Laredo Taqueria

311 Patton St. Houston, TX 77009 | Heights | 713-695-0504

Location Description:

There are three Laredo Taquerias, each with its own appeal. The original on Washington Avenue is convenient to downtown and the Heights, and the one on Patton and Fulton looks like your abuela’s house is South Texas. But the Laredo Taqueria on Cavalcade has the best food. Don’t miss the calabacita tacos, the cabrito ranchero tacos and the chile verde tacos — all served on hot, handmade tortillas. No it’s not authentic Mexican; it’s South Texas Tejano cuisine.
