Maybe I went on the wrong night – I have to assume the food was off the night I went because my boyfriend and I thought it was TERRIBLE. Everything was covered in cheap cheese, and much too overpriced compared to other mexican restaurants around the area. The service was very good, and our glasses never did get close to empty. It did take a long time for our food to come out, and we were more than disappointed. We will never eat here again, and are surprised it actually receives decent business. Maybe we should have taken advice from other reviewers and tried the alcohol. Maybe then it would have made the food eatable, slightly.
Aye, Yay, Yay – This was our first visit to Leila's on Egret Blvd, just off of Nasa Road. First let me start with the hot sauce and chips; they were mind-melting good! The hot sauce has a hint of black beans, mixed with fresh tomatoes, cilantro, chili, and I'm not sure what else. The sauce is HOT, but so delicious, I could not stop eating it. My fiance tried the beef tampiquena with eggs; she loved it so much that she started singing along to all the Mexican songs playing on the restaurant stereo. I opted for "The Challenger" combinaiton plate, which had three different enchiladas, a chili con queso puff, a beef taco, followed by guacamole, rice and beans. My only little suggestion would be to put more guacamole on the combination plates; I only got a teasppon full of guacamole. Other than that, I could find no flaws or suggestions for improvement. The service was absolutely excellent; whenever my glass of tea hit the halfway mark, it was immediately refilled. While we did not "dance to the margaritas" on this visit, the margs. being served next to us looked stunning. Next time we visit, we'll be evaluatating those delicious looking margaritas as well. They make them in every possible flavor and variety here, and I cannot wait to try them on the next visit. And yes, by declaring an eminent "next visit", I am stating that Leila's is worth of many more return trips. Leila's has got it's game face on, and has their act down to a science. This is Tex-Mex heaven here in the Webster Clear Lake area. Heck, it's just Mexican food heaven, period.
