Description

When the word “enchilada” features prominently in the name of your restaurant, they’d better be good—and they are at Sylvia’s, where Houston’s “enchilada queen” Sylvia Casares serves a variety of homespun options all named after small towns in Texas’s Rio Grande Valley. Although the Westheimer location is the original, we prefer the Woodway spot, where you’ll most often find Casares, too, dishing up homemade sopa de fideo (the Tex-Mex version of chicken soup) and mesquite-grilled quail alongside popular enchilada platters like the Hidalgo, with pork carnitas and a spicy red sauce.
