    Tacos de Carnitas super good! Horchata is yummy too. Pass on the chilaquiles though; not worth it.

    Love the Juevos Rancheros con carne (beef fajita). Come hungry because its a lot of food and so delicious with homemade flour tortillas.

    This place is awesome! I come here all the time for the best Menudo an Micheladas in town. They also have great Carne Guisada. La Mexicana is centrally located and offers excellent service.

    My favorite breakfast tacos in Houston! The chicken tortilla soup is also pretty solid.

    Decent Tex-Mex may be as plentiful as traffic jams here in Houston, but when it comes to authentic Mexican tamales, one need look no further than 25-year-old La Mexicana in Montrose. Read more

    There aren't any drink specials! Do yourself a favor and find a place on the south side of Houston for better food and bigger margaritas!

    Ordered four tacos and two drinks. Half of the tacos and all the drinks were wrong. The bill was a mess and has what we ordered not what we ate. Last time here.

    Food is great! But... Save your money and order a beer instead of the drinks... They have one ingredient: alcohol. The descriptions all sound so good, but they are not at all what they claim to be.

    It's so so. Not sure about Best of Houston
  • Prinz Snarkles v.
    Disgraceful. Prices are ridiculous considering you can throw a rock in any direction and find a mexican restaurant in Houston. Guacamole from a can, queso is like water, and enchilada plates at $15.
