Pico's stands apart from other Houston Mexican restaurants by offering not just Tex-Mex favorites, but also traditional interior and coastal Mexican dishes. Breakfast is served daily until 3 p.m. and selections range from classic Mexican dishes such as chilaquiles and huevos ranchero to American options, like the veggie and cheddar omelet. Lunch offers good values and large portions. Dinner starts at 5 p.m., and this is when things really begin to take off. The garlic shrimp appetizer with fresh, plump shrimp swimming in a steaming bowl of garlic oil just waiting to be sopped up with thickly sliced toast, is unlike anything you would expect from a Mexican restaurant. Their famous margaritas are a must. Be prepared to wait if you show up during peak hours.
If this week's roundup of openings and closings had a theme song, it would be "Movin' On Up" from The Jeffersons. Pico's Mex-Mex is doing just that, by vacating its old Bellaire location to move into... More »

I wouldn't write a review on my first visit. Not on my 2nd visit. Or on my third visit. I waited til around my 15th visit to write a review. And all I have to say is the food is mediocre, drinks are good, and the service SUCKS for Hispanic patrons. They treat the Caucasian clientele so well, I see it whenever I'm there. They sit next to me and I see that they get a conversation and a very nice attentive waiter that my family didn't get. I could tip a lot, and I usually do when I get good service, no less than $10 regardless how little I spent. But here at Pico's, they do NOT deserve it.
Event Review: $15 for $30 at Best of Houston Winner Pico's Mex-Mex
Love Pico's. The Nachos Jorge are not like any you've ever had. Incredible! The seafood enchiladas as well as the crawfish enchiladas are a must. Delicious, delicious! Can't wait to use my coupon.
In the heart of old Bellaire lies one of the city's best restaurants, for Tex-Mex and for interior and coastal Mexican as well. Although Pico's, headed up by the venerated Arnaldo Richards, has been serving the neighborhood since 1984, the restaurant has always managed to fly just under the radar. It's never too full or too empty, the food is reliably delicious and Richards still pulls a few surprises out of his toque every now and then, like the soft-shell crab tacos that took the city by...

Few things can bring you sheer joy like a margarita the size of your head -- just as nothing can bring about sheer agony like two margaritas the size of your head. Pico's momentous 48-ounce margarita is a good balance of sweet and tart and an excellent deal. If you're in the mood for something more adventurous, Pico's also has a healthy list of top-shelf margaritas, like the San Miguel with hibiscus liquor. But it's hard to beat the original.

Pico's is known for many things, but Nachos Jorge should be near the top of the list. Piled high with savory cochinita pibil (Yucatan-style roasted pork), pickled onions, refried black beans, Chihuahua cheese, guacamole and jalapeños, these nachos are exceptional. More than enough for a meal, they're hard to stop eating until you have hunted down every last shred of cochinita on the plate. Order one of Pico's fishbowl-size margaritas to go with your nachos and you'll be a Pico's fan... More »
If you don't know what al mojo de ajo means, ask before you order. Loosely translated, it means Godzilla portions of garlic. But there must be a lot of garlic lovers out there, because Pico's camarones al mojo de ajo ($14.99) is one of the restaurant's most popular dishes. Six jumbo shrimp are lightly breaded then sautéed in olive oil and garlic. More finely minced fresh garlic is sprinkled on top during the short cooking process. The shrimp are butterflied so that more surface area... More »
