Breakfasts are THE best – We have been coming here for several years - breakfast only. I've had dinner items, which aren't as good and to some degree, worthy of the criticisms listed. Breakfast waitstaff is friendly, efficient, and food is fresh, fast and ample servings. Love the soup, chips and salsa. It is a semi-weekly ritual for us. Huevos a la Mexicana & Ham and Spinach omlette are winners, among others. Enjoy, worth the trip.
Disappointed with Spanish Flowers – Had dinner at Spanish Flowers on June 30, 2011. The wait staff was very friendly and efficient. While I enjoyed the chips, dip and soup, the Chile Relleno was inedible. The ground beef was ground up gristle which was gooey and slimey to boot. Do not order this item, ever!
great late night eatery – good food, portions small, service usually good
Great Customer Service!!! – We were searching for late night food and happened to come across this place. Although we didn't go to the place late that night we went the next day for lunch. This place was very impressive. The service was great and the people were on point. We didn't even have to ask for anything because they were so attentive. I love the fact that they make their tortillas from scratch, very authentic. The decorations were great as well. I have to say that I was taken back by this restaurant. I do recommend this restaurant to anyone if you really want good food and good service.. Oh one more thing when we left all the employees even the one's that were cooking waved good bye. I felt like a movie star!!!
Horrible – We decided to have dinner here because of the hype and awards given to this place. Extremely disappointing to say the least. The food was microwaved and flavorless, the salsa was from a can, and the service was just rude. We are never going back. I regret taking the word of the positve internet reviews on this one. If you haven't been, you're not missing out on anything. Go to a taqueria and you'll get better food and service.
Why – Spanish Flowers Houston Tx at 12.41 am
What in the world are you thinking, Turning a long time customer away based on the thought that your little 24 hour diner (mexican food) is some how a five star restaurant, Mary you serve Nachos and Alcoholic beverages. When someone. anyone has driven to your restaurtant ( in my case from Clear Lake ) you should open your doors and serve them. You do not turn them away, and for what your asking, I was not wearing a "shirt". Mary it may not have not been a " shirt" to you, but dear it covered all that needed to be covered.
Great Late Night Eatery! – Spanish Flowers is such an excellent late night eatery. The tortillas are made fresh for your order.
The salsa is fresh and I like that you can taste the cilantro in it.
After your order is placed, you get a small cup of potato soup with a beef and tomato base.
The tea gets refilled promptly and is always fresh.
The queso is a good consistency and delicious!
I usually get the fajitas. They are always moist, tender, and sizzling.I usually am not big on Spanish rice, but the rice here is good. I ordered the Mexican chocolate once and I can tell you that is not hand made. It tastes like a powder mix.
One thing that aggravates me is that the servers do not write down your drink or appetizer order. They always forget something here. They do write down the main order but I do not like when I order a Pina Colada and get my food before my drink.
This place is clean, the restrooms included. There have been a few times where my dining experience was ruined by the condition of the restroom alone. Not here.
The parking lot is well lit. I saw someone mention a guard. Truth be told, I have never seen one. Is there really supposed to be one? lol
All in all, Spanish Flowers is inviting. The decoration lends to the atmosphere. Of course, I am partial to the Frida Kahlo wall hanging in the left room. The prices do seem to have gone up. I guess it is the economy, because though the food is good.. the quality did not go up.
It is very kid friendly. My best friend and I often bring our kids here and have never had a problem.
Too much hype and not enough substance – I've been to Spanish Flowers several times and it just seems to be getting worse!!! The service is horrible; the food is average to below average. Grease is a key ingredient at this joint; everything is greasy. The chips were stone cold, the salsa was bland and the queso was runny. Now on to the meal, my taco broke through the shell immediately when I picked it up turning my plate into a taco salad; the meat was flavorful. The enchiladas were meagerly stuffed with cheese and lukewarm when the arrived. Service was very poor; we had to send search parties out looking for him. Meanwhile the other servers in the room acted extremely put out by our requesting help from them. Then the bill came and for what we were served, it was way over priced. You?re taking you life into your own hands when getting out of your car, the guard that was supposed to be there wasn?t two out of three trips. I get trapped into going because they do such a good marketing job, and friends and guest that haven?t been want to go. I try to discourage them, but in the end accommodate their wishes. Then I have to listen to them complain for the balance of the evening. After my last visit I just refuse to go.
HIGH QUALITY – EVERYTIME I GO TO SPANISH FLOWERS I ORDER THE FLAN BEFORE THE REST OF MY FOOD TO MAKE SURE I HAVE ENOUGH ROOM!! THE FIJITAS COME WITH SUSAGE QUAIL BEEF AND CHICKEN PEPPERS ONIONS AND MUCH MORE!! TO DRINK I RECCOMEND THE STRAWBERRY LEMONADE, GREAT SERVICE, THE SERVERS ALL STOP BY TO CHECK ON THE TABLES SO YOU ARE NEVER WAITING LONG!!
Excellent – I love this place. Always clean, staff is friendly, and the food is great! If you've never been there, try it and you'll be hooked!!!
