With so many restaurants boasting they serve the best Mexican food in town, it is difficult for the connoisseur to decide which is the best.
Luna’s Mexican Restaurant is a favorite for local community organizations to gather and have lunch while discussing the issues that move and shake us. The Kiwanis Club meets there regularly, as do other civic groups. Friends of Goose Creek CISD celebrated the passing of its $335 million bond in May at Luna’s.
Why do they choose Luna’s so often? One reason has to be the buffet served up for such events. At a recent luncheon a group of community leaders were invited to talk about how the Baytown YMCA is still providing services despite no building to a scrumptious buffet.
It is a Mexican food lover’s dream! First, you start out with a warm tortilla. Get one or two, depending upon your appetite level at the moment. Work your way toward the refried beans and Mexican rice. Always get a good scoop of this.
While the fajitas are delicious, having a great side dish makes it 10 times better. To fill out your plate, get some chicken quesadillas or some beef changitos. Of course, choose between beef or chicken fajita meat or get both. And top it all off with some sour cream, pico de gallo and guacamole.
A member of Luna’s wait staff is always happy to serve you as you move down the buffet line and will gladly fill your drink as well whether it is a soda or alcohol (and no, I did not drink while doing this review. I never drink on duty).
While Luna’s can be a great place to have lunch or dinner with your spouse, best friend or family, it is also accommodating for those seeking a place for big groups in an intimate setting.
If you want to bring the party to your place, Luna’s offers catering services as well. You can get Buffalo wings, meatballs in barbecue sauce, a fried zucchini/mushroom/cheese stick combo, fried or boiled shrimp. There are Mexican buffet-style packages with everything from fajitas, cheese enchiladas, tamales, Chile con queso, or grilled chicken breasts. There are American-style buffet packages, too, with brisket and sausage combos, brisket and pork ribs combos, chicken fried steak, chicken Florentine, steak and shrimp, lasagna or get a vegetarian delight. Party trays are available as well. Just get in touch with Luna’s private room coordinator at 281-421-5622.
Yes, there are many Mexican restaurants in town. And they are mostly great places to eat. But, if you like atmosphere integrated with Mexican dining for large groups or just you and them, give Luna’s a try. They not only have locations in Baytown, but also Texas City and Friendswood.
Luna’s is open from 11 a.m.to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and from 11 a.m. to midnight on Fridays. They are also open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sundays. The restaurant’s number is 281-421-5661.
