El Tiempo Cantina is known for its famous sizzling fajitas on hibachis heated with mesquite coals, tacos al carbon, grilled seafood, green sauce, crab nachos, crab enchiladas, and the very popular weekend Mexican breakfast staple, crepe-style pecan pancakes. Their potent, and often times referred to as ‘killer’ margaritas, have a cult following.
El Tiempo Cantina, with its romantic Hacienda atmosphere, defines the extraordinary flavors and culture of Tex-Mex cuisine. For more than 56 years, the Laurenzo’s have dedicated themselves to perfecting every aspect of what Houstonians have come to know as authentic Tex-Mex, served in a warm and welcoming atmosphere by gracious and attentive staff. Famous for the fajitas which a generation ago, a widowed mother of five, Ninfa Laurenzo, introduced to the city, and to the world. The city of Houston embraced her as their own and affectedly referred to her as Mama Ninfa. Her eldest son, Roland Laurenzo, and his son Domenic, continues her culinary traditions with legendary Fajitas, Margaritas and Mixed Grill Platters, which come with Rice and Beans and all the Trimmings. Add Super Jumbo Shrimp, Quail, Baby Back Ribs, Carnitas & Jalapeño Sausage Lobster, Chile Relleno, and Mushrooms, for a True Tex-Mex feast! .
