Don't let the name fool you: Margarita Ranch isn't all about the booze. The frozen margaritas come in refreshing flavors such as mango and prickly pear, and the list of tequila offerings is impressive, but the food is a real draw here. Tortillas are fresh and flavorful, and warm chips come in two consistencies: light and thin (perfect for the smoky complimentary salsa), as well as a thicker variety that stands up under the pressure of the hearty spinach artichoke dip. Chicken fajitas and sopapillas are standouts, and if you're feeling brave, try the extremely spicy "screaming tacos," but make sure you have a cold margarita close at hand.

For more than 30 years, Niko Niko's has been offering up authentic Greek food, many of the recipes coming from founder Eleni Fetokakis's father's restaurant in Athens. A converted gas station, Niko Niko's is always bustling with diners eager to get their Greek on. Customers form a line at the counter and fire their orders off into one of the most prolific kitchens in town. Gyros served in warm puffy pita with sweet onions, juicy kabobs and Greek salads served with a large slab of feta are just some of the reasons why Houston has embraced Niko Niko's as one of its favorite family-owned joints.
In the Tex-Mex state, salsa has a lot to prove. Heat (as in spice) must make itself known but not so strongly that a full glass of water is needed after each bite. For us, the tip-off to a perfect salsa is a reaction after the initial taste of wanting to pour it on everything we order. But we weren't even thinking about salsa when we dipped that first chip at Margarita Ranch. That changed instantly as we tasted the warm, smoky near-puree. We wanted to drink the entire bowl. We would've... More »
