Texas Travel: El Hidalguense- Best Mexican Restaurant In Houston

Cabrito & barbecue beef tacos share the menu with other Mex favorites at this lively, basic spot.

El Hidalguense is a cozy, family-run restaurant on Long Point. For big events, you can feed an army with a whole roasted baby goat. For smaller parties, spend a reflective lunch over some enchiladas. The food here is consistently wonderful. The restaurant’s twin specialties are barbacoa de borrego estilo Hidalgo, which is Hidalgo-style lamb cooked in maguey leaves, and chivito asado al pastor, whole goat roasted over an open charcoal pit right there in the restaurant.

In the evenings, El Hidalguense is filled with expats from Hidalgo and a live mariachi band playing Huatecan music you can’t resist dancing to.
