El Tiempo Cantina – Our Search for Houston’s Best Restaurants for Kids!
Location: 1308 Montrose Blvd Houston 77019
Age Appropriate: All ages!
With family visiting us from out of state, we had to choose a Tex-Mex restaurant! There are so many good ones in Houston, it is hard to choose! We have already reviewed Lupe Tortilla, El Real and even Torchy’s Tacos… this week we went with a classic: El Tiempo. They have several locations and we chose the one on Montrose. It was our first time there and we loved it.
At the front, they have a bar area with beautiful beams on the ceiling. Even with every table taken, the noise level in the restaurant was not too loud. Their bathroom is well equipped for children.
I have to give big kuddos to our wonderfully patient and efficient waiter, Roberto. He zigzagged through the tables like a slalomer and was present for us without being overbearring.
As busy as it was, service was quick and the order for our table of 5 was the right on and we even got the check with dessert so we could leave a bit sooner since my son was falling asleep.
My son, who had his own kid menu, ordered the beef fajitas and ate 3 full fajitas! The margaritas were also great and this time we saved room for dessert: their tres leches was beautiful and tasty.
See you next week for another culinary adventure!
