Traveling from Canada n friend recommend to eat at Cuchara Restaurant, Best friendly, great environment, awsome food, best margaritas and my special part of the visit was the manager Mr. Gilbert Rosales kindness and food suggestion to all guest. He made us feel very appreciated. If u are in town please visit Cuchara Restaurant great for vegetarians.

The food is good. Not the TexMex some may have come to expect from orher spots. The service though there, is not their strong suit. But it does share something in common with some of the chilango clientele: a bit pretentious. New facility, nice contemporary decor, good food, and in a great locale, I would recommend paying them a visit today. Improve the attentiveness of the service, and keep the drinks coming when the customer runs low and I promise you to get that 5th store.

While the service forgot about our table after we were sat, the food and our second server made up for it. Had the house margaritas, pollo tinga tacos, and spicy shrimp. ExcelWhile the service forgot about our table after we were sat, the food and our second server made up for it. Had the house margaritas, pollo tinga tacos, and spicy shrimp. Excellent flavors all around. The portions of the shrimp dish and it's accompaniments were quite small, but very tasty. Chicken tacos were a knockout and very filling too. Our waiter was great and made up for the delay by providing the table with a round of tequila shots, excellent choice that was very smooth. I'll likely stick with the delicious appetizers (more than one) and the cocktails on my next visit.

Take it from a Mexico City native: this food is the real deal. The atmosphere is fun and the music is charming. But the food is what really shines. I was blown away by the Tamales and Pozole. Their Frijoles are the best I've had outside of Mexico.

Melisa! Thanks so much for your comment! We take pride in being #MexicoCityInHouston and we love when people recognize our efforts. Please visit us again soon and save the date for our 4th anniversary on September 15. La Parroquia de Veracruz will take over our kitchen and we will have a big "Fiesta Jarocha"!

Sets the bar for brunch in houston. Good prices, great food, and live music! I feel like the people who left bad reviews probably think el tiempo is authentic.

I've always loved the ambiance at Cuchara. I gathered my friends for their Taco Tuesday. At $2/taco, how could you go wrong? The tacos were small and most lacked the flavor I was hoping for. The taco options marinated in chipotle or habanero sauce were delicious though. We topped off the meal with their Cinco leches cake. Not tres. Cinco. It was the best leches cake I've ever had. I'd definitely go back for their normal dinner or brunch service, but their Taco Tuesday.

Authentic Mexican food and happy hour drinks yes please! I can't begin to describe how flavorful the food was and how nice the staff are! Im not a mushroom fan but the Quesadillas De Huitlacoche - you can hardly taste the mushrooms and they give you 3 I ate one of my friends. I had the Esquites and at first corn, mayo and cheese seems a little iffy but it was delicious!

Love the Tortilla Soup and artwork inside. And thank you for your stance on maintaining parent/child order in the restaurant. Disheartening to hear that some of the artwork from Mexico City was damaged by a parent not controlling the actions of there child.
