Fish tacos, chicken tacos, . . . pick any two and it's a perfect lunch or breakfast with some excellent red sauce. Also has cleanest dining area and bathrooms in any taco place in Houston, so take your parents along for inside dining with good street views at the window counter, in a rapidly expanding section of Washington Avenue (X Shepherd Drive).

This is one of the best drive-thrus in the world. They have great tacos, quesadillas, and other Mexican-Cuban staples, and you don't even have to get out of your car! Be careful if you order Sprite, because I ordered that once, and they misunderstood me and gave me rice milk! (Apparently, rice milk is a Cuban beverage). But still, best dive-thru in Houston.
