Love the hamburgesa estilo D.F. at Tortas Las Llardas -- bacon with pineapple is a truly wacky burger topping. The bun is toasted, and the patty is big and juicy too. I may not want to eat one everyday, but it's an interesting change, especially with a lot of pickled jalapeños.
On its new website, Tortas Las Llardas claims the sandwich shops are a "new concept" offering Houstonians the famous, authentic tortas of Mexico City. A new concept? Seems like Mexico's Deli, 100% Taquitos, and a host of others have been serving authentic Mexico City tortas in Houston for many years.

I love the little sandwich shops by Tortas Las Llardas and all the convenient locations, but c'mon, guys. How can every Mexican national with a restaurant in Houston claim they invented authentic Mexican food? Why don't you guys get together and form an association? Then you could mass-produce big gold medallions that say: "Welcome to the only authentic Mexican restaurant in Houston."
