The food is OK but there are much better Mexican food places in Huntsville. There is just nothing remarkable about the place and I would not recommend it.

This is an excellent Mexican restaurant; it consistently provides good service and delicious food. The staff members are friendly and attentive and the food is attractively presented. I have never had a bad meal or an adverse experience at Los Pericos and I will continue to visit it when I am in Huntsville.

Late lunch on the road. Very good food and I especially liked the refried beans. Nothing worse than "puréed" refried beans. These beans were perfect with large chunks like they should!

Had traveled to Huntsville to have some work done on our vehicle and needed to grab lunch. Promised the wife some Mexican food, so checked on TripAdvisor and saw that Los Pericos was the #1 rated Mexican restaurant in the area. Boy was it a good choice. They have some of the best Mexican food we've had in a long... More

Los Pericos is my "go to" Mexican restaurant when I visit Huntsville, Texas. The service is friendly and the food is delicious. An out-of-town friend who joined us for lunch today said this was the first time he has dined at Los Pericos; he vowed it will not be his last. He, like us, thoroughly enjoyed his lunch.

Our family was traveling through Huntsville and after a long day of shopping we were craving some good Mexican food. We decided to give Los Pericos a try. We were extremely pleased! The service was outstanding! The food was perfect...just what we were hoping for! We will definitely add this to our list on our return trips!

The food is always good here, as well as the service. There is a separate bar area and the margaritas are great. We go here somewhat 'regularly'. There are ALOT of Mexican food restaurants to choose from in Huntsville, but I put this in the Top 3.

First night driving south to north in Texas, wanted Mexican, and didn't want to eat at the chain restaurant that you could see from the highway. Appeared to be family run, very welcoming, nice to get chips and salsa sitting down. Beef fajita platter was great. Meat very tender and tasty.
