My wife and I stopped in for lunch and had great enchiladas and tacos al carbon, but the food is pretty expensive! Love the old ambience- old traditional Mexican restaurant!!

The restaurant ambiance was a little off putting, kind of a dark patio with Christmas lights, but don’t let that fool you, it is very comfortable and it clearly appeals to the neighborhood professionals who were there in two very large groups. The service was good but for some reason they did not have red wine by the glass. My... More

My uncle loves this place and tells stories about how it has been around forever. I ate here and the food is okay. I can tell you there are so many options for Mexican in Houston that it is hard to return here. No complaints but it was really old school Tex-Mex.

Good here...usually on Sundays...many other place closed on Sundays. They have their own take on food and each place I have tried was very good. Their Margaritas are very good. Limit of two per person though...Cozy inside with nice windows.

We try to eat hear every time we are in Houston. They have great old fashioned chili, cheese and onion enchiladas. Margaritas are exceptional. The small guacamole is like a large anywhere else. An unusual but great dish on the menu is fried chicken. Nice service with parking across the street. Don't let the appearance fool you, Spanish Village is... More

You have to buy food to get one, but the food is good, the margaritas are great, and the ambience is unbeatable. Get the frozen, even if you usually get rocks. It's one of the oldest restaurants in town. It's completely traditional Tex-mex. The carnitas are incredible, the tamales are fluffy, and the salsa has a solid bite. It's been... More

The owner was very rude. He seemed to single my friend and I out. If I could file a discrimination lawsuit I would. Trust me he does not want African Americans at his business so save your money and go to a taco stand! This place is nasty and overpriced. I will never return

My family, friends and I have eaten here since the 1960's at this Spanish restaurant that also sells Mexican food. The food is tasty, the atmosphere homey, the family owners kind and friendly (the check says "See you next week"), the owner brother/sister team remember repeat visitors and treat older customers with respect and attention. Birthday celebrants might get their... More

There's something very appealing to me about a Tex-Mex joint that makes no excuses and doesn't try to be anything else. I had heard of Spanish Village for years but it's located in an area of town where I don't generally go, so I've never made a special trip to try it out until today.....in Houston you can just about...

I was there last night with a friend and we were meeting for a drink. Neither of us were really hungry. We ordered our first drink, a margarita, and the waitress came back and asked us if we were ready order, so we said we needed a few more minutes. a few moments later an old lady came by and... More
