El Matador Mexican Bar & Grill
They say the mark of a good Mexican place is the enchiladas (the others, of course, are the salsa and the margs). By that measure, El Matador Mexican Bar & Grill (12797 Westheimer, 281-759-9100) is a good place indeed. El Matador's spinach chicken enchiladas ($8.99) consist of burrito-size, handmade flour tortillas crammed full of finely diced chicken, sautéed fresh spinach and Monterey Jack cheese. This is topped with a slightly tart, creamy tomatillo-cilantro salsa and more melted cheese, which becomes a molten mass that binds everything together.
