Las Alamedas used to be a well known restaurant in Houston and I haven’t been there in a really really long time. They moved their location to Katy this past year and we thought we would see if it was as good as their reputation leads to. At first glance their menu seems to be a little more upscale and higher priced then most Mexican restaurants. They do have a happy hour so if you want to test the waters that would be a good time to try them.
We happened to go at lunch time since the prices are a little cheaper then dinner. They have a really nice patio outside, but the weather was a little warmer then we would have liked to sit out there. The initial impression that I got walking in seemed to be a very upscale establishment and the waiters have an almost attitude that you should be so lucky to have them serve you your meal.
Upon sitting down we where each given our own cup of salsa. I have to say it was tasty and served warm.
We wanted to try their margaritas so we got one frozen and one on the rocks. Shockingly they tasted the same. Sometimes you get a more watered down version when they are frozen.
Since they didn’t offer a fajita platter for 2 we got one plate of chicken and one of beef. The Fajitas de Pollo $15 (Marinated chicken fajitas, with onions and poblano slices. Guacamole, pico de gallo, charro beans, sour cream and flour or corn tortillas) was really good and very tender.
The Fajita Prime Sliced $16 (Mesquite grilled, sliced with onions and poblano peppers, served with guacamole, pico de gallo, charro beans and fresh hot flour tortillas) was also very good and tender.
Overall I would go back the quality is really good even though the prices seem high.
