I never thought I'd say this, but here goes: Maybe, just maybe there are too many Tex-Mex restaurants in Houston.

I know, I know, is too much of a good thing ever bad?

Probably not, unless you're trying to figure out which Tex-Mex restaurants Houstonians think are underrated, and you discover nearly every person who submitted a comment named a different restaurant. There's no majority vote here, just a whole lotta differing (but much appreciated) opinions.

So, as we do every time we seek out your opinion on underrated food and restaurants, we've narrowed it down with a poll. All of the restaurants listed in the poll got more than one vote. Out of the 50+ recommendations we received, only 13 of them were mentioned more than once. Madness!

As usual, you have until 2 p.m. on Friday to cast your vote. You each get only one vote, so use it well.

If you take issue with the narrowed down group of restaurants and want to duke it out in the comments, be our guests. So long as things remain civil enough that we can still go out for margaritas later.

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.
