Molina's Cantina

4720 Washington Ave. Houston, TX 77007 | Heights | 713-862-0013

Location Description:

Molina's has become known for its Jose's dip, an ooey-gooey glob (and we mean that in the best way) of queso mixed with taco meat. It's a hearty foil to some tasty margaritas. Enchiladas are also a cut above the local standard.
