Greatfull Taco - Closed

2411 S. Shepherd Houston, TX 77019 | River Oaks | 281-888-2504

Location Description:

As you would expect at a taco joint with menu items named after Grateful Dead songs, Greatfull Taco isn't your average Tex-Mex place. This charmingly eccentric restaurant discourages tipping, encourages you to wear hippie gear on Funky Fridays and offers some of the best tacos in town. The Mexicali bird tastes like tortilla soup in taco form, while the brisket taco is something any smokehouse would be proud of. Even the queso fresco-topped guacamole is good, especially washed down with something from Greatfull Taco's excellent wine and beer selection.
