Top 10 Restaurants in Pearland

When we think of great dining, we think Pearland, right? Well...probably not. But if you happen to live there, you know there are plenty of places to get a good bite.

10) Gringos Mexican Café, 2202 Broadway

Yes, we know that this place isn't what it used to be, but we remember Gringos from long before it expanded into a monstrous juggernaut of corporate hell. Back in its heyday, the original Gringo's was the best place to take visiting relatives wanting some traditional, fattening, gooey Tex-Mex. And maybe it's just the nostalgia, but we still get the occasional craving for some crispy chicken taquitos served with that unerringly delicious and creamy salsa verde.
