Houston Press' Description

This Mexican plate-lunch spot keeps accreting like some whimsical downtown coral reef. Savor the irrepressible Irma Galvan's burgeoning decor, politically wired clientele and enormously comforting mom-food: landmark cheese enchiladas, real mole, chiles rellenos, pork ribs in home-style tomatillo sauce. Don't miss Irma's lemonade. Lunch and breakfast only; weekdays only.

    Cute restaurant - good lunch! One of the most efficient lunch experiences I've had in downtown Houston. Was a bit pricier than your everyday TexMex place.

    Try the landmark cheese enchiladas, real mole, chiles rellenos, pork ribs in home-style tomatillo sauce and sip some of Irma's lemonade while you wait.
