In Houston, we're pretty serious about our brunch. Whether it be migas and breakfast tacos or chicken and waffles and loaded Bloody Marys, we have no shortage of awesome spots to get our brunch on. Keeping later hours and killer cocktails in mind, we'll be taking a look at some of our favorite spots around town. See the complete list at the end of this post.
This week, we're moving near Washington Avenue, where we'll find bacon, bacon, and more bacon with the occasional jalapeño thrown for good measure.
Note: For purposes of this post, the Washington Corridor is defined as the strip of Washington running from Westcott to Houston, with a few blocks north or south on either side.
5. TQLA Sunday 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
We love a lot of things about TQLA. We love the bold, vibrant atmoshphere. We love that you can build your own vodka Bloody Mary or make it a "Maria" with tequila. We love that said tequila is on tap. And we love that it's totally acceptable to get a margarita for brunch because the margarita has housemade jalapeño jam and jam is brunchy.
Finally, we love that you can start the day with chips and slow-burning salsa and finish it with the XXL "gordito" cinnamon rolls, blue corn pancakes, and fiery carne asada. Love really is a burning thing.
You'll want to start with the biscuits and bacon jam at our No. 4 spot.

4. BRC Gastropub Saturday and Sunday 10 a.m. to 2:30ish p.m.
Warning: Bring your appetite to this cheeky neighborhood hotspot. More is more here and the plates come bigger than Mickey Rourke's freakishly large head. Start with some cheddar biscuits and bacon jam, then dive into a sourdough brisket and egg grilled cheese, some cream gravy-smothered fried chicken, or a stack of fluffy and decadent buttermilk pancakes with double cream, berries, and REAL maple syrup. And don't forget to wash it all down with $10 pitchers of mimosa and sangria.
