Tacos Del Julio

8203 Long Point Houston, TX 77055 | Outer Loop - NW | 832-358-1500

Location Description:

There are several locations of this Houston-only chain scattered around town, but the Long Point location is a favorite for the always cheerful service. The restaurant is best known for its tacos de trompo - the Monterrey version of al pastor - served on fresh corn tortillas, but branch out a bit and try the bright and clean-tasting enchiladas del Julio or the chicken-and-avocado-filled caldo Tlalpeño. No gooey, cheesy Tex-Mex here, just simple northern Mexican food in a pleasant setting.
