El Gallo De Jalisco

3220 White Oak Drive Houston, TX 77007 | Heights | 713-863-9101

Location Description:

A small, unassuming, family-run restaurant in the Heights, El Gallo de Jalisco is one of the few joints left in the area that's remained ungentrified. It's still cash-only, and very limited English is spoken inside, but you'll also find wonderfully authentic tacos, tortas and perhaps one of the finest chicken mole plates in town. The salsas aren't at all spicy, but they taste great with a cold glass of jamaica.
