My family and I come to Houston every year to visit my wife's family there, and I try to hit all the types of restaurants that I can't really find here in Germany (where I live). These are mainly Mexican, Tex Mex, BBQ and anything South American. I have searched here on Chowhound for a good review of Tex Mex restaurants, but haven't really found anything. Could someone tell me where to go? One caveat though, I really don't want to go somewhere trendy. I would much rather go where the food is the number one priority and everything else (besides hygiene) comes second.
Thanks for your help. On many prior occasions, I have used this local site to find all the cuisines listed above (besides TexMex). Favorites have been Ostioneria Mar Azul, Sothern Comfort Takeout Kitchen and Alamo Tamale and Taco Factory.
