Decent food but nothing exceptional. Staff friendly and provided good service and it's open 24 hours.

Being from Mexico, I know what to look for in a Mexican restaurant. This is the closest I've ever seen in Houston. Very tasteful, friendly service and ambience. Very reasonable prices. 24/7. Can you ask for more??

Now, this title gets thrown around a lot that it has lost some of its value when used to describe people, places, food, etc. Yet, this is the perfect description I can use to describe Ruchi's. After dancing for a long period of time, a friend and local from Houston said we had to come hear for the best tacos... More

This was not the best breakfast taco I have had by far but the tortilla as good. Friendly service and quick. Prices the same as a fast food taco and you get to sit and chill. Nice to know they are open 24/7. It is on par with a Mexican Denny's.

The food at Ruchi's isn't spectacular. It isn't bad either. But their green salsa is my crack cocaine. I can't even describe how much I love this stuff. I don't know if it's tomatillos that make it taste so special, but whatever it is, I can't get enough of it. That said, don't expect a great atmosphere at Ruchi's, and... More

We went there and the food was great, but unfortunately there were three men that were noisy and obviously very drunk, as they were being obnoxious and cursing very loudly. We switched seats across the restaurant to get away from them and we were clearly disturbed, but the waitresses were disturbed as well and they didn't do anything to try... More

The food quality is very good. It's open pretty late. It's a great option for a late night dinner. Clean, great service, affordable.

I got into Houston very late, and very hungry. I was staying at a hotel around the corner from Ruchi's and the desk clerk recommended it. I was skeptical, but she said it was really good, so I tried it. Man, am I glad I did. I had a huarache with stewed chicken, which was super cheap, and very filling.... More

Go here on weekends late , they are open 24 hours . And also have gone in my lunch hour with time to spare. They have good food, their beef fajita nachos are the best, and reasonably priced!
