was easy to locate and they had valet service...The ambiance was good with old photographs, sombreros, a wooden horse, guns, foosball etc...but the good thing ends there....Hey you go to a restaurant to enjoy good food right??? This place is a big letdown as far as food is concerned....First thing that we ordered....Nachos...They said that they are out of stock!!! Imagine a Mexican restaurant not able to server Nachos...The salsa sauce was very bland...Chicken Picante, which is supposed to be their signature dish...was nothing what I had imagined...All in all a forgetful experience...

“went first time but will not go again.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2011

i heard many advertisements for this place on local FM Radio channel, so tried it out. I went there with my friend. For starters, we ordered simple garlic bread with cheese and chicken wings. Inspite of telling the waiter that the wings shouldn't be spicy; when served, wings were very spicy as if they have used lot of red chilli in preparation; had to return the dish. I cud see color on my fingers after having one piece of chicken wing; it was same after you eat roasted chicken at a chettinad restaurant. garlic bread was also very average, nothing special to it, wasn't even crispy. no dip/salsa was served with the starters. Then for main course we ordered, quesadillia and burrito; burrito was reasonably spicy whereas quesadilia was bland. burrito had a filling of cold chicken, kidney beans and rice (it cud even be sambhar rice) :-).
The only nice thing was fooseball table which was free.

“Good Tex- Mex in Chennai”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2010

I had heard of this place from a lot of friends and was keen to try it out.I was out to Chennai for a couple of days and was glad to try something other than the local cuisine.My host was a little worried about the parking as the location was central but thankfully they had a valet service.

The place, the ambience, the location and the service, all of it was spot on. The waiters were cheerful, quick and helpful. We went with a friend and his family for dinner which comprised of two kids. The place is kid- friendly with the staff willing to pitch in if you need help.They did not have platters or a kids' menu though but a chat with the steward assured me that a kids' menu was in the offing.
The place looked good enough. The trouble taken to do up the interiors authentically was obvious.The food , I felt was indianised. It was a lot spicier than original tex- mex is, but I guess it should go down well with the locals.The quality was good and quantity sufficient to feed one. I would have personally liked my nachos a little more cheesy.
The one thing on the menu that is a must try is the fruit quesadilla. Truly an amazing dessert.
The pricing is very moderate and complete value for money. A good place to try a different cuisine.
