Dizzy Kaktus Is Houston’s Newest, Most Ridiculously Named Tex-Mex Spot

Were they drunk?

A city as eclectic and diverse as Houston is bound to spawn some ridiculous names, but Houston’s most absurd moniker of all time has to go to Dizzy Kaktus, the new Tex-Mex spot headed to Downtown.

Houston Streetwise scored the first glimpse of the spot, which will open its doors inside the historic Sweeney, Coombs, and Fredericks Building at 301 Main. According to Dizzy Kaktus’ Facebook page, the restaurant will maintain the building’s Victorian architecture and original hardwood floors, installed in 1887. In addition to the dining room, the restaurant also offers a spacious patio.

The concept makes a pretty big boast when it comes to the menu, claiming that they’ll serve Houston’s best tacos. A selection of 28 different tortilla-wrapped delights will be on offer, though there aren’t many hints as to what will be inside those purportedly great tacos just yet.

No word on when Dizzy Kaktus is expected to open, but you can look forward to “breakfast tacos on the go, lunch, after-work frozen margaritas” and “late-night munchies” seven days a week when it does make its official debut.
