E J's has friendly personnel and fairly good Americanized Mexican food. They have a standard menu with all the favorites.There wasn't anything outstanding about it, except the service, which was good....and they do have good sweet tea. I will add this caveat, however: every time we've eaten there we've both gotten headaches. That leads me to believe they're using MSG,... More

We went for lunch and were immediately seated. Servers were quick with the drinks and made fresh HOT salsa at our request. Food was served hot and tasty. I had the #1 lunch special, chile releno, taco and another item. Wife had beef fajitias that was sizzling hot. Both meals were good and will eat there again when passing thru.... More

Consistently good Mexican food. Not the best I've ever had but always good. Menu is very typical of the selection in the area.

Great atmosphere, great food, and excellent service. The staff is friendly and caters to your needs. Visited at the busier time of the day(6 pm), but food was still the right temperature and prompt.

This restaurant is always VERY crowded on Friday nights. We got there around 5:30pm to avoid a wait. The margaritas were good, but the food wasn't amazing. I personally like other places in the area better, but is ok for every now & then.

Today was the 4th of July, we opted for a non traditional lunch and chose El Jalisciense in Kathleen, convenient to the Houston Lake Cinemas for an afternoon movie. The service was quick, friendly and the food nicely prepared. The El Jaliscience Salad Texano was exceptional with a great filling of fresh avocado slices, grilled shrimp, steak and chicken with...
