I'm a displaced Houstonian living up in Boston, where eating Tex mex is the triumph of optimism over experience. My husband, from Dallas, and I try to assuage our tex mex withdrawal whenever we're anywhere near home.
He's going to be in Houston to give a talk at the medical center, and since I went to Rice, was asking me for tex mex recommendations. If he had a car , I'd steer him to Ninfa's navigation. Unfortunately he won't have a car, so he'd like to keep it within a short cab ride, and I'm coming up dry. It doesn't have to be fabulous or terribly chow-worthy- anything will be better than what we get up here. Just some decent salsa and a good margarita.
The closest places I can think of is Pappasitos on Richmond- does anyone have a better or closer suggestion?
