Sad excuse for salsa – I went here expecting great food since many people RAVE about Estela's. However, the experience was not so great. The salsa tasted like pizza sauce (no zing at all), the chips were almost stale and my main enchilada dish was mediocre at best. The food was also way over priced. Very disappointed to say the least!

Worst ever Mexican food – Tried it twice and it was awful both times. The staff was really nice so I wanted to like it but it is just plain lousy food. It was reminiscent of the kind of "Mexican" food that is served in a school cafeteria. The salsa tasted like ketchup, the fajitas were floating in watery tasteless tomato sauce, and the cheese enchiladas tasted like they were made with sliced white american cheese from the package. On top of that, the prices were high for the quality. The fajitas were $17 and my dog ate it since I couldn't bear them. I just left the restaurant and came home to enjoy a frozen dinner instead.

Awful Customer Service – Save your money & go somewhere else. Awful service - would not honor the entertainment book coupon, 20 minute plus lapses without seeing waitress, took 3 attempts to get the bill correct. I'll never return to any Estela's and I am one that must have a REALLY bad experience to say that

Way overpriced happy hour drinks, good chips and salsa, underwhelming staff. – Not too bad if you don't mind paying $8.50 for a 6-8 ounce Margarita with no tequila in site. The (not so) happy hour allegedly included a free appetizer (the waitress said this was the reason for the high price). The appetizer was 4 shrimp shared by the whole table. To be fair, the entree was not too shabby as was the chips and salsa. Please be aware of the Dale Mabrey location's bar. Service was slow and unapologetic.

perfect mix of davis island and mexico – good quality mexican dishes, great happy hour with fishbowl margaritas. very nice patio, with good service and usually prompt seating. staff is mostly spanish but understands and communicates very well. would highly recommend, due to the very casual and laid-back davis island attitude.

Prompt service & good food – My wife & I had a very good experience dining at Estela's on S Dale Mabry. We were seated promptly outside (as we requested) and had chips & salsa in no time. Our orders came quickly thereafter (chicken quesadilla & enchiladas), which were also very good. While not the best Mexican food we've ever had, the service & quality were worthy of a second visit. NOTE: though we were served alcohol while seated outside, we later learned that they don't have a license to serve alcoholic beverages outdoors .... our server's inadvertent mistake ... so, bear this in mind when sitting outside!

Poor Service overshadows good food – It is really a shame that such good Mexican food is packaged with such poor service. The last 2 times we went to Estela's, they messed up our orders. In addition, I have had an easier time flagging down a cabbie in NY than getting a server's attention at this place. Just having a location on the trendy Davis Island doesn't isn't enough to overcome the rest. If they straightened out the service, I would gladly return and recommend it to others.

It is also important to note that the second Estela's on S. Dale Mabry is far and away superior in it's customer service. My advice is that if you want great Mexican food and great service, go to Estela's on S. Dale Mabry.
