“Nice Venue, So-so Food”
Review of Los Gallitos

Los Gallitos

Restaurant details
Reviewed 6 May 2016

Los Gallitos is housed in a large hacienda-style building with some separate rooms to accommodate large groups. There is outdoor dining. Service is adequate and friendly.

I want to like Gallitos but their food just isn't up to Tex-Mex that I've had before. It is also more expensive. The stuffed avocado was good, but the companion beef fajita taco was overcooked and too much food ($13.99). The "El Ray" (do they mean Rey?) has a cheese enchilada, tamale covered with chile con carne, and ground beef crispy taco ($12.99), all just okay. The refried beans seem processed. The beef fajita nachos are 6 for $9.99 or 9 for $12.99 -- $1.66/$1.44 per nacho! The nacho fajita meat was overcooked. The guac and sour cream accompanying the nachos was served on shredded lettuce to look like more, but instead made what little there was cling to the lettuce shreds.

The venue is nice, the food is not.

If you need a good lunch and live in the area, this place is pretty good for what you pay for. Great service, decent food, good price.

Good place for lunch. Service was fast and all tasted good. I had the taco salad and enjoyed it but would love to try dinner and some margaritas.

I have eaten here 3 times now, the first time it was by suggestion that our group try something new. Everyone was pleased with the quality of the food and especially the service staff. We went back about 2 months later and got the same great service and same tasty food. I decided to take my family here this past weekend and had an excellent meal along with awesome service. They have a wide menu selection and unlimited chips and salsa (both green and red) are delivered when they see you nearing the bottom.

A couple of years ago, I got a copy of the "Dining on the Cheap in Houston" Book and started checking out some of the not so well known spots around town. That brought me to the Los Gallitos location in Stafford, on Murphy Road. (They have another location in Sugar Land, on Highway 6.) I have to say, this one find, alone, was worth the price of the book. They've got excellent TexMex and an extensive menu. It's not fancy but it's not low-rent, either. You could take your wife, as I did, or your business partner, as I did, and have a conversation, or settle in to the bar and try some of their excellent margaritas. Plenty of parking and friendly, unpretentious service. No wine selection to speak of but good beers, including Negra Modelo!
