Gringo's Mexican Kitchen

This lively and noisy Houston-based chain offers reasonably priced Tex-Mex favorites and Margaritas. They are always busy, so service can suffer, but the free soft-serve ice cream makes this place about as family-friendly as one can get. Be sure to check out the homemade tamales and the tortilla soup.
