Forget nachos, tacos and Tex-Mex in general. At Hugo's, the brunch features regional Mexican cuisine at its finest. Set the scene with Bloody Marias or a pomegranate mimosa and enjoy the live music coming from the upstairs balcony before venturing to the elaborately decorated buffet. It contains an incredible variety of delectable dishes not found in your average cantina. Start out with a soothing corn soup; then try the sweet corn pudding or the delicious ceviche or the ensalada de nopales (cactus salad) or the squash stuffed with huitlacoche (a corn fungus). Return for the best carnitas ever or the chilaquiles with fried eggs. At this point, you still have half the buffet to taste, but you may wish to go straight to the dessert station anchored by tres leches cake, which ranks among the best in the city, and a rich, traditional hot chocolate, which, along with churros, is not to be missed.

Over priced and poor service. I wanted it to be really great but it was not. Houston has better to offer... so many better. I agree with the other post; this must be a PR thing.


completely disagree with RUJoking. a great, great, great brunch. only complaint is that the next few hours after hugo\'s are spent in a semi-comatose state. great place to take people from out of town.


This can't be serious . . . their food is horrid, overpriced and the service is substandard! This isn't best brunch, best Mexican food, best anything . . . well perhaps "best hyped with no substance". Baba Yega's is so much better than Hugo's, in fact there are so many other places better than Hugo's. This list has to be a PR generated list.
