Busting out of a strip mall on Woodway, the original Sylvia's Enchilada Kitchen is a true Texican kitchen. Sylvia herself roams the place, checking on tables as her enormous turquoise earrings sway delicately along with her nonstop motion. She is the center of this colorful universe, where she mimics the flavors of her youth in the Rio Grande Valley. The enchiladas, of course, are the star of the show. The cheese enchiladas are fantastic. The homemade tortillas rolled and filled with a blend of cheddar cheeses and topped with Sylvia's signature enchilada chili are smooth and lack the seemingly requisite pools of grease. Meat enchiladas, too, are a win. They're packed with fresh, well-seasoned meat, and kicked up a notch by the thin, homemade sauce. Another plus? Portions are reasonable - especially for Tex-Mex/Mexican fare - and not slathered with superfluous amounts of cheese.
