Si.

I do agree that Tex-Mex isn't Houston's absolute strongest point, but what's great about the city is their own little spin on things. I don't know of anywhere else that I can get fried chicken tacos.

well its great you like it. I for one am a bit annoyed about the vietnamese/mexican spin on things. not sure if others notice the overuse of cilantro and sliced serrano(?) peppers here.

I'm not sure you understand what I'm trying to say. My point is that it's more than just Mexican or Vietnamese. The southern/soul food, BBQ, Cajun, sea food, etc...some of the best you'll find in Houston

LOL sorry I was done with what you were saying. I have no idea where you came from but AGAIN I'm glad you enjoy all that southern US stuff. BTW I do not think most people understand what SEA food is around here.
I was making another point in my previous post, comparing (mainly asian) food in the NE and in asia. you comprendo now?

Torchy's has always had them --

Torchy's Tacos - Menu (called the "Trailer Park")

Sometimes they also have the "Doublewide" on the menu -- which is a taco with chicken fried steak in it!

And then there is the "Libertarian", with chicken fried sausage...

Never heard of 'em. That fried avacado taco sounds pretty good though.

I love chicken fried steak and tacos, but together that sounds nasty.

No one would come just for food.

They would have to stay in the city for a few days to get the full food effect and the city isn't a tourist landmark. There's stuff to do but nothing REALLY unique so it's not worth it.
