Home of the restaurant credited with introducing the country to fajitas — the original Ninfa’s, for those who have been living under a rock — it's no surprise that Houston is known to serve up some of the best Tex-Mex food in the world.

From lively destination restaurants like Flora and Armandos, to the many taco trucks and cafes that dot the city, Houston captures the magic of Tex-Mex with a breadth that’s hard to beat.
It’s not only the various cuisines that can leave a person at a standstill when deciding on where to dine, it's also the wide variety of flavors. Somewhere between the crossroads of Texan, Mexican, and Cajun flavors lies the magic of what makes Houston’s Tex-Mex scene so unique.
