I must admit, there's nothing wrong with El Real, but "best" my ass.
I'm tired of seeing these typical trendy Montrose Tex-Mex joints on "best of" lists.
This has all the popularity contest stylings of the Grammy Awards.
The Original Ninfa's, on Navigation, is the best Tex-Mex in the city.
Just look at Chef Padilla's credentials, look at the menu items, or best yet, eat there.
El Real is just a new dog getting a bone tossed it's way, so readers don't have to see the same winner every single year.
If you want traditional Mexican food, Hugo's is where it's at. Anyone who says otherwise is a lying lair.
