Lopez Mexican Restaurant

11606 S. Wilcrest Houston, TX 77099 | Outer Loop - SW | 281-495-2436

Location Description:

This old-school Tex-Mex family restaurant is clean, fast and loud, built for high volume and informal charm. You won't find any culinary surprises on the menu -- just the standard combo platter permutations of gooey enchiladas, crunchy tacos, sizzling fajitas, green guacamole and yellow queso. But innovation really isn't the point at Lopez. What you will find here is "something for everybody," including a decent margarita for yourself.
