Well I'm just a bit disappointed in the food these days! They used to advertise the freshest ingredients for local Tex-Mex anywhere around. They used to have a really good chef! The food was ok, but nothing to "write home about". Cooking 101 - salt & pepper your food...The guacamole needed salt, lime juice and onions! It did have tomatoes... More

In the heat of the summer, it can be brutal sitting in an enclosed open-air space. Add to that the problem of parking and you'd be better off driving to the Cadillac Bar and Grill. The menu is typical Tex-Mex.

We went on a Sunday night because a friend was playing there. We went for dinner and there was only about 25 people there, most were in the backyard waiting for the music.

As unique as they come. A band was playing as we arrived about 5 p.m., but they sent us on through to the restaurant to have dinner without paying the cover. Everyone was extremely welcoming and Carlos was a wonderfully personable waiter. Food was excellent. As another reviewer said, after eating every last chip brought to us (they offered to... More

I prefer my fix for Mexican food in a laid back place without all of the people who need to see & be seen. Too often, some of the dishes that I crave are served only by the restaurants that have become overcrowded with people that I'd rather not know. Every visit to Last Concert Cafe (over the last 20+...

Great food, super drinks and live music! First date heaven! Family friendly but not when the music starts! great place to sit and eat, drink and be merry all day! You have to knock on the door to enter! Limited parking on a dark street, semi rough neighborhood but Texas I s "open carry" so no problem for gun owners!!

Went for the Sunday afternoon acoustic jam session. Drove to the place and wondered what I had gotten myself in to. Walked up...knocked on the door. Yes, that's right...knocked on the door.

Working late in East side of Houston I was looking for somewhere with decent food, close to the freeway. I had no idea what I was letting myself in for. You might call the neighborhood "transitional" with lofts, warehouses and empty lots. The premises are beaten up, artistically decorated and totally hip. The back yard hosts a stage for local...

Another great dinner with perfect margaritas. Didn't have time for the live music out back but it's always been good in the past. We had not been for awhile. So glad to see the place is as fun as it's always been.
