I wasnt hoping it would fall when I went, I was excited after seeing positive reviews from Houston area food critics. I gotta tell you I'm at the point where I've become extremely cynical of any review that comes from a critic and not a regular Joe. El Real is awful. I was extremely disappointed with the bland and dry puffy chicken taco, the mediocre pork tamale, and the terrible tasting beef enchiladas. How do you screw up beef enchiladas? My girlfriend and I paid $35 for two plated and were only able to eat a third of it. El Real is definitely not worthy of any praise nor your money.
