[HOU] Your favorite place for quail is . . .

danhole | Jun 4, 2008 08:07 AM

About 7 or so year ago my girlfriend took me to Guadalajara Hacienda off Katy Fwy for a bday dinner, and I had a mixed grill plate that included quail. Since then I have tried quail at many places,k and am always looking for new places to try it. It can be a real PITA to eat, but it is so good. So here are the places I've tried:

Guadalajara - good
El Tiempo on Washington - excellent
El Real off 1960 - excellent
Beaver's - stuffed with cream cheese and mushy mess, can't really taste quail
Tony's on Ella - very good
Texas Land and cattle off 249 - excellent
Pappasito's off 290 - dry and disappointing
There could be more but that is all I remember right now.

Places I want to try:
Goode Co. Taqueria
Pico's
Rainbow Lodge (during the summer they have take out so you can pre-order some for a reasonable price and take it home along with some sides. Going to do that this year!)

Any other recommendations?
