How This Cantina Changed the Houston Fajita Game

Posted on 03 November 2016

Roland Laurenzo and his sons opened up the first El Tiempo Cantina on Richmond avenue back in 1998. Their attention to quality and friendliness makes them unlike any other restaurant. They strive to satisfy their customers with a “100% Guarantee Policy” which guarantees completely satisfaction or your money back. At El Tiempo, they make every ingredient from scratch. From their tortillas to salad dressings, everything is hand made from family recipes. Their passion for authentic food coupled with their dedication to customer service is what makes this place a Houston favorite.


If you’re like us, there is nothing better than a sizzling plate of juicy fajitas. There is no better place than El Tiempo Cantina to change your fajita experience for the better. For starters, if you go any day before 3 pm they have a lunch special, where you can get a half pound of beef/chicken fajitas for $22.59. Great quality and great prices, what beats that? These are seriously the juiciest ones in Houston, served with all the fixings you want in a fajita. It comes on a sizzling hot platter on top of a bed of grilled onions, with extra grease to dip – the main key that sets apart their fajitas. Their tortillas are made fresh in house and are the perfect accessory to the meat. Pair this with a margarita or two and you’ll be feeling good. Come in with friends, family, or a date – El Tiempo is perfect for any occasion.
