Houston Mexican Restaurants

Houston has many authentic, traditional and Tex-Mex Mexican restaurants.

There are great families who have been hard at work for decades feeding Houstonites great Mexican fare.  Some of our favorites at…

El Tiempo – Multiple locations in Houston.  My favorite is their Washington Avenue location where the beef fajitas are the best in Houston.  Service is great as well.  5602 Washington Ave, Houston, TX 77007  (713) 681-3645

Armondos – Since 1978, Armando Palacios’ long-time eatery—fashioned after 1920s Mexico City. Try the famous fresh-lime juice margaritas, delicious queso flameado and signature fajitas. 2630 Westheimer, Houston, Texas 77098  713 520.1738

Hugo’s – 3728, 1600 Westheimer Rd, Houston, TX 77006  (713) 524-7744

Pappasito’s – Multiple locations in and around Houston, the Pappas family hit it big with Mexican fare.  Great fajitas, enchiladas and everything in between.  My personal fav other than beef fajitas is their seafood enchiladas.  Almost too rich in flavor to eat, but I push thru!

Lupe’s Tortilla – Multiple locations in Houston.  Great food and service!  I could eat just their beans served with chips and be happy!  15801 Southwest Fwy, Sugar Land, TX 77478  (281) 265-7500

The Original Ninfa’s on Navigation – This is it for Mexican food, but if you live inside the loop on the east side, it is the place to go.  2704 Navigation Blvd, Houston, TX 77003   (713) 228-1175

Chuy’s – Multiple Houston Locations – Gotta try the Elvis Presley Platter.  You will end up taking home their grean sauce by the gallon.  Yes, it is that good.
