We are originally from Denver, but for decades we have lived in Houston. The only thing we don't miss in Denver is Mexican food. But FINALLY we came across Tia Maria's! We both had the best chile rellenos that we have had in years: spicy, large poblanos filled with queso Oaxaca and beautifully fried. The batter was not thick and gummy or greasy. The green chile sauce was spicy and flavorful.
The rest of the menu calls us back. The server said the owners are from Zacatecas, so there is a authentic tradition behind the operation.
This is the best Mexican restaurant in the whole metro area. They recognize me when I come in and are always friendly. The Green Hornitas margaritas are to die for. Strong, not too sweet just all around perfection. I've yet to have a dish here I didn't like.
Next time you are carving Mexican head to Tia Maria's!!
Arrived around noon .1st time here and from start to finish the service was great . I had a smothered bean burrito which was real tasty & a small menudo. And Mexican bread. a few bites into the menudo and something about it was not very pleasing to me I told our waitress and she took it off our bill without hesitation and asked if i wanted something else instead. then the owner gave me a card for a free one on a return visit . All were super nice about it . When I first looked at the menu I thought the prices were a little high compared to mexican restaurants on the south side of town but after putting it all together , service , food and being so close to home it was all okay .yes I will return earlier next time for breakfast I'm looking forward to having some of their pork green Chile with some eggs , and beans , and potatoes . Thx .again !
I ate my first meal here 15 years ago. It was a 5 star meal to me but there wasn't that much competition back then. Sure, now another place could have a dish, a salsa, or a side that is more to your liking. but I have found the total package at Tia Maria's to be unbeatable. And i could swear that the young ladies that seated and served us today have been there the whole time. My "take company to dinner" place no matter how sophisticated their Mexican palate may be.
