Ate here twice during my 5 days in Houston. The Oaxaca food was outstanding, and loved both the standard and custom margaritas. Happening place with great atmosphere and first rate service. The churros with Oaxaca hot chocolate provided a perfect finale. Ole!

Was in Houston for a conference. Generally i only have time to eat at hotel's restaurant. Most times than not, the food is average. NOT IN THIS CASE. What a delight this place is... Excellent Mexican fare, with excellent service staff. Albeit a bit pricey
