We got caught up in the World Cup frenzy at Fajita Flats (2929 Fondren, 713-789-3338), drinking margaritas and Coronas, and eating fajitas. Every time a team scored a goal or came close to scoring, the entire restaurant erupted -- entire tables of people jumping up and down, yelling and swinging their hands in the air. It was exciting, as were the quail-and-bacon-wrapped shrimp fajitas.

We ordered the ton-of-food "parilla especial" (guacamole, quesadillas, queso and nachos, plus a sizzling platter of quail and bacon wrapped shrimp). The quail were sweetly marinated, and the grill added a great charred flavor. The bacon-wrapped shrimp were smoky and meaty. Huge shrimp wrapped with bacon: What's not to like?

The fajita plate plus the cool, party atmosphere of Fajita Flats scored big with us. With a three-to-one ratio of people to flat screens, you won't miss a corner kick unless you're flagging down your server for another margarita!

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
