Happy hour, a few days ago with my bestie Kat, was at Cyclone Anaya's located at 1710 Durham Dr. I mentioned to her that I didn't want Mexican food that day, but even I can't resist their succulent queso with chunks of ground beef (or chunks of steak if you prefer to change it up). Not to mention, their happy hour menu is delicious, cheap, & very filling, and their skinny margaritas are known all around Houston.
Of course we had chips & salsa that is served upon seating...don't ever take chips & salsa for granted though, I've been to a Mexican restaurant which doesn't serve them (traumatizing experience, I was upset). Now, considering the fact that I didn't want Mexican food, leave it up to me to order something different --- spicy chicken wings! They came with a tasty, rich jalapeño ranch dipping sauce and it made me one happy kid! Kat also ordered ceviche for us (containing a fish of the day, shrimp, & octopus mixed with avocado, lime juice & tons of pico de gallo - waaaaay delish), and grilled fish tacos for herself (not pictured). We didn't even slightly debate over dessert...tres leches cake it was! Our server brought us the slice of cake with a side of whipped cream and two strawberries (sharing is caring, but not when it comes to strawberries...or Nutella). It was good, but I've definitely had a better & more moist tres leches cake before.
I have ALWAYS been a big fan of Cyclone Anaya's for their lunch, happy hour, & dinner specials, their food, service, and drinks. But one disappointment I've repeatedly came across here is that they do not carry any hot sauces besides Tabasco and their house salsa (that they bring out with the chips). My favorites of all time are Cholula & Valentina (Sriracha as well; all three are in my fridge & top my food daily for an extra zesty kick...) so I was a bit disappointed to be reminded, once again, that they didn't have either available.
Besides the 'zero hot sauce' availability issue, awesome meal!!! Enjoy the picture below & stop by either of their locations if you haven't been to one already!
Remember to always drink responsibly & to stay hungry!! ;)
