A rustic hacienda in earth tones, and a refined menu, define this grill and margarita bar owned by Houston’s First Family of Tex-Mex, the Laurenzo’s. Mama Ninfa Laurenzo, their matriarch, introduce sizzling fajitas to the world in 1977.
El Tiempo 1308 Cantina's menu features classics like tacos, tamales, chalupas, enchiladas and combo plates while house specialties involve the mesquite-wood fire grill for savory fajitas, quail, baby back ribs, jalapeño sausage, and fresh fish and spicy bacon-wrapped shrimp.
The full bar serves premium tequilas, fresh made margaritas and pitchers of brandy-laden sangria.
El Tiempo 1308 Cantina is open for lunch and dinner daily, along with breakfast on Sundays from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
