Spanish Flower Mexican Restaurant

4701 N. Main Houston, TX 77009 | Heights | 713-869-1706

Location Description:

Sure, Spanish Flower offers south-of-the-border atmosphere and Tex-Mex cuisine, but the most enticing element of this Heights-area eatery is that it serves cheesy comfort food 24/7. Favorites include chicken enchiladas in a tangy tomatillo sauce and fish tacos with a chile serrano sauce, all sided with homemade tortillas. There's also a complete breakfast menu ready round the clock.
