El Alteno

6917 Harrisburg Blvd. Houston, TX 77011 | East End | 713-926-1302

Location Description:

Looking like something out of a movie featuring a Mexican ranch, this building on the east end of town pulls no punches in letting you know that once you enter its doors, you're going to find Mexican food and a casual atmosphere. Regulars brag on the generously large and cheaply priced tortas as well as their assortment of traditional taqueria fare. It's open incredibly late (or early, depending on how you look at it), so if you're wandering around the area and get a hankering for some Mexican food, chances are, you'll be able to get it.
