La Tapatia

La Tapatia

1749 Richmond Ave., Houston, TX 77006

In a town of many fine Tex-Mex restaurants, La Tapatia is the standout. Located on a busy block of Richmond Avenue, this glorified diner offers nothing fancy, just impeccably fresh, beautifully prepared ingredients. Every dish is made to order, and the cilantro adding color and bite to your tacos puerca (pork) was chopped just for you. Don't skip a thing, from the small plates (individual soft or crispy tacos, chunky guacamole, delicate nachos) to the grande (crowded platters piled with tamales, enchiladas, tacos, and chalupas). If the appeal of Tex-Mex has escaped you, La Tapatia will explain everything.
