Why do we keep going back? – Again, we keep going back b/c we just want to remind ourselves why we don't go there. Food is terrible. My hubby never complains about anything. He's got a stomach of steel, but he couldn't stand to be in this place more than a half hour. The tables were sticky as were the greasy menus. Ewww.
I've never tasted mexican food this terrible.
My hubby's boss says the same thing. The three times he's been there , he always vowes will be his last times there. Unfortunately for him, this is the place that his clients bring him to (believe me - he's not paying, the clients pay for the meal.)
I don't recommend this place to even my enemy.
WOW! By far the worst tex-mex i have ever had! – I truly love mexican food, but andy's takes the cake on bad food all around.. i ordered fajitas, they looked microwaved and i couldnt even chew my food so i didnt eat.. lol. My girlfriend and her friends food was really salty and looked microwaved as well.. I was fooled by the other reviews.. they were nice enough to take the fajitas off our bill and the waitress was nice. thats about the only good thing i can truly say about this cafe.
love, love, love andy's – wonderful food. i dont know what it is but even despite the fact that i've been to some of the best mexican places in houston i find that this one keeps me coming back to order my usual cheese enchiladas. i love them, very addictive. the service is also great- wonderful ladies- treat them right. and the atmosphere is welcoming and relaxed. modest place, not for the snooty.
Cheap and funky, this 24-hour Tex-Mex diner is a Heights original. – In Short
Peopled by cash-strapped bohos, Hispanic families and off-duty HPD officers, Andy's still stands proud as a cheap, reliable Tex-Mex joint. There's lots of friendly late-night hubbub, always a parade of personalities (look for local band members after the clubs close). The Tex-Mex fare is ordinary at best, but denizens don't seem to care. The hearty blue-plate menu includes Mexican breakfasts.
Overrated – Totally overrated, if that's possible for a place like this. Had a milanesa, and it was inedible. Cheap, and it tastes like it.
I love andy's – When I moved from Houston, one of the things I missed most was not being able to go to Andy's at 3 am to get mexican food. Andy's does mexican food the way it should be done.
NOT TOO BAD – Ok, it's not the best mexican fare in town, but hey, what can you expect for $3.50. At Andy's you can expect a crispy taco, tostada, cheese enchalada, beans and rice. And fast service too. I can't say it's the best but it has to be the cheapest. And ya gotta love a place in the Heights that's open 24 hours a day.
All night every night – This is the place to go at 3 in the morning. The flour tortillas are always fresh, the fries are homecut, and the bistec ala mexicana is my favorite dish of comfort food. Also a good jukebox and sometimes surreal people.
Best Dive Resteraunt – I really like this place for some reason. Maybe it's because it's in the Heights, it's cheap, good food, fun atmosphere and I can take anyone there and they seem to really enjoy it. The waitresses are awesome and so so so polite.
Comfort Food – Everytime I go there I get one thing, Columbian Enchiladas (which are cheese enchiladas with a fried egg on top) ala carte and a small strawberry soda. I don't know what it is about this combination, but there are times when nothing else will do but a super gooey cheeze enchilada. I love to sit in the smoking section even though I am a non-smoker. It is more pleasant there and they have this cool red light. I also only go late night, it addsto the charm.
