Spanish Village

4720 Almeda Houston, TX 77004 | Third Ward | 713-523-2861

Location Description:

The splendid margaritas, Christmas lights and gooily old-fashioned combination plates at this rickety, funkily charming Tex-Mex classic haven't changed a bit. The enclosed porch, with its massive broken-tile tables, remains one of the most evocative rooms in town.
