Restaurant Reviews Irmas Restaurant Houston Tx

Walking into Irma’s Restaurant…is like walking into a garage sale. The shelves are completely filled with dusty knickknacks…old dolls…funky lamps and statues…packed so tight…it seems impossible to add another item.

The walls are not much different. Beer signs…bumper stickers…old newspaper articles…pictures and expired license plates are tacked one over the other. There are even items tied to string and suspended from the ceiling.

The last things you would expect to find in this flea-market setting…are tables…chairs… wait staff and good food. However…Houstonians who work or live downtown…have been flocking to this restaurant for years…to enjoy authentic Mexican breakfasts and lunches.

Once you adjust to the “Sanford and Son” decor…you get another surprise…Irma’s has no menu. Your waitress…will quickly blurt out a few specials of the day…and your role is to try and tune out the background noise of this busy setting…comprehend what she is saying…and make a selection…without seeing anything…including the price of the grub.

Okay…so now…once you have ordered… When the food arrives…it has a pretty darn good – ample portions of home-style Mexican cuisine. Pretty much anything…that comes to your table will earn “thumbs-up” reviews!

With favorites like chicken-stuffed zucchini…lightly breaded…fried and covered with diced tomatoes and melted cheese…over-stuffed pork enchiladas…is full of traditional flavors. Yum…yum! Or you can try their…chicken stuffed with spinach…and covered in vegetables and melted cheese. Hmmm… Can you feel your taste buds having a spasm? Ummm? Do you think that it is possible to have an orgasm with food? If you can…I would have to rate the “taste” meter off the charts!

You’re definitely sure to find something…to fill you up with those sweet flavors of Mexican goodness. Also…one more thing…I forgot the best part. My dip stick is a little low…tonight! Don’t forget to wash everything down…with Irma’s signature lemonade.

With no prices listed…you might be surprised by the bill. Let’s see…my suggestion… Bring a wad of cash…a credit card with a large available credit line…or a date…who enjoys showing off their bank account!

If all else fails…take a course in “Mental Telepathy”…so you can read the menu that’s in their head.

If you want to give this restaurant a try…why not take a few of your homies with you and hop over for lunch. A lunch dish and nonalcoholic drink…comes out to be about $18-$20 (plus tip)… It’s a little pricey…for a city…that is filled with a generous supply of superb Mexican restaurants. But…it is worth every penny!

Let’s not forget…that Irma’s stays busy for a reason. People aren’t patronizing this restaurant…just to have a vacuum hose suck their pants clean! However…a word of caution…if you have never eaten at this restaurant before…expect a few surprises.
