I am from Austin, and I am meeting a close friend who is a former Austinite for a short visit in Houston. She now lives in Albany, NY, and is jonesing for Mexican and bbq. What are some good bets to take her to in Houston? She doesn't eat pork and is allergic to poultry, so a bbq place that serves beef ribs would be a plus. Otherwise, brisket would suffice. I've read that Houston doesn't have excellent bbq, but I know she's going to want some regardless. Oh, and we'll be in North Houston, but we will have a car.
