The food could not be worse. Even if they clean the scum off the air vents over the tables and invest in some quality servers, Andys cannot redeem the gross food items they put in front of me on my first/last visit.\r

Went to eat their with some friends who recommended it... I can't imagine why. Habit, I suppose?

I ordered a gordita which turned out to be very bland. I had the opportunity to try some other dishes, and they were all extremely poor examples of "tex-mex," or even just "tex." The tacos tasted like they were made from an Ortega taco kit, and the burrito was filled with Dinty Moore's Beef Stew. (I kid you not, I grew up on the stuff and could recognize the taste anywhere.)

The experience was not entirely bad; the staff was very attentive and the register operator (the owner, or a relative I assume) was congenial. However, this establishment fails in its primary mission of serving food you'd want to pay money for.

It is absolutely baffling to me why my friends STILL recommend this place, given the large number of excellent Mexican restaurants in Houston at all price ranges. Honestly, you could buy better food from a greasy taco truck and save money while you're at it. Thumbs down all around.

Pros: Friendly waitstaff, 24/7

Cons: The food is God-awful.

I absolutely love the warm, almost creamy salsa! Even though I go in to order pancakes, I usually alternate bites of salsa/chip and pancake. The BLT is wonderfully crispy and excellent if you ask for avocado to be added in. The pancakes are delightfully fluffy and fulfilling for late-night cravings.

Have been here a number of times and have not been overly impressed. Service was slow and the food nothing more than average. I ordered huevos rancheros and they were overcooked and the salsa tasteless. I doubt I will go back.

Finally went there a few months ago after moving to the area and reading several short articles about the resturant but was supremely disappointed. The place definitely has a homey feel to it, by no means spectacular but comforting. Very nice waitress and hostess. I ordered fajitas and my fiance ordered cheese enchiladas. The cheese enchiladas had a peculiar aftertaste and my fajitas were disappointing. The fajitas came as a fairly dry piece of meat with some peppers and onions on the side with what looked like a slice of quasi-melted cheese on top. The meat was dry and had hardly any flavor. Making good/great enchiladas and fajitas would seem to be a prerequisite for a mexican resturant. The ideal image of Andy's is great. Has been in the neighborhood a long time, family run, open 24 hours but the food is very disappointing.

I truly love mexican food, but andy's takes the cake on bad food all around.. i ordered fajitas, they looked microwaved and i couldnt even chew my food so i didnt eat.. lol. My girlfriend and her friends food was really salty and looked microwaved as well.. I was fooled by the other reviews.. they were nice enough to take the fajitas off our bill and the waitress was nice. thats about the only good thing i can truly say about this cafe.

wonderful food. i dont know what it is but even despite the fact that i've been to some of the best mexican places in houston i find that this one keeps me coming back to order my usual cheese enchiladas. i love them, very addictive. the service is also great- wonderful ladies- treat them right. and the atmosphere is welcoming and relaxed. modest place, not for the snooty.

Pros: great food, service, prcie

Cons: parking at peak times, restrooms are small, salsa isn't great

Totally overrated, if that's possible for a place like this. Had a milanesa, and it was inedible. Cheap, and it tastes like it.

When I moved from Houston, one of the things I missed most was not being able to go to Andy's at 3 am to get mexican food. Andy's does mexican food the way it should be done.

Pros: food, service

Ok, it's not the best mexican fare in town, but hey, what can you expect for $3.50. At Andy's you can expect a crispy taco, tostada, cheese enchalada, beans and rice. And fast service too. I can't say it's the best but it has to be the cheapest. And ya gotta love a place in the Heights that's open 24 hours a day.

Pros: price, hours

This is the place to go at 3 in the morning. The flour tortillas are always fresh, the fries are homecut, and the bistec ala mexicana is my favorite dish of comfort food. Also a good jukebox and sometimes surreal people.

Pros: Good breakfasts, 24 Hours, Fine Juke

Cons: Awful coffee, Teensy Restroom

I really like this place for some reason. Maybe it's because it's in the Heights, it's cheap, good food, fun atmosphere and I can take anyone there and they seem to really enjoy it. The waitresses are awesome and so so so polite.

Everytime I go there I get one thing, Columbian Enchiladas (which are cheese enchiladas with a fried egg on top) ala carte and a small strawberry soda. I don't know what it is about this combination, but there are times when nothing else will do but a super gooey cheeze enchilada. I love to sit in the smoking section even though I am a non-smoker. It is more pleasant there and they have this cool red light. I also only go late night, it addsto the charm.
