Regular place for lunch for us, but I wouldn't go out of my way to eat there. People are nice but food is just ok.

My husband happened to come across this place, and I must say we both enjoyed our visit there. It was buzzin, full with young families too. The server was polite and courteous, we ordered a couple of margaritas. ( beware they were quite strong). I ordered the mole poblano, my other half ordered the Chile relleno. These were a couple...

Not great, but consistent. Open 24 hours. AC can freeze you out at certain tables so feel free to change tables. Service can be great or terrible. Tortilla chips and salsa are good. Margaritas excellent. Great menu. Breakfast items are really good. Great pricing on food and drinks before 7pm. A tradition in the Heights area.

The menu reads of delicious menu items such as the stuffed avocado....so I order it....the description read beautifully but what I received was a... More

We've gone here for years but it's not what it used to be. The hot sauce is fresh and really good but all of the tortillas were stale. We had to ask three times to get corn tortillas, which had no flavor at all. They wouldn't substitute on the kids menu which is very limited. Service is fast though.

The worst Mexican food I've had in a long time, last visit was over 8 years ago and it was bad back then. Tried again after 8 years, just horrible. Tortillas were factory tortillas, don't let the tortilla warmer fool you when you walk in...never again.

Went to Spanish Flowers to celebrate my ?? year birthday with my husband and two friends. The atmosphere is festive. The restaurant is clean. Our waiter was excellent. All wait staff wears white shirts/blouses and black pants. Very neat. I had the Mole Enchiladas which were quite good. My husband had the carnitas which were delicious but a bit dry.... More

Service was average and food was just okay. Although Margarita was flavorful. I was not impressed with the quality of the food. Fajita meet was chewy. The server whispered/mumbled & barely spoke any English. I'd try another venue next time. No need to go back.

We went with a group of about 25. It was a big place to be able to accommodate us. The service was slow but worth the wait. Chips and salsa were good. Margaritas were great but expensive. Two of us split the Spanish Flower dinner and had plenty to eat. Everyone who ate at our large table liked their food.... More

This restaurant is definitely authentic. I wasn't fond of their salsa. We had fajitas and it took over 20 minutes to get them. In Texas, sangria margaritas are popular and they didn't even have sangria! That's the must for me. The atmosphere was bright and festive. Outdoors not anything worth looking at.
