question about Mexican and Tex-mex in Houston

coming to Houston | Sep 17, 2003 04:46 PM

Hello

I have done a lot of research on this board and have a question about tex-mex and mexican in Houston:

Tex-Mex:
It seems the consensus on this board for tex-mex is Jalapenos, Chuy's, and El Tiempo Cantina (for fajitas), my question is this: I've been to Chuy's and liked the enchiladas, so are these other two restaurants head and shoulders better than chuy's? Or is Chuy's a good representative of tex-mex in Houston? Are there other good tex-mex places that I should sample, that are head and shoulers better than chuy's?

Mexican:
I've seen Tampico, Otilia, El Hid, Ninfa on Navigation, Pico, Hugos, and Tila's for Mexican food reccommended, are these the good mexican restaurants in Houston, or are they tex-mex? Are there any other favorite mexican places that are better than the above?

thanks!
