Moderno Tacos + Tex Mex occupies a light, airy space in a nondescript strip mall on the western side of Beltway 8. Decked out in gently, slightly washed­out tones of blue and brown, with accents of Mexican tile in complementary colors lining the bar, it’s a comfortably sleek space. The menu sticks close to Tex­Mex and Mexican favorites, competently cooked even with a few shaky spots in execution. Highlights come in the form of supporting characters, with admirable flour tortillas and excellent refried beans rounding out many of the plates. Margaritas are top­notch, with a handful of truly excellent tequilas available to sip or shake into the signature drink. If you prefer a less­sweet take, be sure to say something to the bartender, as the drinks lean ever so slightly in that direction. While Moderno doesn’t have all the kinks worked out yet, there’s enough to like here, and enough promise, to suggest that it might become the westside’s answer for where to go for a plate of enchiladas and a good margarita.
