1111 S. Shepherd Houston, TX 77019 | River Oaks | 713-522-7654

Location Description:

Tila Hidalgo Leach's cheerful Mexican place in River Oaks, Tila's, matches snappy margaritas with beguiling appetizers such as salmon borracho -- thin, rosy slices of tequila-marinated salmon with lime-cilantro sauce and crisp rounds of toast. Say yes to the tortas (grilled Mexican sandwiches), the medallions of pork tenderloin and the unlikely-sounding ancho fudge pie.
