Houston Press' Description

The Southwest grill wood and stone d├ęcor gives this place a rustic, lodge-like feel, while the bar with TVs constantly blaring makes it feel like a sports bar. The second-floor location, especially the outdoor seating area, features a great view of the Galleria area, perfect for enjoying the cafe's famous margaritas. On the menu: innovative Mexican, Native American and Tex-Mex food (spinach and portabella quesadilla, banana burrito), along with soups (poblano chicken chowder), burgers, sandwiches, salads (blackened chicken and avocado) and pasta.

    Orange beso maragarita is the bomb! Fresh prickly pear juice at the bottom is delish! Tex mex food with variety. Great faijtas and chicken/mushroom burger! Meals are finished w/comp white chocolate tamales! Cute!
