Houston Press's Description
A small, unassuming, family-run restaurant in the Heights, El Gallo de Jalisco is one of the few joints left in the area that's remained ungentrified. It's still cash-only, and very limited English is spoken inside, but you'll also find wonderfully authentic tacos, tortas and perhaps one of the finest chicken mole plates in town. The salsas aren't at all spicy, but they taste great with a cold glass of jamaica.
Tips from foursquare
Authentic and cheap! Best breakfast tacos. Think it is cash only
Like having your own Mexican kitchen. Home cooking, tasty and fresh, generous portions, very reasonably priced. Muy bueno!
Friendly people and excellent, tasty tacos.
Small little restaurant, but authentic and home-made. Perfect!
Bring cash! No debit or CCs accepted.
