New Owner – Drive from the Clear Lake area to eat there and the food is still worth the drive but there is a new owner who has tweaked some of the recipes and not for the better. Use to love the salted cod but avoid it because the new recipe is not very good.
authentic puerto rican food! – This place is small but good things come in small packages!
All of the food here is absolutely delicious but the carne frita is my favorite! This place has won tons of Marvin Zindler awards.
The atmosphere makes you feel like you're back at home in Puerto Rico :)
I would highly recommend this place to everyone!
Best food from La Isla – Don Teo and Doña Carmen make you feel like you are back home.
No matter what you select from the menu, the food is wonderful and tasty.
Prices have gone up, food's still good – Expect to pay around $18 for food and a drink. It's still tasty, but probably not worth the price.
Mofongo y Chuleta, Ay mama! – This place is awesome, i'm from Ecuador and the food is similar to ours but this place takes all on taste. Teo is adorable, and the wife is a doll. The chuletas could not of been done better, the Mofongo is finger lickingly good. Though this place is unformal and small it brings the ambience of being and eating at home. The price is right for the portion of food I truly recommend this place better than Isla Coqui(yuk). Mark my word GUARANTEED you will leave satisfied, I come from Richmond/Rosneberg for this almost every weekend.
Best Puetorican Food – My husband took me there about 1year ago, I love it!! I work close to there now, I eat there once a week, my favorite POLLO GUISADO! people are so friendly they make you feel like home.
worst puerto rican food ever – the rice was under cooked the beans were over cooked the carne frita was ok and the tostones were perfect. the decor of this place reminds me of some of the small resturants u see in puerto rico but come on we are in texas. they didnt even have arroz con gandulez as a part of their menu or pastelles so imho as far as authenic there are better places.... i lived en la isla for 20 years and tex-chick had the worst puerto rican food i have ever had. ISLA COQUI is so much better and a better menu
Best Puerto Rican food in town!!!! – words can explain the authenticity of the Puerto Rican food that is served at Tex Chick. Awesome ambience and food. Highly recommended for anyone that is looking for Puerto Rican food.
Deffinetly worth the Trip! Yes it is a hole in the wall place, but for this boricua it really did take me back! The Food was great! in One day we tried the Mofonfo and Carne Frita, Pollo Guizado, arroz con gandules, pastels and Flan! It was just like Abuela makes! and The Prices were very reasonable! its nothing fancy, but Like I said Deffintely worth the trip!
reminds me living in PR – the food is great! if you are wanting a little taste of the island you gotta go to tex-chick. the only thing its missing is the carribean out the front door.
