Irma's Southwest Grill


  • 82
A staple of the Downtown food scene for over 17 years, Irma's Southwest grill is a casually elegant restaurant and recipient of a 2008 James Beard Award. A menu showcasing some of the best Mexican cuisine north of the border includes standout dishes like carne guisada, pork carnitas and chile relleno, as well as dishes incorporating exotic wild Texas game ― keep an eye out for the chalkboard specials. The vibe is intimate and quiet with dim lighting, and Irma's famous strawberry lemonade is a must-try.
