Warm atmosphere

El Tiempo Cantina defines the extraordinary flavors and culture of Tex Mex cuisine. Years ago, our family made fajitas popular in the United States. For the past 65 years, we have dedicated ourselves to perfecting what Houstonians know today as authentic Tex Mex cuisine.

Our ultimate dedication is to you – our customer. You’ll become part of our family as we care for you during your dining experience. At each El Tiempo location, we have vested much diligence and effort into developing our recipes and training our staff. We have set the standard high for our staff to take great care of our guests. Whether you’re craving fresh chicken breast fajitas with bell peppers and onions, or margaritas with fresh-squeezed lime juice, we’ll give you the best Tex Mex dining experience you’ll ever have! Stop by any of our El Tiempo locations and enjoy our famous fajitas and extensive Tex Mex cuisine. We look forward to meeting you soon!


Natural surrounding

Part of the El Tiempo Cantina family, we’re serving homestyle-cooking with an eclectic flare.

At Laurenzo’s Restaurant, we provide the best in food and customer service, and we go the extra mile to create a delightful dining experience. We only serve 100% natural grass fed beef, along with produce from our very own organic garden. With standards like these, it’s no surprise we have the best prime rib in Houston!

The Laurenzo’s Restaurant legacy has thrived for decades and will continue to serve as a fun and welcoming destination for years to come. With the strong dedication to quality ingrained from Tommy and Ninfa Laurenzo, our restaurateur family is excited to follow in the footsteps of the ones who taught us the importance of always giving the best of what we have. We look forward to welcoming you, your family, and friends into our home as you dine with us. As we always say, enjoy every moment!
