AverageAmericanGuy: There used to be a place in Factoria called Torrerro's. I may be using an incorrect number of 'r's in the name.

It was the worst Tex-Mex place I've ever been. But it was close to the office and it had a large dining area, so without fail it was used for company functions.

Now it's a Brazilian steakhouse.


You ordered off the menu, didn't you?

When I was working up in Kirkland, we would go there and order the stuff that was not on the menu. They made this killer habenero salsa that would weld your asshole shut and if their steak melansia was to die for when you asked for it "native".

The shiat on the menu was for the boring, white-bread-and-mayo gringos who ate there thinking they were eating "ethnic food".

Is the Games Workshop store still there? It was east of Torrero's in the same parking lot.

You know it's good when the place has bars on the windows. That means it's in the hood and mostly locals go there. I'm guessing gringos stay away after dark though. There are many places like that in SoCal and mostly they rock.

Yup. And every sign in the neighborhood should be in Spanish. The only problems being...

a) the guy taking your order doesn't understand you and after 10 frustrating minutes you just point at some random thing and give money

b) if you're driving near Irvington and Fulton in a car worth more than $1000, there's an 80% chance you're getting pulled over cause HPD thinks you're out there trying to score.

I've lived here too long not to know Spanish. Rosetta Stone, here I come!!

It's delicious, but try explaining to that waiter what exactly it is that your vegan girlfriend can't eat. That's hard enough for some folks to grasp when everyone's fluent in the same language.

We don't go out to eat much...


lol. Yea, I imagine people that have known not knowing where your next meal is coming from probably think that's just bizzare.

No doubt. The carnitas are crazy good.

scotchcrotch: Pappasitto's is a chain in Houston and is delicious.

Not authentic as Tacos Bell, but good


All the Pappas chains are pretty good, its just gotten a bit pricey lately. Papassito's, Taqueria Arandas and Chuy's are good enough in a pinch.

And 2 Hookers and an 8 Ball, I'll give that a shot next time I'm near Katy.

Haven't lived in Houston in years, but every time I go back, Sylvia's Enchilada Kitchen on Westheimer and Dairy Ashford. Get the Enchilada's and finish it with Tres Leche. mmmmmm...I miss Tex-Mex - none to be found worth a damn here in NYC.

Leno in a club/public performance is a different animal than what you see on the Tonight show. Granted, this was some time ago now, but when I saw him, he killed; I very nearly wet my pants and not from being an old incontinent geriatric.

No one has yet pointed out that Mencia is not merely unfunny; he tells more racist jokes than Larry the Cable Guy: "WHAT? WHAT DID I SAY? I'm a beaner, I can say beaner 4,000 times in lieu of anything funny."

Ed Willy: I don't understand why celebrities continue to invest in restaurants. They are a risky venture to begin with, and few celebrities have done anything in their life that makes me think: You know what, I'm hungry. I wonder what Hulk Hogan eats".

I imagine the music they play is pretty... consistent.

Saw him live in springfield, mo last may. I went in skeptical and ended up laughing my ass off all night. He has a very funny bit now, and none of it was stolen that I could tell. Most of his jokes were based on personal life experiences growing up.

Cheeseburger in Paradise is honestly the worst restaurant I've ever been to. It's so over priced and bland, I left there genuinely angry because it was the biggest rip off I've ever experienced in a restaurant. Honestly, I've had better Whoppers with cheese than what I ate there. Any greasy spoon in the Keys will serve up a much better hamburger at less than half the price.

I was ther last weekend. It was terrible. My food was sloshed in hot tomato water. However the Rita's were smoky and I had four because my date was unbearable. FML!

Houston may be one of the worst cities in the country to start up a Tex-mex/mexican restaurant. If it doesn't taste amazing and every meal comes in under 10$, you won't survive here.

Thresher:

Yup. I just wish they weren't so inconsistent. The one near my house in Humble is very hit or miss but the one in Aldine is usually pretty damn good. Love the bakery.

THIS!! Anyone in Houston remember On The Border? Most of them were out of business in a month.
