Stopped by for the music. Margaritas were great and people were so friendly. Had an appetizer and enjoyed the atmosphere!

Angel's is one of the best places to eat south of the border. The service is very friendly and very good. We always enjoy the food there. Wheter it is seafood, Mexican food or a game platter it is good.

Started with the margaritas and flaming cheese. Margaritas not to my liking but others in the group loves them! Flaming cheese w chorizo good, but too many onions and peppers. I'm more a meat and cheese girl! Mexican plate was good. I particularly like the hard shell taco. Also included a tamale, enchilada and stuffed pepper. The pepper wasn't cooked... More

We had lunch here. Great, cheap margaritas! Good salsa and chips. Food pretty good - had tacos and ponchos. Popular with Winter Texans.

This place has always been a stop for us on the trip across the border, but it seems that the food really did nothing to stand out. Vi had the Aztecs plate with shrimp. This is layers of corn tortillas, shrimp, and a couple of cheeses. In my opinion it should have been served with a garnish of jalapeños, lettuce... More

If you want nachos, this might be a decent choice. I had enchiladas and they were served cold. A friend had chicken mole and it was dry, thin, and flavorless. The other friend had nachos and had to order and extra side of beef as the meatvwas minimal. Positives: clean restrooms with soap, clean tables, filtered water, and guacamole was... More

Angel's is on the fourth floor, with a view that can't be seen well as they block the view with stuff and pilllars and tables and chairs. There are two doors on the ground level. The one by the "bar" is watched by a uniformed guy who never thinks to open the hard-to-open door up a steep little ramp for... More

Came over the bridge and down two blocks. It is on the 4th floor. The chips and salsa could have been a meal themselves. It is air conditioned and very clean. Great view of the city below.
